Commander's Welcome - Southwest Patrol Division



I would like to take this opportunity to welcome you to the Southwest Patrol Division's website. Whether you are a resident, business owner or a person interested in law enforcement, we hope you will find the information on our website helpful.  I am honored and privileged to lead the hardworking men and women who make up the Southwest Patrol Division. In my opinion, the men and women of the Southwest Patrol Division are the people who make this organization one of the most respected law enforcement agencies in the country.  The Southwest Patrol Division's officers are committed to providing the best possible police service. Our mission is to protect and serve our community.

Our collaboration with the community plays a critical role in making the Southwest area of Dallas a safer place to live.  We serve a diverse community and are intentional about listening to everyone in our community.  Please do not hesitate to let us know when we have met this challenge or where we may have fallen short in your eyes.  I'm dedicated to holding everyone accountable.   I value open and honest dialogue with the community and want to work with everyone to improve the high quality of life that makes Southwest Dallas a unique area to live, visit, and work.
