District of Columbia Mayor Vincent Gray is standing by his fire chief and deputy mayor for public safety amid calls for their resignation.
D.C. officials have launched a formal investigation into why a fire department ambulance was not available to transport a police officer injured in a hit-and-run crash.
A large number of D.C. firefighters called out sick on New Year's Eve, leaving the city short-staffed on a busy night.
The Metropolitan Police Department is moving a liaison unit that works with the city's Asian community from its longtime home in Chinatown, a quiet change that ignited fears the police chief plans to tinker with another specialized crew despite vows that little will change except where the officers store their gear.
Mayor Vincent C. Gray said voters in Ward 5 made “an outstanding choice” in picking Kenyan McDuffie to be their voice on the D.C. Council and restore integrity to a seat marred by scandal.
Washington residents are up in arms, though not armed. With violent crime up 40 percent in the first two months of the year - including double the number of robberies at gunpoint - residents are looking for ways to protect themselves. Elected officials and police have no solution.
D.C. firefighters are being dispatched on late-night patrols to high-crime areas as deterrents and during the day to provide payday protection for residents enrolled in the city's youth-jobs program, raising safety concerns for the "unarmed" firefighters.
But deputy mayor Paul Quander says the firefighter should have known he could have responded.
And he says Ellerbe is reforming the department, in part by hiring more district residents.
