 Although this web site is dedicated to the Washington D.C. Metropolitan Police Department there is a whole lot more to the city. Washington D.C. is one of the most interesting cities I have visited, and I have seen a lot of this world. Yes there are tough parts of D.C. like in all cities, but the history available in D.C. is note worthy to say the least. 

With the help and permission of  Washington D.C. Metropolitan Police Officer Andre E. Myrick along with a few others, I hope to show you some of this. Much of this page will be the photography of Andre E. Myrick, all pictures on this page will be his unless otherwise marked.
