On behalf of the Kilgore Police Department , I would like to welcome you to our website and thank you for your interest in our department.  It is a honor and privilege to serve as the Kilgore Police Chief and represent the members of your department  who are dedicated to serving those who live and work in this great city.

The men and women of the Kilgore Police Department are committed to providing the highest-quality service possible to make our community a better, safer place to live and work. We strive to accomplish our mission through living out our core departmental values: Service, Respect, Integrity, Professionalism, Accountability, and Compassion.  We have a dual philosophy of having a hard hitting approach to crime, while at the same time,  fostering our community relationships.  Balancing these philosophies ensures we proactively address crime and fear of crime through a shared relationship between our citizens and officers which results in an enhanced quality of life for our citizens.

Our Team consists of 37 Sworn Officers, 2 Reserve Officers, 14 full-time civilian employees, and up to 8 part-time staff members who are dedicated to serve and assist you in any way possible.

We serve a population of just over 15,000. Our patrol area consists of approximately 19 square miles.

I look forward to the future of this Department and City. I am very proud of the dedicated members of this Department and am excited about serving our community as your Chief of Police.
