Welcome to the Department of Permitting, Inspections and Enforcement (DPIE)!

This department consolidates into one location the various functions associated with the regulation and approval of economic development and redevelopment projects within Prince George’s County. These functions include the authorization and regulation of building, site/road and utility permits, as well as business licensing, all of which help to drive the local economy and ensure the health and safety of County residents, businesses, investors and visitors. As part of this process, DPIE provides inspection oversight of construction, development and grading activities for residential and commercial construction and renovations to verify Code compliance. In addition, DPIE is charged with the enforcement of County codes that address property standards to ensure that Prince George’s County’s many diverse communities are aesthetically maintained for the benefit of all.
