Maryland Police and Correctional Training Commissions


To provide evidence based learning experiences to enhance the delivery of services to the Department and to ensure the safety of employees, offenders, and the community.


Leaders in the field of community corrections, the Employee Development and Training Unit provide a comprehensive system of professional development and training for Department employees. The unit collaborates with subject matter experts, community leaders, and service providers to promote professional excellence and outcome oriented results.

The programs through the Parole and Probation Unit focuses on training for employees dealing with community corrections and offender supervision and management. In addition, many courses are offered yearly for support services that include computer skills and other job related topics.

The Unit recently completed training new Parole and Probation Agents and soon plans to start another Academy class. Along with the Agent Academy, the Drinking Driver Monitor Program will also have an Academy and both will graduate in November. We continue to make improvements to the programs to better prepare new employees for the field. The support from DPP Leadership and the energy of the Training Unit make the training run effectively.

For more information, contact Andrea King-Wessels, Parole and Probation Administrator, at 410-875-3435.
