Join MPD for a Virtual “Chat with the Chief”

March 9, 2021 @ 1:30 pm - 2:30 pm EST

Our partners with the Metropolitan Police Department (MPD) invite you to join them on Tuesday, March 9 at 6:30pm for a virtual “Chat with the Chief.” Acting Police Chief Robert Contee (pictured alongside MVT’s Kenyattah Robinson in the below photos from our National Night Out event in 2016) once served as Commander of MPD’s First District, which includes Mount Vernon Triangle.

Event Description: 
If the last year has taught us nothing else, it’s that we must always be ready and willing to change, to adjust and to learn. In that spirit, and in the spirit of ensuring our agency continues to be responsive to the needs of our community, we invite you for a conversation with UDC professors Dr. Bernard Demczuk, Dr. Sharita Jacobs-Thompson and Chief Contee on Tuesday, March 9 via Zoom. Joined by several community members the panel will discuss the current state of policing here in Washington DC and the needs of residents. The panel will touch on critical topics, such as the role of police in society, what should the police be doing, what should the police not being doing, and what other services does our community need to ensure public safety.
