Program Description

  Field Services

The mission of the Field Services Bureau (FSB) is to provide specialized police services in support of other divisions within the police department and the residents of Montgomery County. These services are coordinated through the Special Operations Division (SOD), Traffic Division (TD), and the Security Services Division (SSD).

FSB accomplishes its purpose by partnering with other divisions and the community to enhance and further the overall mission of the Montgomery County Police Department. This is accomplished through:

  • Traffic safety education, engineering, and enforcement which addresses both vehicle and pedestrian safety.
  • Safety and security of County employees, visitors, facilities, and property utilizing physical security measures, policies that incorporate the industry's best practices, and education.
  • Participating in community engagement activities designed to educate, build trust, and sustain relationships with those we serve.
  • The use of units that have specialized equipment and/or training that enables them to provide unique support and functions to the department and community.
