    Adams Morgan

    D.C. police have announced this week that they will once again be increasing their presence in Adams Morgan during the summer months.

    The department launched their summer initiative, "Operation Adams Morgan," in 2011. It was designed to cut down on late-night crime and disturbances in the Northwest neighborhood, which has become a popular hangout due to a preponderance of bars and nightclubs.

    "We are currently finalizing all the particulars and have reunited with a few old partners to be able to bring Adams Morgan once again, one of the most efficient enforcement efforts in the region," read a statement from D.C. police released this week. In the past, officers have sought to crack down on underage drinking, drunk driving, and other alcohol and drug-related offenses.

    Operation Adams Morgan will remain in effect until September 1.
