San Angelo Police Department Receives “Recognized Law Enforcement Agency”
Jan 28, 2020   02:47 PM

On January 28th, 2020, the San Angelo Police Department received the award of “Recognized Law Enforcement Agency” from the Texas Police Chiefs Association Law Enforcement Recognition Program.  Begun in 2006, the Recognition Program evaluates a Police Department’s compliance with over 168 Best Business Practices for Texas Law Enforcement.  These Best Practices were carefully developed by Texas Law Enforcement professionals to assist agencies in the efficient and effective delivery of service and the protection of individual’s rights. These Best Practices cover all aspects of law enforcement operations including use of force, protection of citizen rights, vehicle pursuits, property and evidence management, and patrol and investigative operations. 

The San Angelo Police Department was originally recognized by the Texas Police Chiefs Association Law Enforcement Recognition Program in 2008.  Police agencies recognized by the TPCA must undergo an onsite inspection every 4th year, and this makes the third successful onsite inspection by the San Angelo Police Department.  

This voluntary process required the San Angelo Police Department to conduct a critical self-review of the agency’s policies, procedures, facilities, and operations.  Beginning in 2007, the department begin the lengthy process to become a “Recognized” Law Enforcement Agency” by preparing proofs of compliance for each of the Texas Law Enforcement Best Business Practices. Upon completion of the internal review, an outside audit and review was requested.  This final on-site review took place in 2008. The on-site review is conducted by trained Police Chiefs from other areas of our state.  The result of this review was then sent to the Texas Police Chiefs Association’s Recognition Committee for final analysis and decision to award “Recognized” status.  

On January 25th, 2008, the department was notified that it had been awarded the coveted “Recognized Law Enforcement Agency” award.  The San Angelo Police Department becomes the fourth agency in the state to be so recognized.  The San Angelo Police Department has always considered itself to be one of the best in the state.  This process provided for an independent review of the department’s operations and should assure the citizens of San Angelo that its Police Department is conforming to the current state of the art in law enforcement. 

More information, a description of the program may be viewed on the Texas Police Chiefs Association website at http://www.texaspolicechiefs.org.
