Office of Police Complaints Moves to New Location

Tuesday, January 3, 2006

(Washington, DC) The DC Office of Police Complaints (OPC), the District's police accountability agency, today announced its move to new offices at 1400 I Street, NW, Suite 700, Washington, DC, 20005.

The move is an important step in the development of the agency which has increased its staff to 20 full-time employees, and outgrew its office space on 11th Street.

According to Philip K. Eure, the executive director of OPC, "We've recently been able to hire new investigators to improve the Office of Police Complaints' ratio of investigators to sworn officers, moving it closer to the ratio of other agencies that investigate police misconduct complaints. This move not only addresses our immediate need for more office space, but provides more room to interview citizens and police officers."

The Office of Police Complaints' new offices are conveniently located above the 14th Street exit of the McPherson Square Metro Station, which is serviced by Metro's Blue and Orange line trains and several bus lines.

Although the agency's address changed, the public can still reach OPC staff by telephone at (202) 727-3838, by fax at (202) 727-9182, and on the web at www.policecomplaints.dc.gov.
