Introduction:
Expedited Bill 4-13, Police Department - Organization and
Functions Assistant Chief of Police
Expedited Bill 4-13, Police Department - Organization and Functions Assistant Chief
of Police, sponsored by the Council President at the request of the County Executive, is
scheduled to be introduced on February 5. A Public Safety Committee worksession is tentatively
scheduled for February 7 and a public hearing is tentatively scheduled for February 12.
Background
Bill 4-13 would amend the number of Assistant Chiefs of Police from three to four and
establish County Security as a Division of the Police Department. The Assistant Chief of Police
position was created in 2000 by Emergency Bill 2-00, Police Department - Reorganization. Bill
2-00 created 3 Assistant Chief of Police positions and abolished the positions of Police
Lieutenant Colonel and Police Major.
County Code §2-43 designates each Assistant Chief of Police position as non-merit.
County Code
§
lA-l 04(b )(2) requires each position designated in law as a non-merit position to
have a position description established by regulation under method
(1).
Executive Regulation
26-12AM would establish a position description for Assistant Chief of Police.
As described in the Executive's Transmittal memorandum dated January 16, 2013 (©5­
6), the fourth Assistant Chief would manage a new Patrol Services Bureau (uniformed first
responders) created by dividing the current Field Services Bureau into 2 separate Bureaus. The
current Field Services Bureau houses 1,184 employees or approximately 63% of the Department.
The current organization chart for the Department is at ©13. The new Patrol Services Bureau
would include 893 employees and the Field Services Bureau would include 372 employees. The
proposed new Field Services Bureau together with the proposed new Patrol Services Bureau
would include 1265 employees because the Security Division that is currently part of the
Management Services Bureau would be moved to the new Field Services Bureau. The proposed
new Department organization chart with a fourth Assistant Chief is at © 11. The proposed new
organization chart showing the number of employees in each Bureau is at ©12.

Fiscal Impact
OMB estimates the cost of adding a fourth Assistant Chief to be approximately $37,000,
based upon the difference in salary between the Assistant Chief and a vacant Police Lieutenant
position that would be abolished. See ©7-1O. The Department plans to absorb this annual
recurring cost through its existing bUdget.
Division of Security
The County Division of Security currently reports to the Assistant Chief for Management
Services. The Bill would codify the existing inclusion of the Division of County Security into
the Police Department. Under the new proposed organization for the Department, the Division
of County Security would become part of the Field Services Bureau and report to the Assistant
Chief for Field Services.
The Purpose of Adding a Fourth Assistant Chief
As explained in the Executive's transmittal memorandum, the Police Department has
grown significantly since 1990, but the upper management team has not. The fourth Assistant
Chief would reduce the number of employees in the largest Bureau from 1184 to 893.
It
would
also reduce the number of direct reports to the Assistant Chief for Field Services from 14 to 5.
The Assistant Chief for Patrol Services would have 8 direct reports. A list of the direct reports to
the Chief and to each Assistant Chief under the proposed new organization is at © 14. The goal
is to create "a more focused and efficient police force."
Proposed Executive Regulation 26-12AM
County Code §lA-l 04(b )(2) requires the adoption of an Executive Regulation
establishing a position description for each new non-merit position. Proposed ER 26-12AM
would create a position description for the Assistant Chief of Police. The regulation was
advertised in the December issue of the Montgomery County Register with a 30-day comment
deadline. No comments were received.

LEGISLATIVE REQUEST REPORT
Expedited Bill 4-13
Police Department
-
Organization and Functions
-
Assistant ChiefofPolice
I.
Description: This Bill revises Chapter 2, Section 2-43, to allow for four Assistant
Chiefs of Police, amending the current language which allows for three.
II.
Problem: The Field Services Bureau (FSB) of the police department has become
almost as large of the entire department was in 1990. A bureau of this size exceeds
the acceptable limit of supervision for an upper-level management team within a
single bureau. The police department currently has 1,150 officers and over 700
civilian positions (1,862 total). The majority of these positions are assigned to the
Field Services Bureau (approximately 1, 184 positions) and many of the divisions
within the bureau have competing interests or demands for scheduling and/or funding.
III.
Goals and Obj ectives: Amending the Code to allow for four Assistant Chief's of
Police to better allow the Department of Police to operate more efficiently. As a
result of the above listed problem there is an operational need to balance the
supervision of the department by creating a fourth bureau. This fourth bureau will
create a focus on the primary first-responder role of the department and will be titled
the Patrol Services Bureau (PSB). The PSB will be comprised of all six district
stations, both Duty Commanders (Captains overseeing patrol operations during
midnight hours) and the Traffic Division. The creation of this bureau allows for more
effective operations of our most visible asset within the police department. Divisions
that support the PSB will remain under the FSB.
IV.
Coordination: Office of the County Attorney and the Department of Police.
V.
Fiscal Impact: Office of Management and Budget.
VI.
Economic Impact: Office of Management and Budget.
VII.
Evaluation of the Results of the Proposed Law: Subject to the general oversight of the
County Executive and the County Council. The Office of the County Attorney will
evaluate for form and legality.

SUBJECT:
Proposed Legislation: Fourth Assistant Chief Position within MCPD
I am transmitting for Council introduction a bill creating a fourth Assistant
Chiefs position within the Montgomery County Police Department (MCPD). This position is
intended to improve the efficiency and effectiveness of the Department. I am also transmitting a
Legislative Request Report, Executive Regulation, Fiscal Impact Statement, Economic Impact
Statement, and proposed Executive Regulation which establishes a position description. This
Executive Regulation will be formally submitted to Council for approval in a separate package.
This bill introduces a fourth Assistant Chiefs position for the purpose of
reorganizing the police department to create a more manageable and effective organization.
Additionally, the reorganization will reduce the number of "direct reports" for the Chief of
Police from eight to five employees. The bill, in essence, creates a new bureau which is the face
of the police department: the Patrol Services Bureau (uniformed first responders).
The MCPD is a very lean and very flat organization. The expansion of the
Department requires new facilities, new staff and a new structure to receive the appropriate level
of oversight and advocacy. This is not occurring as efficiently as it could, given the
Department's organizational structure. With the retirement of Assistant Chief Wayne Jerman,
the time is right to add a fourth bureau, better aligning functions and responsibilities. :me new
organizational structure of the Department will also increase accountability and provide
increased oversight.
Over the course of the past 25 years, MCPD has experienced significant growth.
The size of its upper level management team, however, has remained relatively small.
In
1990,
the upper level management team of the Department consisted of a Chief of Police, a Deputy
Chief of Police, and three executive officers at the rank of Major. Each executive at the rank of
Major was in charge of a bureau. Today, this same team consists of the Chief of Police and three
Assistant Chiefs (there is no longer a Deputy Chief position). Additionally, the patroVfirst
responder position remains the priority of the police department and has grown the most. As a

result, the Field Services Bureau (FSB) has become very large and the Assistant Chief assigned
to that bureau has 14 direct reports. \Vhile there was a commonality to the units assigned within
FSB, the sheer size of the bureau (1,184 total employees; approximately 63% of the Department)
is a hindrance to effective management practices. Through the creation of a fourth bureau and a
reassignment of some divisions, an equitable allotment of personnel and responsibilities will
exist for each Assistant Chief. The end result is a more focused and efficient police force.
Although there are both an Economic Impact Statement and a Fiscal Impact
Statement included in this package, it is important to note that the creation of a fourth Assistant
Chief does not include any request for funding. The Department will absorb, through its existing
budget, the additional $37,000 in cost attributed to this position. This cost is created by
upgrading an existing (vacant) Lieutenant's position to that of an Assistant Chief. Thus, there is
no increase in the overall number ofmanagement positions.
I have attached a "Proposed Organization Chart" which depicts the makeup of the
police department if the Council were to approve this bill. As the Council works through this
legislation, executive staff is available to provide any information or assistance you may require.

Position). Using the average compensation cost for existing Assistant Chief of Police
positions and existing Lieutenant positions, the additional cost would be $37,768. There
is no fiscal impact from recognizing the movement of County Security to the Police
