On Target Magazine

Welcome to the online edition of On Target, a quarterly magazine covering the news, stories, events, and profiles of the men and women who make up the Metropolitan Police Department. Each issue will provide a behind-the-scenes look at the ways these individuals are working to make the District of Columbia the safest place to live, work, and play it can be. The publication is chiefly published online at this website, but limited printed copies will be available at police district stations and other MPD facilities.
