The Montgomery Department of Public Safety is the parent agency for all safety-related operations in the capital city. The department was formed in 2010 to streamline public safety services, increase efficiency, and better serve the public.

DPS initially included Fire/Rescue, Police, and Emergency Communications; in 2012, it incorporated the City/County Emergency Management Agency, as well.

Each agency is commanded by a chief or director whose work is coordinated through the leadership of the DPS director.
