TPCAF Recognition Program

The Law Enforcement Recognition Program is a voluntary process where police agencies in Texas prove their compliance with 164 Texas Law Enforcement Best Practices. These Best Practices were carefully developed by Texas Law Enforcement professionals to assist agencies in the efficient and effective delivery of service, the reduction of risk and the protection of individual’s rights.

In 2008 the Decatur Police Department was proud to be the 10th agency in the State of Texas to receive accreditation through the Texas Police Chiefs Association Foundation (TPCAF).  The Decatur Police Department continues to strive towards excellence in modern professional law enforcement practices.
