Equity, Diversity & Inclusion

Equity, diversity, and inclusion are essential to law enforcement operations and effectiveness. From the global nature of threats to strengthening community relations, there is a heightened need for our employees to respond to emergencies with professionalism, pride, and effectiveness. Through diversity management, the United States Capitol Police (USCP) leverages the unique skills, talents, and expertise that we bring to the USCP through our different backgrounds, experiences, demographics, and perspectives. By embracing these differences, the USCP is keenly positioned to recruit, retain, and promote the best and the brightest.

As the equity, diversity, and inclusion vision for the United States Capitol Police further develops, the following services will be provided in a concerted effort to leverage the skills, abilities, and talents of the USCP workforce:

  • Training 
  • Professional Development
  • Mentoring and Coaching
  • Employee Resource Groups
  • Speaker Series
  • Policy Review

The Department welcomes the diverse insights of our employees in how best to promote a successful workforce and the fulfillment of our critical mission.
