On December 9, at the Kerrville City Council Meeting the Kerrville Police Department was awarded a certificate of Recognition from the Texas Police Chiefs Association Foundation. Max Westbrook, Program Director for the Texas Law Enforcement Best Practices Recognition Program was on hand to award the Certificate.
Being “Recognized” means that the agency has proven that it meets or exceeds all of the identified Best Practices for Texas Law Enforcement. These Best Practices cover aspects of law enforcement operations such as use of force, protection of citizen rights, pursuits, property and evidence management, and patrol and investigative operations.
“The Police Department first received Recognition in 2011 and has since continued to remain in compliance thanks to the leadership and organization of Assistant Chief David Knight, Lt. Curtis Thomason, Lt. Phil Engstrom and Lt. Mary Krebs”, said Chief John Young.
The Kerrville Police Department is one (1) of one-hundred and seven (107) agencies Recognized in the State out of more than 1,900 police departments in Texas.
