Isaac Fulwood Jr. (Metropolitan Police Department) 

Former DC Chief of Police Isaac Fulwood Jr. has passed away at the age of 77, the Metropolitan Police Department confirmed late Friday.

Fulwood, a native Washingtonian, joined the MPD in 1964 and served as police chief from July 1989 to September 1992.

When Fulwood was chief, he led the department during a tumultuous time in D.C. history—during the city's crack cocaine epidemic, when Mayor Marion Barry was arrested for possession of crack cocaine and when a riot erupted in Mount Pleasant.

Police Chief Peter Newsham shared his condolences to the family and friends of Chief Fulwood following the announcement of his passing.
