Very good. Demeanor very calm and welcoming (not intimidating). Process [was] clear and focused. Very helpful. –District of Columbia Citizen

The mediation process went very well. I thought that it would be more hostile, however everyone was professional. –MPD Officer

I thought it was helpful. Sometimes it is just good to clear the air with the other side. I can now see a bit more from the other side's perspective. –MPD Officer
