One hundred new traffic enforcement cameras will begin issuing tickets to motorists in the District on Saturday, following a month delay in the start of the program.
A slew of new traffic cameras expected to begin issuing tickets on Monday to drivers in the District will not go live as planned, according to the Metropolitan Police Department.
The D.C. police department has released information about how to re-register firearms in the city — two years after the original deadline.
The District of Columbia is the only place in the country that refuses to abide by the constitutional mandate that individuals have the right to bear arms. The city is a playground for criminals because they know the law-abiding aren’t armed. This week, however, one bad guy picked the wrong woman.
An off-duty D.C. police officer fired on a man who pointed an assault rifle at him Wednesday night in Southeast, authorities said.
Glitches in the Metropolitan Police Department's new data-management system are preventing officials from producing a key comprehensive crime report that tells authorities whether the crime rate is getting better or worse in D.C. neighborhoods and across the city.
D.C. police and the FBI were investigating late Friday what they believe was the intentional crash of an SUV into a downtown office building, police said.
The Metropolitan Police Department has issued some 7,000 speeding tickets and demanded more than $1.2 million in fines since November from speed cameras in the Third Street Tunnel in Northwest D.C.
As Metropolitan Police Chief Cathy L. Lanier renegotiated her $253,000-a-year salary this week as the nation's fourth highest paid police administrator, one argument unavailable to her was that she is hurting for money.
The Metropolitan Police Department is complying with a recent ruling that forces it to pay overtime to officers who worked extra shifts in 2009 as part of Chief Cathy L. Lanier's signature crime-prevention initiative, All Hands on Deck.
One of Metropolitan Police Department Chief Cathy L. Lanier's methods of disciplining officers above the rank of captain accused of misconduct — or who have failed to meet her expectations — is to designate them as at-will employees who can be fired or demoted without the due-process rights commonly afforded to police officers.
"Wow, what else?" That was the question an undercover D.C. police officer posed to a masseuse during an October 2009 investigation of a now-shuttered massage parlor across the street from the U.S. Marine Corps barracks on Eighth Street Southeast.
Metropolitan Police say an officer suffered minor injuries after a marked cruiser responding to an emergency hit a vehicle involved in the filming of "Transformers 3."
As Chief Lanier has always held that she maintains the ultimate personnel authority to impose discipline, Ms. Crump said, there is not expected to be any increase in the number of cases with which the chief disagrees.
"The overarching issue in each case was that we did not feel that the OPC investigation had established sufficient cause to impose discipline — in one case, OPC reached a legal conclusion that was different than two separate prosecutors and two separate judges who had themselves reviewed aspects of the case," D.C. police spokeswoman Gwendolyn Crump wrote in response to questions about the opinion.
