MPD Special Liaison Unit & Listserv Group
Expansion of the Special Liaison Unit and new Listserv Group
The Metropolitan Police Department (MPD) is pleased to announce the expansion of the Special Liaison Unit to better serve the needs of the community. The Special Liaison Unit supports community policing with communities that are sometimes underserved, and is composed of the following:
- Asian Liaison Unit
- Deaf and Hard of Hearing Liaison Unit
(202) 698-0289 or (202) 727-5437 (TTY)
- Gay and Lesbian Liaison Unit
- Latino Liaison Unit
The Special Liaison Unit is expanding to include "affiliate" officers on patrol throughout the city. The affiliate officers have volunteered to receive specialized training on diverse communities, their issues, and how to best serve them. They will continue to work in their home district but will receive coordinated support, information, and trainings through the liaison units.
This expansion will enable MPD to:
- Enhance response to these communities throughout the city, 24 hours a day, seven days a week.
- Provide consistent information to these communities while ensuring that information about their needs is integrated into services in each patrol district.
- Reinforce the messages of progressive training, policies, and procedures department-wide.

Edward Delgado, Captain Contacting a liaison unit or affiliate officer In case of emergency, or for immediate police response, always call 911. Once police are on the scene, a request can be made to contact an on-duty affiliate or Liaison officer. For other police services, such as to request that an affiliate or Liaison officer attend a meeting or discuss other non-emergency issues, please contact the liaison offices. These offices are not staffed 24-hours a day, but all calls will be returned within one business day.
