Old Police Call Boxes of Washington

Most of you probably walk right by those old police boxes scattered throughout the city. Some of them have been turned into miniature art exhibits — like the ones in Mt. Pleasant. Check out the video above of Sgt. Nicholas Breul of DCPD gives a brief talk on the history of these police call boxes.

Surely Officer Sprinkle was intimately familiar with these call boxes.
