Modified Operations to MPD Headquarters Begins Thursday, April 9, 2020

Thursday, April 9, 2020

For the safety of the public and Metropolitan Police Department (MPD) members, access to the MPD Headquarters building will be modified to employees and members of the public with confirmed appointments, effective immediately. The current public health emergency is constantly evolving and requires MPD to limit exposure without interruption to the high level of service that is provided to the community. It is necessary that MPD maintains a healthy workforce so we may continue to provide police services across the District. Implementing modified public access to MPD Headquarters, located at 300 Indiana Avenue, NW, during the operating hours of 9 am through 5 pm, will potentially reduce exposure to the coronavirus.

This latest service adjustment is a temporary modification for the community and MPD members will continue to take pride in providing professional-level service through the duration of the public health emergency. Members of the public should not show up in-person to MPD Headquarters to schedule an appointment but refer to the below table for available options.

It is important that MPD facilities remain open at this time as we do our part to maintain the safety and well-being of our members and the community. We appreciate the public's patience, understanding and cooperation.
