Information / Statistics
TPCA, or Texas Police Chiefs Association Best Practices for Law Enforcement, was incepted in 2006 to assist Texas law enforcement agencies in the efficient and effective delivery of service, the reduction of risk and the protection of individual's rights. The Best Practices cover all aspects of law enforcement operations including use of force, protection of citizens' rights, vehicle pursuits, property and evidence management, and patrol and investigative operations.
Achieving the Standards
Flower Mound is one of only 117 municipal law enforcement agencies in Texas to be honored with the Recognized status. The Recognition of the FMPD was accomplished after almost eight months of work by FMPD personnel to ensure the department policies, procedures and actions were compliant with TPCA Standards. The FMPD notified TPCA in January 2015 of its intent to seek Recognition and immediately conducted the initial phase of self-assessment.
TPCA's standards address major law enforcement subjects including:
Administration and Organization
Records and Information Management
Law Enforcement Operations
Professional Standards and Conduct
Use of Force
Arrestee Processing and Transportation
Property and Evidence Management
In awarding Recognition to the FMPD, TPCA Assessors cited well documented policies and procedures, records and information management, law enforcement operations, communications, property and evidence management, and the courtesy and professionalism of the department employees as outstanding attributes.
