The Takoma Park Police Department (TPPD) is the primary law enforcement agency servicing a population of 17,229 within 2.1 square miles of the municipality of Takoma Park, Maryland. Until July 1, 1997, the TPPD was aided by both the Prince George's County Police and the Montgomery County Police as the city was divided within the the two counties. After that date, the municipality was moved to become contained entirely within Montgomery County by a move of the Maryland General Assembly.[1]


The current Chief of Police is Ronald Ricucci. The TPPD is a full-service[2] agency consisting of 36 sworn officers (not including the chief), 8 dispatchers, and a support staff of 17 civilians.[3] The TPPD is divided into three divisions:[4]

  • Patrol Division
  • Support Services Division
  • Administration Division
