As one of the oldest federal law enforcement agencies in the
country, having been established in 1828, the United States
Capitol Police has protected the greatest symbol of democracy
for nearly 200 years. Today, USCP embodies the best in
American policing and serves as a model in security, urban
crime prevention, dignitary protection, specialty response
capabilities, and homeland security.
Our mission is to protect the Congress – its Members,
employees, visitors, and facilities – so it can fulfill its
constitutional and legislative responsibilities in a safe, secure,
and open environment.
By working at the U.S. Capitol, you will have a front seat to
major events and witness the nation’s history unfold each day.
From presidential inaugurations, to escorting international and
national leaders, to greeting and screening visitors, to
protecting First Amendment liberties – you will be a part of
the action that many others only get to see on the news.
At the USCP, you can experience all facets of law
enforcement – such as becoming as a K-9 technician, or
serving on the SWAT team, motorcycle unit, or one of the
nation’s expert bomb squads. You can travel as a special
agent while protecting Congressional dignitaries, conduct
patrols, screen visitors, investigate threats, manage a dispatch
center, and so much more – all within one law enforcement
agency. Your career choices and opportunities for growth and
advancement are extensive – and there’s no need to move
from the National Capital Region or uproot your family.
