As a Department, we are a microcosm of America, representational of many races, colors, religions, national origins, political affiliations, sexual orientations, and ages. Our workforce is comprised of employees from nearly all 50 states and the U.S. territories. We embrace and celebrate a diverse workforce, and we believe inclusion makes our workplace stronger and respecting each individual as a person and as a professional is essential.
We act on the world stage every day of the year as a model in security, urban crime prevention, dignitary protection, specialty response capabilities, and homeland security.
