Safety Reminders from Councilmember Searcy for Inauguration Day


Dear Takoma Park Residents,

Following the Capitol insurrection on January 6 and on the eve of the Presidential Inauguration, I want to thank our Takoma Park Police Department, communications staff, emergency manager, and other City staff for working tirelessly to ensure the safety of our residents during this unprecedented time.  In preparation for the Presidential Inauguration, we have a few reminders for everyone:

  • Please avoid downtown Washington, D.C. on Wednesday, January 20.  
  • The Takoma Park Police are in an all hands on deck schedule. Therefore, you might see more police in the City than normal. 
  • Due to COVID-19 and increased security in the area, try enjoying Inauguration events from home. 

As always, if you see something of concern, please call our Takoma Park Police Department at 301-270-1100 or call 911 if it’s an emergency. 

Stay calm and stay safe!
