On May 26, 2009, Mayor Adrian M. Fenty joined Metropolitan Police Department
Chief Cathy L. Lanier and Office of Property Management Director Robin-Eve Jasper to
break ground on the future state-of-the-art Property and Evidence Warehouse for the
Metropolitan Police Department.

The new 30,000 square-foot warehouse MPD Property and Evidence Warehouse will
greatly improve upon the current facility in the areas of design, capacity, safety, security,environmental working conditions, air conditioning, lighting, electricity, and inventory tracking automation.

The new and improved facility will feature computer-automated storage system for
logging and retrieval of evidence; secure and controlled access to all areas; video event logging of transactions; radio frequency handheld portable terminals; bar code scanning & printing techniques; and refrigerated units for storing DNA samples
The District expects construction to be complete by the fall of 2010. The project is
also expected to achieve at least LEED Silver certification or higher, incorporating the sustainable development goals for all public projects as outlined in the District’s Green DC Agenda.
