The Professional Standards Division encompasses several components of the Police Department:
- Internal Affairs
- Community Resource
- Public Services
The Professional Standards Division consists of one Sergeant and two Officers. The division is responsible for the recruiting and testing of police applicants for employment within the department, use of force data and police pursuits that are annually reviewed. Professional Standards also conducts Internal Affairs Investigations as ordered by the Chief of Police. Professional Standards maintains all Texas Commission on Law Enforcement (TCOLE) mandated documentation of sworn law enforcement officers. Additionally, the division monitors and gathers traffic stop and arrest data pursuant to statutes banning racial profiling.
Professional Standards coordinates and manages numerous community outreach events that include National Night Out, Citizen's Police Academy, Teen Police Academy, Volunteers in Policing Programs, and Crime Prevention Programs.
