November 13, 2017 by 11:00 pm

Job Description / Responsibilities

An Amazing Opportunity – This is truly an amazing opportunity to live and work in one of the most dynamic areas of the Metropolitan Washington Region. The Metropolitan Washington Airports Authority (MWAA) is conducting a national search for an innovative and committed law enforcement professional to serve as the next Police Chief. Ideal candidates must be hands-on with the ability to wear many hats while demonstrating strong leadership, communication, and interpersonal skills to provide innovative and dynamic approaches in emergency and public safety services. This inspiring leader will be able to make tough decisions and hold officers accountable to the highest standards of professionalism and integrity. The Police Chief will join an energized executive leadership team committed to providing excellent service to the entire MWAA and its more than 42 million annual passengers, visitors, and workforce.

The Agency – The Metropolitan Washington Airports Authority is an independent public-sector entity established by the Commonwealth of Virginia and the District of Columbia with the consent of the U.S. Congress. In 1987, Washington Dulles International and Washington National (now Reagan National) Airports were transferred to the Airports Authority under a 50-year lease authorized by the Metropolitan Washington Airports Act of 1986. Prior to the transfer, the airports were owned and operated by the Federal Aviation Administration in the U.S. Department of Transportation.

The Airports Authority has a more than $800 million operating budget with over 1,635 employees in central administration, airports management and operations, and the police and fire departments. In addition to operating the airports, the Airports Authority is responsible for capital improvements. Major renovations include the opening of Terminal B/C at Reagan National, and the Dulles Development Program, which has provided a new airport traffic control tower, expanded airline gates, a fourth runway, and the Aero Train. MWAA has a 17-member Board of Directors that establishes policy and provides direction to management. Members of the Board are appointed by the Governors of Virginia and Maryland, the Mayor of the District of Columbia, and the President of the United States as follows:

  • The Governor of Virginia appoints seven Members, subject to confirmation by the Virginia Special Assembly;
