Lights for "Safety Zone"D.C. Police are bolstering patrols and providing additional lighting on H Street NE and at four other corridors in the city to protect late night commuters, officials announced yesterday.

Extra police will stand guard at 1400 H St. NE and four other locations each Wednesday through Sunday from 11 p.m. to 3 a.m.

The MPD Nightlife Unit created the “nightlife safety zones” to give locals safe places to wait while they figure out how they’re going to get home.

Other safety zones include:

  • 600 7th St. NW in Chinatown
  • 1201 and 1250 Connecticut Ave. NW in Dupont Circle
  • 1925 Vermont Ave. NW and 2014 14th St. NW near U Street
