Penn Quarter Neighborhood Association
Inaugural Parade Security Briefing with Secret Service and Metropolitan Police Dept. Representatives

Monday, December 15th

Navy Memorial Heritage Center
701 Pennsylvania Avenue, NW
Washington, DC

The Navy Memorial Heritage Center is accessible directly from the Navy Memorial/Market Square Park at the southwestern corner of the building (by the plot of grass)

**This is a must attend if you are planning an event anywhere near Penn Quarter during inauguration week**

Special Agents Carlos Castro and Mindy O'Donnell of the Secret Service and Lt. Stuart Emerman of the Metropolitan Police Department's Special Operations Division will brief those attending on the impact security provisions will have on Penn Quarter prior to, during, and after the Inaugural Parade down Pennsylvania Avenue. They will tell us what limitations and restrictions to anticipate within blocks of The Avenue and how security will affect Penn Quarter's inhabitants and those catering as well as those attending parties at homes and offices facing The Avenue.

This will be an excellent opportunity to ask Special Agents Castro and O'Donnell and
Lt. Emerman, all of who have been involved with security planning for the Inaugural Parade, questions on what will and what will not be permitted.
