Racial Profiling Statement
The Alvord ISD Police Department follows the 77th Texas Legislature’s mandate to prohibit racial profiling in Texas. Our police officers work under district policy and departmental regulations that are consistent with all state and federal laws as well as the Texas Police Chief Association Best Practices. Our departmental regulations include provisions for citizens contact for a compliment and/or complaint on our officers. The Alvord ISD Police Department realizes that occasionally there will be disagreements with individuals that come in contact with our officers. These disagreements between citizens and officers need to be addressed. We trust that the vast majority of contacts between citizens and officers are conducted in a positive and professional manner. The relationship between the community and our officers is based on transparency and public trust. We are only effective when we work together with the community to reach a common goal.
Citizens feeling that they have a legitimate concern may make a formal complaint to the Alvord ISD Police Department at any time by contacting any member of this department for information on the complaint process. Additional information about this process may be obtained by calling us at (940) 427-4470 and asking for a supervisor or by accessing our department via E-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org.
The Alvord ISD Police Department would like to know about positive police contacts. Please write or E-mail the Chief a letter or note to let him know about a positive contact with our officers. Chief Vo will let the officer know about your letter and a copy will be placed in the officer’s personnel folder.
