Dallas ISD Police Department
"Our Youth. Our Community. Our Commitment."
The Dallas ISD Police Department protects and serves more than 158,000 students, and 21,000 staff members in 228 schools and numerous administrative and service buildings. The department employs more than 200 police officers, security officers, and administrative staff.
The department proudly serves a jurisdiction of 384 square miles, including Dallas County cities of Addison, Balch Springs, Carrollton, Mesquite, Seagoville, Wilmer, Combine, DeSoto, Duncanville, Farmers Branch, Garland, Highland Park, Lancaster, and University Park.
Dallas ISD Police Department had its inception as a police department in 2003. Before then, the department primarily consisted of non-sworn security officers assigned to schools. Since the transition to a police department, Dallas ISD PD has grown significantly and expanded its scope of service to include 24/7 police patrol division, criminal investigations, forensics, gang unit, crime stoppers, youth and community outreach. We are partnering with sister city law enforcement agencies to be the premier school law enforcement agency in Texas.
Dallas ISD Police Department is a fully functional law enforcement agency. It operates 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. We strive each day to accomplish our strategic goals and ensure that our campuses and community are safe.
The Command Staff oversees the smooth operation of all facets of the department.
Safer Schools, Safer Economy, Safer Dallas!
