LeDroit Park neighbor Martha Jenkins has organized a 5K team, “On the Lam” to run at the Annual National Law Enforcement Ride and Run. The race will take place on October 14th at 8:00 am beginning and ending at the National Law Enforcement and Officer Memorial located on E Street between 4th & 5th Streets, NW. We will be running (or walking) to remember 3D Ofc. Oscar Pedrozo who recently passed away on August 25th. Anyone who frequented U street corridor and 14th street will remember Ofc. Pedrozo on his segway. I miss joking with him and knowing that he was just around the corner if I needed him. Please read about his life and his heroic policing in 3D in an article published in the Post today, “Family grieves for Officer Oscar Pedrozo.”
Please join “On the Lam,” here or feel free to donate to the NLEOMF. If you have any further questions about how to donate directly to Ofc. Pedrozo’s family please contact Commander Jacob Kishter in 3D at Jacob.Kishter@dc.gov and he will direct you to the appropriate MPD representative.
