An officer speaks at the May 1, 2019 meeting of the 1D Citizens' Advisory Council, held at Liberty Church.

To respond to community concerns voiced at last month’s meeting of the First District Citizen’s Advisory Council (CAC), there will be a Working Group on Public Safety in Hill East on Wednesday, Nov. 6.

The working group aims to address concerns expressed about assaults, juveniles and juvenile prosecution in Metropolitan Police Department (MPD) Police Serve Areas (PSAs) 106, 107 and 108.

Invited participants include DC Attorney General Karl Racine (unconfirmed as of press time), DC Superior Court Social Services, the Office of Councilmember Charles Allen, 1st District Crime Victim’s Office and MPD Community Outreach.

These participants will address concerns in regard to juvenile prosecution, juvenile court supervision, case management of personal incidents and ways to help beyond arrests.

At the meeting, MPD Commander Morgan Kan will report on crime and violence. The Mayor’s Office of Community Resources and Services (MOCRS) will also be in attendance and outreach will be available to engage residents and business as well as to provide additional information.

The meeting takes place from 6 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. Wednesday, Nov. 6 at Payne Elementary School (1445 C St. SE).
