Statement on Last Night's Violence
STATEMENT OF ROBERT VINSON BRANNUM
CHAIRMAN, 5TH DISTRICT CITIZENS’ ADVISORY COUNCIL
DC METROPOLITAN POLICE DEPARTMENT
Sadly last night our Ward 5 community experienced another round of senseless violence and killings. Naturally, our hearts go out the families of the victims. As Chairman of the 5th District Citizens’ Advisory Council, I call upon those who have information which may lead to the apprehension and convictions of those who committed these violent acts to contact DC MPD. As individual citizens, a community, and a government, we must work together to create strategies, policies, and initiatives to respond.
Each of us in Ward 5 and across the District has a right and a need to live, to work and to socialize in peace and harmony. The 5th District Citizens’ Advisory Council is committed to informing residents and working with DCMPD to maintain a peaceful and safe Ward 5.
Robert Vinson Brannum
