A Washington D.C. police officer has been arrested for producing child pornography while on duty.
Metropolitan Officer Marc Washington was arrested Monday night, just hours after the disturbing allegations involving a juvenile surfaced, according to police. Washington, who joined the district’s police department in 2006, was arrested by the Youth Investigations Division and the Internal Affairs Bureau and charged with Production of Child Pornography, according to the department.
Police Chief Cathy L. Lanier called the allegations against Washington “both shocking and disturbing” while thanking those who came forward to report his alleged crimes. “We invest a great amount of time and effort to ensure that we are hiring the right people and we continue to proactively monitor integrity across the department,” said Lanier in a statement released Tuesday.
“But to learn of an allegation of this kind against a person who is sworn to protect our children, it is both shocking and disturbing.
“We are fortunate that someone came forward to alert us of this behavior to ensure that we prevent future victims,” she said.
Washington was assigned to the Seventh District, in southeast Washington, at the time of his arrest.
Police are now working to determine whether there may be more victims.”
