Message From Chief Frank Dixon
On behalf of the more than 200 men and women of the Denton Police Department, welcome to our website. The City of Denton is a vibrant and growing community, made up of a diverse population of more than 133,000 residents, and home to the University of North Texas, Texas Woman’s University, and North Central Texas College. With a rich music and arts scene, Denton is truly a gem in what is known as the “Golden Triangle” of the Dallas/Ft. Worth Metroplex. Whether you live and raise a family here, or you are visiting our city, we want your experience to be safe, fun, and memorable.
Frank Dixon, Chief of Police
It is truly my honor and privilege to lead the dedicated men and women of DPD as they deliver the highest level of professional service. To maintain a standard of excellence, we partner with our community, regional law enforcement agencies, and numerous service providers to use innovation and collaboration in providing a holistic approach to keeping you and your family safe.
We will remain vigilant while working alongside you, the community, to focus on relational-based policing. True excellence can be achieved by building upon our relationship, collaboration, and communication, all of which are critical components to our collective success. I extend the opportunity for you to learn more about your police department by enrolling in our Citizen’s Police Academy. Please don’t hesitate to contact us if we can be of service.
