The Metropolitan Police Department (MPD) is constantly working to build stronger relationships with community members. We partner with other agencies to develop professional ties. We collaborate with community members at the monthly PSA police community meetings, as well as through numerous community outreach programs. And we reach out to the city's youth through a variety of specialized programs. All of the actions make one thing clear—the MPD and the community are working together to make the District of Columbia a safer place to live, work, and play.
