IG: security lax at District-owned buildings

By Washington Post editors

A new report by the District's inspector general is ripping the police force tasked with securing city government buildings, including the John A. Wilson Building that houses the offices of the mayor and D.C. Council, the Washington Examiner reports.

The Protective Services Police Department hasn't properly trained and equipped its officers, who often haven't been sufficiently vetted and sometimes go unpunished for breaking rules, according to the IG's report.

But the Department of Real Estate Services, which oversees the Protective Services Police Department (PSPD), said many of the problems laid out in the IG's investigation "have already been resolved." The yearlong IG investigation finished last June but the report wasn't made public until last month.

Security is a goal that's impossible to obtain.
