Accurate reporting by initial non-GLLU MPD responders can be non-existent unless a MPD-GLLU officer is called to the scene in LGBT-related cases.
To err is human. And even experienced MPD-GLLU officers can make reporting mistakes which need 'AMENDING' (correcting of errors or omissions).
All crime victims should insist upon accurate police reporting on PD-10 and PD-251 reports. If crime victims do not receive a CCN number and calling card from responding officers they should definitely question the officer(s) as to why...
That's especially important with respect to hate crimes and stalking crimes, where the crimes can often repeat and escalate in severity unless a perpetrator is stopped. Having an ACCURATE 'paper trail' of police reports can be essential to apprehending a repeat hate crime offender or stalker.
There is more to good Community Policing than just a dedication to a diverse, inclusive PD force.
P.S. -- If you don't get professional and accurate police service from anyone at MPD, you can always file a complaint with DC's Office of Police Complaints...
... and perhaps send a courtesy copy to COUNCIL's Judiciary and Public Safety Committee members-- who have oversight responsibility for MPD -- especially if there appears to be a discriminatory or biased policing problem.

I remember a time when a Commander in another District wasn't conversationally familiar with the GLLU Affiliate program, let alone knew them by name.
The SLD unit was a good bit newer then, of course.
Brian,Thank you for posting the information. You can also add Officer Laini Evans as a 1D GLLU affiliate.
