(Washington, D.C.) –The Office of Police Complaints (OPC) today announced three organizations - Gays and Lesbians Against Violence (GLOV), Office on Asian Pacific and Islander Affairs (APIA), and The Washington Legal Clinic for the Homeless as the first official partners of its new Community Partnership Program.
The Community Partnership Program, which launched in February 2015, was created to provide the public with additional ways to access OPC’s information by collaborating with a diverse group of organizations and services providers throughout the District of Columbia.
GLOV, APIA, and The Washington Legal Clinic for the Homeless currently have brochures and complaint forms available for anyone who wishes to learn more about OPC or file a police misconduct complaint against Metropolitan Police Department or D.C. Housing Authority Office of Public Safety officers.
“I am excited to have GLOV, APIA, and The Washington Legal Clinic for the Homeless a part of our program,” said Michael G. Tobin, OPC’s executive director. “With community collaboration, OPC will be able to expand the ability for community members to file a complaint.”
