The Metropolitan Police Department works with an advisory panel in each police district. These councils are called the Citizens Advisory Council (CAC) and each provide the district commander with information and recommendations from the community on the public’s safety problems and police service needs. Regular monthly CAC meetings in each district allow residents to meet and discuss police-related issues with the commander. The meetings also provide an opportunity for police officials to assess the impact of their crime-fighting efforts on the community.
The 5th District CAC meeting will be held tonight (September 24th) starting at 7 pm. The meetings are at the 5th District Police Station at 1805 Bladensburg Road NE.
The guest speaker this month is Attorney General Karl A. Racine. He will cover topics ranging from prisoner early release programs, crime reduction initiatives, and synthetic drugs.
The CAC meetings are open to all DC residents and are a place where you can take security concerns to discuss with the Police Commander.
