File an Employee Commendation
The MPD does its best to recognize employees who provide exemplary service. The monthly CHAMPS awards and the Annual Awards Ceremony, held each year, are just two examples of ways the MPD acknowledges an employee's good work. Often, an employee's supervisor will submit his or her name for recognition. Additionally, community members or visitors to DC who have had a positive experience with an MPDC officer or civilian employee are invited to share their positive experiences by submitting a commendation.
To submit a commendation, simply download the commendation form [PDF], complete it, and, after printing it out, mail or fax it to the appropriate office.
If you know the unit and supervisor of the individual you're commending, please mail or fax the form directly to the supervisor. To get an address for an MPD unit or office, go to the telephone directory. If you only have the employee's name, please be sure to include the location where you encountered him or her, and mail or fax the commendation to:
