Active Policies

The policies of the Baltimore Police Department (BPD), issued under the authority of the Police Commissioner, set forth the standards, values, and expectations of the BPD. These policies and procedures exist to maintain high levels of professional conduct and are the embodiment of the BPD's concerns for ensuring effective, safe, and constitutional law enforcement. We review evidence-based research and consult publications written by the Department of Justice, International Association of Chiefs of Police, Police Executive Research Forum, and other professional organizations to adopt policies that reflect national best practices.

Some information has been redacted from the policies because it is law enforcement sensitive. Other redactions are to ensure the safety of citizens, crime victims, and members of the Baltimore Police Department. Additional redacts shield internal telephone numbers and email addresses to ensure that confidential or privileged means of communication are not compromised.
