Baltimore Police Department Criminal Justice Development Program

How to Apply to the Leadership Development Program

The Criminal Justice Leadership Development Program is open to high-performing mid-level police officers, sergeants, lieutenants and deputy majors. The department sends out an announcement to staff, and officers have the option to apply to the program. Applicants must

  • Submit a resume and a cover letter detailing why they want to attend the leadership program.
  • Clearly discuss their goals and objectives for participating.

The deputy commissioner selects officers for the program; final approval from the commissioner is required. The overall objective is to select the officers with the greatest potential to be future leaders in the police department.
