Chief's Message:


On behalf of the men and women of the Lake Dallas Police Department, I welcome you to our website.  Our website is one of the places that we communicate with the citizens and a place that you can find additional information about the Lake Dallas Police Department.

The mission of the Lake Dallas Police Department is to serve our citizens and protect the public by providing the highest quality of police services with the understanding that we must be accountable, transparent, and responsible in our actions and policies.  Our goal is to build on the great relationships our officers have made in the community and always be working to preserve and enhance the public trust placed in our officers and civilian employees.  In addition to our community engagement, the Lake Dallas Police Department also relies on detailed crime analysis to determine how to best allocate our resources.

Our website, our social media, and our community engagement will be some of the ways that the Lake Dallas Police Department will be communicating directly with the public.  Effective policing takes a cooperative effort from both the police department and the community based on trust and mutual respect.  We will be working every day to achieve this goal.  We welcome your feedback because your thoughts and observations are very important to us.
