about Pentagon in the Encyclopedia of Law Enforcement:

Located in Washington, D.C., the Pentagon is the headquarters of the Department of Defense (DoD) and is one of the world's largest office buildings. Renowned as a national monument and architectural marvel, the building was constructed in 16 months beginning on September 11, 1941, and was completed on January 15, 1943. The cost of the building was about $40 million and the project's total cost was almost $83 million. About 23,000 employees, both military and civilian, work in the Pentagon, including the more than 500 officers of the Pentagon Police Department (PPD; whose formal name is the Pentagon Force Protection Agency). The mission of the PPD is to promote a high level of law enforcement and security services to provide a safe and orderly work environment for the Department of Defense community located within the Pentagon and in the larger National Capitol Region.
