All new MWAA Police officers are assigned to the Patrol Division at either our Reagan National Command or Dulles Command. Our officers serve as the primary law enforcement responders to calls for service at Reagan National and Dulles International Airports.
Officers are certified and sworn in the the Commonwealth of Virginia and enforce local Airports Authority Regulations, County Codes in three separate jurisdictions and the laws of the State. Our jurisdiction includes the Airport terminals, Airport property and roadways which includes the miles of highway that comprise the Dulles Toll Road and Dulles Access Highway.
While many officers choose to remain in patrol, others develop their skills and increase their knowledge while in the Patrol Division to apply for transfer to specialized divisions after a few years in the field.
