D.C. Mayor Muriel Creates Task For For Missing Girls


D.C. Mayor Muriel E. Bowser announced on Friday that the city will dedicate more resources including a task force to help find missing youth in the District.

According to The Washington Post, Bowser will increase the number of police officers assigned to find missing children and establish a task force to determine what social services teenagers who run away need to stabilize their home lives.

The city would also allocate more money to nonprofit organizations that work with vulnerable teenagers. Her office said the goal is to ensure that city agencies work together to protect children and that the onus doesn’t fall entirely on the police department.
