Greenbelt police need to do a better job of allocating assets. Almost every night as I come come around midnight, I see traffic stops. Perhaps they are for serious crimes, perhaps they are for speeders. Cruisers can frequently be seen in the median along Rt. 201 as well as on Walker Drive. Perhaps a change to maintain one car on Breezewood would be better. Short of moving around limited assets, raising taxes solely to add more officers might be in order. Even better, ask the U.S. Attorneys office for assistance in bringing in a multi-agency strike force to clean things up such as was done last year in Herndon, Va. Offer them free housing in the old Springhill Lakes Apartments.

Cheaper and better idea is to destroy old springhill lakes apartments build some single family homes, that way the criminals that live there will locate somewhere else. Greenbelt has become a haven for criminals all matching the description above, except add females to the mix too.
