box
 n.— «It’s where the drugs are. Where the crack is. An area that soft-spoken, veteran police Lieutenant Lionel Garcia calls “the box.” It’s an informal term in cop-speak that means the floating area of most concentrated crime in any given precinct.» —“Inside the Box With the Super Dope Cops” by Sam Slovick L.A. Weekly Dec. 23, 2005. (source: Double-Tongued Dictionary)
