The Regional Police Field Commanders Forum

The Regional Police Field Commanders Forum is a program designed to serve the unique educational, and leadership needs of precinct and district commanders serving the largest police agencies in the Washington-Baltimore Metropolitan Area. The goal of the program is improved quality and consistency in the delivery of police services to all people within the greater Metropolitan Area. Sponsored by the Johns Hopkins University Division of Public Safety Leadership, the Forum is a partnership between area police and sheriffs' departments, businesses, and nonprofit organizations.

The Field Commanders Forum provides opportunities for education, information sharing, problem identification and problem-solving, and professional support to a cohort group of precinct and district commanders. There are 35 precinct and district commanders in the program. The group meets on a bi-monthly basis. Most of the participants hold the senior rank of captain and major.

The Regional Police Field Commanders Forum is "issues-driven." The Forum moves quickly to address pressing concerns of its members by bringing them together along with subject-area authorities. The Field Commanders Forum is among the first programs of its type in the nation. The JHU model has been replicated in metropolitan areas throughout the United States.
