Policies + Procedures

Policies + Procedures

The Seat Pleasant Police Department, in compliance with Maryland HB 1016, has posted here its General Order Manual which we have adopted from the Prince George’s County Police Department. This document, as its title states, is general and fluid, so that it provides discretion according to the many varied situations encountered by police personnel, yet the ability to change with the laws of the land. We also have (redacted) removed those details that may compromise citizens and officers safety, as well as compromise tactical advantage, that would greatly reduce the SPPD’s ability to meet its obligations to reduce crime.

Emergency Preparedness

The preservation of life, property, and the environment is an inherent responsibility of local, state, and federal government. As part of the Prince George’s County Operational Area, The City of Seat Pleasant has adopted the County’s comprehensive Emergency Operations Plan which will guide our response during emergencies.
