The Morning Metropolitan

Good morning Georgetown, here’s the latest:

  • Interesting tidbit: the reason the DC police department is called the Metropolitan Police Department is that it was formed at a time when there were separate jurisdictions in DC with their own police forces, such as the city of Georgetown. The Metropolitan descriptor was mean to reflect it being a force for the whole District.
  • A little more on why the city is considering removing some historical figures’ names from DC properties, including in Georgetown.
