    Iíd suggest contacting Charles Allenís office and asking for assistance with the police. Charles is the Ward 6 council member where you and your girlfriend were assaulted and has been a great pedestrian and cycling advocate.

    He co-chaired an oversight committee hearing on DCís lack of progress on Vision Zero and is currently on fire about it.

    After 6 months, the assigned officer responded to one of my monthly emails requesting an update. This is the first contact I received aside from the form letter requesting a statement. He responded to say that hit-and-run investigations have been transferred by DC Council away from sworn police officers to civilian personnel.

    Yesterday, I spoke with a woman in the office now handling the investigation. Disappointingly, it appears that no investigation occurred over the last 6 months. Additionally, since the officer that responded failed to enter the license plate in his report, it sounds like no action has been taken to contact the owner of the car. She said she would follow up with the previously assigned officer, and listen to the audio from the officer that responded to the scene, to try to figure out why more wasn't done. She promised to call me back in a few days.

    I emailed Councilmember Allen in October, but I never received a response. I will try contacting his office again to voice my concerns.
