The Maryland-National Capital Park Police (MNCPP) is the law enforcement branch of the Maryland-National Capital Park and Planning Commission (MNCPPC) and has two divisions, one in Prince George's County and one in Montgomery County. The MNCPP is also known as "Maryland Park Police" or "Maryland Park."
The Maryland Park Police was created by the MNCPPC in 1954 by legislation to patrol and police all of the designated parks in Prince George's and Montgomery counties. For the first two years of its existence, Maryland Park officers had only a single car to share and had to use it until it broke down.
The MNCPP is a full-service, bi-county agency charged with investigating crimes and traffic infractions committed within MNCPPC jurisdiction.
- The MNCPP (Montgomery County Division) has an authorized strength of 95 sworn officers and 21 civilian personnel. They patrol over 32000 acres in Montgomery County.
- The MNCPP (Prince George's County Division) has an authorized strength of 102 sworn officers and 25 civilian personnel. They patrol over 23000 acres in Prince George's County.
