According to Fox 5, the women allege they were retaliated against because they cooperated in an internal investigation against a superior. “We got pulled to get questioned and I told exactly what I’m telling you to them: ‘I was not there, however, I was invited and this is what I heard,’” former D.C. police cadet Alice McIntosh said. 

Former cadet Anari Miller said the retaliation began when should would come into her shift and felt as though she was walking on eggshells. Pregnant at the time, she didn’t eat or sleep much.

The attorney who represents the three women is also representing 10 Black women who are also suing the police department for $100 million on claims of culture of discrimination and harassment.  

D.C. Assistant Chief Chanel Dickerson spoke out at a community meeting at Unity Baptist Church Tuesday. “When I was 18 years old as a police cadet, I was told I had to have an abortion or be fired from the MPD cadet program,” she said.  

Dickerson feels the decision to have a baby was her choice and shouldn’t have been a choice made by an employer nor should she had been given an ultimatum.  

The department is currently reviewing the suits and is taking the allegations solemnly.
