The MPD Academy is not residential; however, recruit officers may live at a temporary residential housing facility, while transitioning to Washington D.C. Additionally, the MPD Recruit Rental Assistance Program is designed to assist new police officers in their transition to working and living in the communities they serve in Washington, D.C. Eligible MPD recruits who sign up between October 2017 and March 2018 will receive rental assistance of $1,000 per month for six months, for properties in DC.
