Texas Police Chiefs Association Best Practices Recognition Program

On March 12, 2012, The Paris Police Department attained 'recognized status' with the Texas Police Chief's Association Best Practices Program.

On July 27, 2016, the department was 're-recognized' as a Best Practices Department. This certification is good through 2020 at which time, the department will be audited again for compliance with the best practices program.

The Best Practices Recognition Program is a voluntary process whereby 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 individuals' rights. The Best Practices were specifically designed to aid Texas agencies in providing the best quality of service to the people of our State. The Texas Best Practices Recognition Program has clearly become the new Gold Standard for Texas Law Enforcement!
