The MPD Fifth District Citizens’ Advisory Council, Inc. (5DCAC) is a non-profit group established in partnership with the Fifth District Police Headquarters and DC Metropolitan Police Department (DCMPD). The purpose of 5DCAC is to enable citizens to assist in and to make less hazardous the task of reducing crime and promoting public safety, and to function in an advisory capacity to the Fifth District Commander and to the MPD Chief of Police.
The objectives of 5DCAC include planning and implementing programs to develop neighborhood awareness, cohesiveness and responsibility for crime problems among citizens of the 5th District community. The 5DCAC supports and expects the highest police standards of service and efficiency. The 5DCAC will conduct surveys of community needs which affect law enforcement and maintenance of peace in the community, and to publicize these needs as they are discovered.
The 5DCAC will involve as many persons and community organizations as possible to maintain the public safety and improve police community relations, advise other appropriate government officials on matters as public safety, health, streets and sanitation within the Fifth District. The 5DCAC will also recommend policy changes in the proper oversight authority of the District’s police community relations and police coverage in the Fifth District service area.
