Division of Police


It is the mission of the NIH Division of Police to protect our country's national treasure: Scientific Research and the NIH research community, and further to ensure that the mission of NIH is not impeded by personal attacks, loss of assets, criminal activity or acts of terrorism.


The vision of the Division of Police is to provide our services in the most professional and least intrusive manner through the application and use of state of the art methods and technology. We are making continuous improvements to our operations and procedures to ensure that this vision will be realized and we have solicited the assistance of ORS and NIH Senior management, other Agencies, consultants, as well as our own employees, to accomplish the needed tasks.

Value Proposition:

The NIH Division of Police brings value to the NIH community by ensuring the safety and security of employees, visitors, patients, and contractors and the protection of NIH's research and knowledge assets. The officers and employees of the Division of Police attempt to meet this responsibility in the least invasive manner at a reasonable cost to the Agency.

Strategic Plan:

The purpose of the strategic plan is to provide a formal guide for the NIH Division of Police (DP). This plan is designed to provide our stakeholders with an articulation of our vision of the future for the Division, and to clarify our direction for our employees, partners, and contractors.
