Swearing In



On behalf of the men and women of the Dickinson PD, I am pleased to welcome you to our website.  Our continuing goal is to make the City of Dickinson a safe place in which to live, work and play.  We are committed to maintaining and improving the quality of life of the city during this time of rapid growth, by actively partnering with community members and being innovative in our policing strategies.

We are proud to serve the residents of Dickinson in many ways.  Our Department is responsible for helping to prevent crime, patrolling neighborhoods, responding to calls for service, investigating crimes, arresting offenders and working closely with the community to identify and solve neighborhood problems.  We also provide educational and outreach programs to assist the residents and youth of our community.  Our ongoing commitment is to continue to provide the highest quality, professional, and courteous service to our community.

I would like to take this opportunity to thank all of the citizens of Dickinson for their continued support.  By working together, we will continue to preserve the quality of life that our community deserves.
