(Note: published Monday, June 1, 2020, to the County website and on social media)

At the direction of the County Board, County Manager and Police Chief, all ACPD officers left the District of Columbia at 8:30 p.m. Monday, June 1, 2020. The County is re-evaluating the agreements that allowed our officers to be put in a compromising position that endangered their health and safety, and that of the people around them, for a purpose not worthy of our mutual aid obligations.
