  • Aug MdTA academy

    who else here is processing for this class? I mainly started this to track when people receive their letters.

    I'm thinking about going to MD and applying for the MDTA, would you mind telling me about this agency? What are their main responsibilities? Do they take out of state applicants?

      There are several threads about MdTA in the MD section. You may want to do some searchs and you should find a lot of information. If you have any specific questions let me know.

      Basically they are the agency thats responsible for the tunnels, airport, port, and a few bridges. They do accept out of state applicants.

      Any other questions?

          not sure what the NY port authority does. MdTA Police basically provide service and safety to people traveling via Marylands vital sources (para-phrased from the Chief's mission statemen). also patrol the port of bmore and the world trade center. they contract i95 to MSP, but it has been RUMORED for a while that MdTA may take i95 back. 2nd largest state agency in MD, 7th largest agency in the state, and the only nationally acredited agency in the state.

            Yes. The MdTA Police patrol Maryland's Bridge and Tunnel Thruways, the Ports of Baltimore, and Baltimore/Washington International Airport. Over 500 uniformed members with numerous specialized units, including HEAT, Marine, CRU, DRE, Motors, CVSU, etc.

              Nationally Accredited by who? I believe there are others in the state who are recognized by CALEA..

                Our police force is the only nationally accredited, statewide law enforcement agency in Maryland. It is comprised of over 450 sworn officers and more than 100 civilian employees. We are the second largest State law enforcement agency and the seventh largest law enforcement agency in the State of Maryland.


                unless i am reading that wrong.

                  They are the only statewide agency that is accredited, but not the only accredited agency in the state. There are a bunch of other accredited agencies in MD.

                            I heard a rumor somewhere that the academy was cut in half due to the good ole govenor. Anyone know or hear the same thing? It's something that wouldn't suprise me that's for sure.
