DPIE Public Information Office

The Public Information Office serves as the information connection for the Department of Permitting, Inspections and Enforcement (DPIE) to both the news media and to Prince George's County citizens and residents. We work to keep you informed about the services and programs available to you and maintain relationships with community associations, businesses and residents. We also provide departmental emergency communications, facilitate customer service complaint resolution and oversee Maryland Public Information Act (MPIA) requests sent to DPIE.

In an effort to supply you with current information, we provide a monthly departmental newsletter, Under Construction. You will not want to miss a single issue!  You may sign-up for your eNews at Subscribe My PGC.

For information about MPIA requests, visit our MPIA Processing at DPIE web page.

For updates on COVID data, assistance, openings and closures, vaccinations, and other information, visit the County's Environmental Health's Disease Control page on Coronavirus (COVID-19).


Third-Thursday Community Information Session May 2022 - Verify Before You Buy FLYER

Considering buying a house or other property? 

Let DPIE help you avoid problems!

Before you buy a property, there are certain things you should know. Is there unpermitted construction there? Is it located in a flood-prone area? What commercial projects are set for construction nearby? Experts from the County Department of Permitting, Inspections and Enforcement (DPIE) will teach you to research these questions and more at a seminar on May 19  called “Verify Before You Buy.” Register for the May 19 seminar or submit questions at dpiepio@co.pg.md.us. Call 301-636-2053 for more information.
