    Previously Certified in another State

    If you were previously certified in another state you must provide the following documentation at the time of application:

    • Certificate of completion from a state accredited police academy

    • Detailed course syllabus of your entry level training with an hourly breakdown of course content. (Note: in-service training courses or any supplemental training hours need not be submitted)

    Once received, the documentation will be submitted to the MPCTC for review and approval. This is done on a case-by-case basis and the applicant is responsible for supplying the documentation.

    • If approved for initial certification with the MPCTC the applicant would still be required to complete a five week "Comparative Compliance" course which includes law updates indigenous to the State of Maryland.

    Certified or Previously Certified with a Federal Law Enforcement Agency

    • In most circumstances applicants that attended a federal law enforcement academy that was less than 5-6 months in duration are not eligible. For example, an 8-10 week basic academy at the Federal Law Enforcement Training Center (FLETC) would fall short of state minimums and the applicant would not be considered for lateral hire status.

    • If the applicant has completed an extended comprehensive academy at FLETC (i.e. United States Secret Service, US Customs, US Capitol Police) they may be eligible for lateral hire status.

    • The applicant is responsible for submitting proof of attendance in the form of a certificate of successful completion and a detailed course syllabus of the academy course curriculum. This will be submitted to the MPCTC for approval for initial certification. If approved, the applicant would be required to complete a five week "Comparative Compliance" course to qualify for initial certification.

    You are NOT eligible for lateral hire status if:

    • You are a Correctional Officer who has not completed a full Police Academy. (Correctional Academy Training is not sufficient).

    • You hold a "Special Police" commission.

    • You hold a "Private Investigators" license

    • You were a Military Police Officer

    • You were or are a Reserve Officer or Reserve Sheriff's Deputy
