"In 1986, police took over Hanover Place, where Tony Lewis lived. It was a year-long, 24-hour-a-day occupation: there was a command-center in a trailer, and a daily rotation of 60 officers patrolling the immediate area.
The city boarded up 47 vacant buildings. The Department of Public Works hauled away 300 tons of trash — old couches and mattresses that had been used to barricade alleys and stymie police. Not just furniture, but abandoned cars too: police recovered 41 stolen vehicles in the area."
‘It was pretty massive in terms of the expense,’ says Fulwood.
In overtime hours alone, it cost MPD more than million. But the results of operations like this were mixed, at best.
“You would walk away from there and say, ‘Gosh, we’ve done all these things and yet we’re still having some of the same problems.’ Because now the problem has moved from Hanover Place, to P Street, which is a block away.” – see wamu.org/news/14/01/14/crack_1
