Thank you for taking the time to look at our website! In June of 2018, my department achieved Texas Law Enforcement Best Practices Recognition status. We are now one of the 146 Texas law enforcement agencies out 2,400 who are recognized utilizing the best practices program. This program took almost two years to complete and resulted in a total review and re-write of our policies and procedures.
In 2018, Horizon City became a proud D.A.R.E. community! We are in the process of developing a vibrant anti-drug message that will be delivered in our schools. Stay tuned!
Our police department has 23 full-time sworn police officers with up to 15 police reserve officers. We currently offer 24/7 dispatching services from within the police department with 17 full time licensed Telecommunicators. There are many resources available here to assist you in interacting with our department. I hope you will take the time to review our public resources. Don’t forget we also have an active Facebook page where you can be kept up to date on any new programs or information.
