Language Services Stipend

Pursuant to Special Order 99-16 (Language Services Stipend), the MPD recognizes that in serving a diverse population, the use of a second language may be of benefit in providing quality service to all that live, work and reside in the District of Columbia.  As such, the MPD has a Language Skills Stipend Program that awards employees in qualifying situations where the use of a second language enhances the performance of their normal duties. The Language Services Stipend may be earned by sworn members while they are in the police academy.

If you are interested in participating in the Language Services Stipend Program, please email the Department's Language Access Coordinator.  If you have any questions, please contact Mr. Enrique Rivera at (202) 576-3247 or [email protected].
