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.
