Metropolitan Police Headquarters

The Metropolitan Police Headquarters is at 300 Indiana Avenue, NW. The building is a seven-story stone building with steel doors. It was designed with classical and art-deco elements, in 1941 by architect Nathan Wyeth, who was the D.C. municipal architect from 1934 to 1946.
The building was re-named the Henry J. Daly Building for a veteran police officer. Daly, along with two FBI agents, was shot and killed in the building by an armed intruder in 1994.
