First District Metropolitan Police in DC

At the heart of the city, the First District encompasses DC’s business and political center and contains some of the country’s most cherished institutions, such as the US Supreme Court, Capitol Hill, and the White House. The First District is divided operationally into east and west. The First District Station serves the western part of the district. Some of the city’s most interesting and diverse neighborhoods are found in the First District. This area includes the US Capitol; the White House; Federal Triangle; and the downtown business district, including the Convention Center and the Verizon Center. The majority of residents live in the southwest quadrant, near the waterfront, but the resident population is surging in several of downtown’s animated, diverse communities, such as Chinatown and Penn Quarter.

The First District Substation serves the eastern part of the district. This area includes the National Mall, the US Supreme Court, the Library of Congress, Union Station, Eastern Market, the Atlas District, the Washington Navy Yard, and the historic Capitol Hill neighborhood.
