On April 10, 2018 the Highland Village Police Department was presented the Texas Law Enforcement Best Practices Recognition Program Award from the Texas Police Chiefs Association. The award recognizes the department’s compliance with the Police Chief’s best business practices since 2009. The Program, similar to accreditation for universities, schools and hospitals, has
established a set of 168 professional standards based on Texas law, contemporary best practices, and court decisions. The standards address a full range of law enforcement operations such as use of force, protection of citizen rights, property and evidence management and more.  


In 2009 HVPD was one of the first to become a recognized police agency. Annual reports submitted to the Texas Police Chiefs Association confirms the department continued to meet the standards. An on-site review is required every four years. Earlier this year trained assessors spent two days conducting the on-site assessment. The recognition shows the Highland Village Police Department continues to meet or exceed the best practices for professional law enforcement in Texas.
