Department Philosophy

The Brenham Police Department is a professional organization that prides itself on delivering the highest level of service possible. Our team members care deeply about our city and the citizens we serve. We pride ourselves in providing service with compassion, honesty, courtesy, professionalism, and sincerity. We are recognized as a “Best Practices” law enforcement agency by the Texas Police Chief's Association, one of fewer than 150 such agencies in the entire state.

As the chief of police, I am very proud of the members of our organization and we are committed to serving our citizens and visitors to Brenham by working in partnership with the various stakeholders throughout our community. With this partnership in mind, it is our goal to protect life and property, and to preserve the peace and enforce the law, while protecting the Constitutional Rights of every individual.

It is our people that make the difference in the Brenham Police Department. They are highly qualified and well equipped to provide full, 24/7 public service and law enforcement. I believe you will find our members to be both professional and proficient in addressing any concerns you may have. It is my pleasure to welcome you to our website, and to the City of Brenham!
