Metropolitan Police Chief Cathy L. Lanier scheduled five more installments of her signature All Hands On Deck crime-fighting initiative, which has received mixed reviews from lawmakers and residents.
Metropolitan Police say it is not clear how a steep drop in tickets issued by automated speed cameras in recent months has affected program revenue, because motorists often pay their fines a month or two months after they are cited.
The number of citations issued in the District's speed-camera program fell from 21,687 in February to 4,527 in March — a 79 percent decrease — but the amount of fines the citations generated remained relatively unchanged.
As a result of the ACLU's request, the ethics board has ordered its subordinate agency, the Office of Open Government, to investigate, open government director Traci Hughes said.
"Hopefully, the Mayor's Office and the agencies mentioned in Mr. Mulhauser's letter will be forthcoming and candid regarding the reasons for the backlog, and address the complaint that there appears to be a shutdown of the FOIA process," Ms. Hughes wrote in a statement about the investigation.
