Permitting, Inspections and Enforcement

Welcome to the Department of Permits, Inspections and Enforcement (DPIE). On July 1, 2013, Prince George’s County officially opened its newest department, the Department of Permitting, Inspections and Enforcement (DPIE). This 280-person agency combines under one roof the staff and functions that support the authorization and regulation of building, site/road, and utility permits and building licenses which drive the local economy and ensure the health and safety of County residents, businesses and visitors.

DPIE consolidates at a single location the various functions associated with the County’s regulation and approval of economic development and redevelopment projects within the County and positions the County as a national model for permit processing, inspections, code enforcement, business licensing and environmental stewardship.
