Hawk One in the news again
More trouble with Hawk One, the new DCPS security contractor. Over the weekend Hawk One employee Xavier Brooks -- a security officer at the D.C. Department of Human Services -- used his job issued .38 to rob two people on the 2800-block of Dumbarton Street in Northwest. As bad as that was subsequent investigation has uncovered that Brooks was the subject of an outstanding warrant on a domestic abuse charge. Hawk One claims that the Metropolitan Police never alerted the company to Brooks history, but concedes that it never conducted its own background check.
