MPD Officer Arrested and Charged with Pandering of a Minor [procuring a person to be used for prostitution], Another Officer Charged with Producing Child Pornography found Dead

From MPD:

“The Metropolitan Police Department has announced the arrest of an officer on pandering charges. On Tuesday, December 10, 2013, the Youth Investigations Division obtained an arrest warrant for Officer Linwood Barnhill, Jr. charging him with two counts of Pandering of a Minor. On Wednesday, December 11, 2013 he was arrested in Southeast, DC by members of the Capital Area Regional Fugitive Task Force.

Officer Barnhill, Jr. joined the Metropolitan Police Department in 1989 and has been placed on Administrative Leave. Officer Barnhill has not been on full duty since September 2012.

“As disheartening as it is to have members of this department involved in this type of conduct, I take solace in knowing that it was members of this department who worked tirelessly to ensure that they were brought to justice,” said Police Chief Cathy L. Lanier.”

Last week learned that another MPD Officer was charged with production of child pornography.
