Peter Newsham September 2016 to present
Chief Newsham moved into the Chiefs spot in a spot light recently with the Presidential Inauguration this past January. Close attention was given as it was given international observation. The M.P.D.C. did a great job handling it. The job was done without justified complaints, the moral of the troops was high and the men and women of the M.P.D.C. held their line under the leadership of Chief Newsham.

On February 23rd Peter Newsham was confirmed as the new Chief of Police for the Washington D.C. Metropolitan Police. His first day on the job was a hectic one with two of his officers being shot, they both survived.
