DC Councilman Charles Allen’s Community Meetings

Charles Allen, who represents Ward 6 and Capitol Hill on the DC Council, periodically holds community meetings to provide updates on various issues and solicit feedback. The best way to find out about these meetings is to sign-up for email updates on his website.

Police Community Meetings

The First District CAC provides the First District Commander with information and recommendations from the community on public safety problems and police service needs in the entire First District (which includes more than the Capitol Hill neighborhoods). Regular CAC meetings allow residents to meet and discuss police-related issues with the Commander. The meetings also provide an opportunity for police officials to assess the impact of their crime-fighting efforts on the community.

Capitol Hill is divided into several Police Service Areas (PSAs). Each PSA has a team of police officers and officials assigned to it and each generally holds community meetings once a month to discuss crime concerns and provide updates at the neighborhood level. To find out when and where the PSA for your area meets, contact the District Lieutenant assigned to your PSA.
