The Professional Development Bureau’s priorities are to ensure the Department hires the best applicants, provides them with the finest training and growth throughout their career, and to deliver quality customer service from Human Resources. The Professional Development Bureau includes the following divisions:
  • Applicant Investigation Division

  • Metropolitan Police Academy Division

  • Curriculum Development and Instructional Design Division

  • Human Resource management Division

  • Disciplinary Review Division

  • Medical Services Division
