Training on Obtaining Information from DC MPD

Dear neighbors,

A fellow journalist is organizing a community conversation/training session at 6:30 p.m. on Tuesday, Oct. 12 about getting information from the Metropolitan Police. I thought it might be of interest to some. Speakers include:

● Amy Phillips, DC public defender

● Mitch Ryals, reporter, Washington City Paper

● Michael Perloff, ACLU of the District of Columbia

● Catherine Young, DC resident who has struggled to piece together information from the

police shooting in 2018 of her son D’Quan Young

● Miranda Spivack, journalist and open government expert, D.C. OGC board member,moderator

This is the second in a series of free open government trainings that will continue through the fall and winter, and focus on how to locate a range of information such as criminal justice data, social services data, and data from multi-government and multi-state agencies. Please come prepared with your questions about the best ways to get information from DC's police department. We look forward to seeing you at Digging into DC!
