Over the last year, a national conversation about policing has been occurring. Our community is having the same conversation, both formally and informally. The Police Department is actively engaged with community leaders and interest groups who have spearheaded dialogue around this issue.

During community meetings, we notice that we are asked many of the same questions about the Department. Below you will find guides that seek to answer many of these frequently asked questions.

Whether these questions are asked at your dinner table or during a public event, we hope that you will find these guides helpful and enlightening as we work together to ensure that the community’s needs are served.

The Montgomery County Police Department (MCPD) is committed to constitutional policing that is both fair and transparent.  If you have questions not included in these guides, you are encouraged to reach out to your local police district.
