Chief's Message

On behalf of our community, welcome to our website. The men and women of the Rockwall Police Department are the people who make this organization one of the most respected law enforcement agencies in the State of Texas. As Chief of Police, one of my primary roles is to continue the tradition of the department’s core value of extraordinary customer service. We are passionate about our ability to continue to excel in this most critical area of police work and we strive to provide excellent police service every day.

The Rockwall Police Department is a diverse and innovative agency. Our department is comprised of 85 sworn officers and 24 civilian employees. We are a “Recognized Agency” in the Texas Police Chiefs Association’s Best Practices Program which means our policies and procedures adhere to the highest standards in law enforcement today.

We are committed to a philosophy of public relations and enhancing the quality of life in our city. The Rockwall Police Department is focused on proactive partnerships aimed at providing the best solutions and positive outcomes for problems we face as a community. Fighting crime and providing a safe environment is our highest priority.

We are a community-oriented department, relying on cooperation with our businesses and citizens to meet our vision of, “Striving for Excellence through Community Involvement One Interaction at a Time.” We are involved in numerous community educational programs and have officers involved with students at each grade level.

The Rockwall Police Department offers an excellent opportunity for anyone interested in a career in law enforcement. We are a people-oriented agency dedicated to the job we do, the community we serve, and upholding the highest standards of law enforcement ethics and conduct.

I encourage you to learn more about your agency by following us on social media, attending our Citizens Police Academy or interacting with us at the many city events scheduled throughout the year. We look forward to the conversations.
