Accredited Law Enforcement Agency
The Aubrey Police Department is a full-service police department staffed with professional police officers dedicated to community service. We provide all law enforcement services to the City of Aubrey, the Town of Providence Village, and the subdivisions of Silverado, Sandbrock Ranch, Aspen Meadows, and Winn Ridge.
Aubrey and Providence Village are located in the Northeast section of Denton County along the Highway 377 and Highway 380 corridor. Our population continues to grow each month, making the Aubrey Area one of the fastest growing in Denton County.
On February 2, 2021, the Aubrey Police Department received the award of “Accredited Law Enforcement Agency” from the Texas Police Chiefs Association Law Enforcement Recognition Program, becoming the 167th agency in the State to be so accredited. This voluntary process required the Police Department to conduct a critical self-review of the agency’s policies, procedures, facilities, and operations.
The Accreditation Program evaluates a Police Department’s compliance with over 166 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 Aubrey 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 that its Police Department is conforming to the current state of the art in law enforcement.
Your Input Matters
Most contacts between citizens and Aubrey police officers are positive and professional, but complaints do arise from time to time. Confusion, different perceptions, or timeliness of information can result in different accounts of the same incident. These differences need to be addressed quickly. You are entitled to efficient, fair, and impartial service, and the Aubrey Police Department takes your concerns seriously. We investigate all misconduct allegations and quickly respond to inquiries about employee actions or department policy.
The Texas Government Code requires that all complaints against police officers be in writing and signed by the person making the complaint. Making a false complaint is a violation of the Texas Penal Code and can be prosecuted. Since the relationship between the community and our officers is based on confidence and trust, our effectiveness is greatest when we and the community work together to reach this goal. We appreciate hearing from you. Your input makes a difference.
