May-August 2020 Unrest-Related Arrests and Persons of Interest

There are peaceful demonstrations in the District of Columbia on a daily basis. The same rules apply for all demonstrations in DC and we welcome anyone to our city who wants to come to exercise their First Amendment rights peacefully. The Metropolitan Police Department will work with organizers to facilitate. If there are persons that destroy property or hurt someone at any time, police will take action. MPD rarely has to make an arrest at a demonstration but in the event that we do, know that it will be done safely and respectfully.

NOTE: The arrest data summary provided below is a preliminary count of arrests that have been processed. These numbers are subject to change as the MPD continues to process arrests or make new arrests based on photos and/or video footage.
