New Bethesda Police District To Include Potomac


Published:

Montgomery County Police today announced that its redistricting plan, which includes moving Potomac into Bethesda's 2nd District, will go into effect on Monday. The redistricting comes in part because of the department's move to a new headquarters facility in Gaithersburg and the future relocation of the 1st District station (which used to cover Potomac) to that facility. The announcement today said planning has been going on throughout the department and there should be no disruption to police operations. In a November community meeting, 2nd District Commander Capt. Dave Falcinelli said the Bethesda District shift shouldn't be too burdensome because Potomac actually used to belong to the area. County Police Chief Thomas Manger said the redistricting effort is to better organize the distribution of officers. Manger said one major reason for the reshuffling was the difficulty for officers in the Rockville police district to get out to Poolesville in rural northwestern Montgomery County. The Bethesda District will now extend from the Chevy Chase/Silver Spring line west to the Potomac River and north to Montrose Road, commonly held as the dividing line between North Bethesda and Rockville.
