Working closely with DC-area fire and police response teams is something we do on a regular basis. And as with any great working relationship, it’s nice to converse outside of normal business hours. As a sponsor of MPD’s 2nd District Citizens Advisory Council Awards Benefit, this past October, we were honored to chat and dine with some of DC’s distinguished police officers.
The event, which recognized the outstanding service of Second District police officers, was also a community fundraiser. The proceeds from the banquet helped cover the cost for police officers to attend the event and to aid in community programs like National Night Out and the Second District Halloween haunted house.
The District Citizens Advisory Council (CAC) is an advisory panel, present in each MPD district, that provides the district commander with information and recommendations from the community on the public’s safety. At Urban Alarm, we work closely with MPD on security alarm response and CACs provide an additional resource to the communities we serve.
