    D.C. Police Chief Cathy Lanier said her agency is the "most transparent police department" in the country.

    Speaking on TBD TV's NewsTalk show on Tuesday, Lanier said the Metropolitan Police Department passed a recent FBI audit of the department's crime statistics "with flying colors."

    Lanier said her department offers more information and detailed statistics than any other police department in the country.

    The FBI said it completed an audit of the department's crime data earlier this month. The review is available to agencies on a voluntary basis to ensure that they adhere to reporting methods consistent with the FBI's annual Uniform Crime Reporting program standards.

    FBI officials said they don't disclose the results of the audit.
