Saturday’s MPD Meet and Greet, organized by Councilmember Anita Bonds, was well attended. In addition to a room full of residents, many ANC Commissioners from 1A and 4C were there, and Councilmember Elissa Silverman showed up during the latter half of the meeting.
Representing the police were 4D Commander Wilfredo Manlapaz and Captain Vendette Parker. The event was originally organized as a meet and greet so that residents could better know the officers patrolling their communities. However, with only two representatives from MPD there, the format changed into a question and answer session.
Drew Schneider posted a fairly detailed overview of the meeting at this Petworth News page which is worth a read as well.
