Welcome to the Fifth District

Welcome to the Fifth District

As a native Washingtonian, it is with anticipation and pleasure that I have been selected to serve as the Commander of the Fifth District.  I am familiar with the Fifth District, as I previously resided in the Woodridge area for approximately nine years.  I am excited to be working with my fellow Metropolitan Police Department members and returning to the Fifth District community.

I have 23 years of service with the Metropolitan Police Department. During my tenure, I have been assigned to the First, Second, Sixth and Seventh Patrol Districts, as well as various administrative assignments. My most recent assignment was in Patrol Services and School Security Bureau.

I look forward to seeing you in the community.

Dierdre N. Porter, Commander
