      COUNCILMEMBER PHIL MENDELSON
      HOLDS CITY-WIDE
      PUBLIC SAFETY TOWN HALL MEETING


      Washington, DC - Councilmember Phil Mendelson (D-At-Large) will host
      a city-wide Town Hall meeting on public safety on March 9, 2006. The
      Town Hall meeting -- "From Criminal Investigation to Incarceration
      and Beyond"- will bring together the District's most important
      public safety officials to listen and respond to resident concerns.

      Councilmember Mendelson, Chairman of the Judiciary Committee, has
      invited Police Chief Charles Ramsey, U.S. Attorney Ken Wainstein,
      Chief Judge Rufus King, Department of Corrections Director Devon
      Brown, DC Attorney General Robert Spagnoletti and Court Services and
      Offender Supervision Agency (CSOSA) Director Paul Quander to
      participate.

      "The issue of public safety is a continuing concern among District
      residents," states Mendelson. "Although crime in most categories has
      declined, everyone agrees there is still too much. I share the view
      of many, that there needs to be greater presence of police in our
      neighborhoods, that offenders too often seem able to return to the
      streets within hours of arrest, and that the government has failed to
      slow the revolving door of recidivism."

      The meeting will be held at Savoy Elementary School located at 2400
      Shannon Place, SE beginning at 6:30pm. The school is located across
      from the Anacostia Metro Station.
