On Wednesday, December 23, 2020 a dedication ceremony for
Gail Cobb Way at 14th and D Streets. Gail A. Cobb was the first African American female officer killed in the line of duty. On the day of her death, the 1400th block of D Street, N.E. and the 300 block of 14th Place, N.E. were lined with police cruisers as the men and women of the Metropolitan Police Department paid their respects to Officer Cobb, their fallen comrade. Officer Cobb’s death was recognized by United States President Gerald Ford, District of Columbia Mayor Walter Washington, and other local and national government officials. Officer Cobb was not only a heroine to her colleagues in the Metropolitan Police Department and to her city, but she continues to serve as a role model for young women across the country who wish to serve their communities.
