Lewisville PD earns “Recognized Law Enforcement Agency” for third time

Post Date:May 11, 2018
The Lewisville Police Department recently received the award of “Recognized Law Enforcement Agency” from the Texas Police Chiefs Association Law Enforcement Recognition Program. This marks the third straight time LPD has earned this honor.

LPD was originally recognized by TPCA in 2010 and was the 28th agency to achieve recognition statewide. LPD was re-recognized in 2014. Police agencies recognized by the TPCA must undergo on-site inspection every 4 years. This voluntary process required LPD to conduct a critical self-review of its policies, procedures, facilities and operations. The department began the lengthy process to become a “Recognized Law Enforcement Agency” in 2017 by preparing proofs of compliance for each of the Texas Law Enforcement Best Business Practices. Upon completion of the internal review, an outside audit and review was requested. This final on-site review took place on April 26, 2018. The on-site review is conducted by trained Police Chiefs from other areas of our state. The result of this review was then sent to the Texas Police Chiefs Association’s Recognition Committee for final analysis and decision to award “Recognized” status.

“I knew when we first entered this process in 2010 it would confirm that we have a great department,” said Chief Russ Kerbow. “The department earned its third recognition because we value our people, we serve our citizen’s every day, and we build towards a new tomorrow.”

LPD considers itself one of the best police departments in Texas. This process provided for an independent review of the department’s operations and should assure the citizens of Lewisville that LPD is conforming to the current state of the art in law enforcement.

“I am so proud of our department and the men and women throughout the entire organization who sacrifice every day to serve our public,” said Chief Kerbow. “I would especially like to recognize our Program Manager, Captain Dan Rochelle, and Officer Steven Schaffer for their efforts in coordinating our review this year.”

The actual presentation of the award will take place at a city council meeting later this summer. The department will also be recognized at the Texas Police Chiefs Association annual conference in April 2019.
