      MENDELSON TO HOLD TOWN HALL MEETING ON PUBLIC SAFETY
      Theme for the citywide session is "Make Public Safety a Community
      Affair."

      (Washington, DC) Councilmember Phil Mendelson (At-
      Large) recently announced that he is holding a Town Hall Meeting to
      address a wide spectrum of issues related to crime in the District of
      Columbia. Members of the public are invited to join Mendelson and a
      number of officials who are slated to make brief presentations and
      answer questions on topics ranging from crime prevention to
      prosecution, and detention to rehabilitation.

      The Town Hall will be held on Monday, April 23rd at
      Ward Memorial A.M.E. Church from 6:30 until 8:30 pm. Located at 241
      42nd Street, NE, Ward Memorial is accessible via the Benning Road
      stop on Metrorail's Blue Line and is also accessible via the V7, U2,
      and W4 Metrobusses.

      Confirmed guests at the Town Hall are: Chief of
      Police Cathy Lanier, DC Attorney General Linda Singer, US Attorney
      Jeffery Taylor, and Devon Brown, Director of the Department of
      Corrections. Also invited are representatives from the DC Superior
      Court, Public Defender Service, Pretrial Services Agency, Bureau of
      Prisons, and the Court Services & Offender Supervision Agency (CSOSA).

      "I urge the residents of the District to join me at
      this Town Hall and take advantage of this opportunity to air their
      concerns and get straight answers to their questions on public safety-
      related issues," stated Mendelson. "Not often are all of the key
      players in one place at the same time, and no issue is too large or
      too small when it comes to making our neighborhoods safer places to
      live, work, play, and learn."
