Recognized by the Texas Police Chiefs Association
The Recognition Program is a voluntary accreditation process where law enforcement agencies in Texas prove their compliance with Texas Law Enforcement Best Practices. These Best Practices were carefully developed by Texas Law Enforcement professionals to assist agencies in the efficient and effective delivery of service, improve officer safety, the reduction of risk, and the protection of individual rights.

2019 Texas Municipal Excellence Award Winner

To address an increase in thefts of building materials at construction sites, the City of Celina Police Department met with builders and other stakeholders to identify effective strategies to deter theft.  As a result of this collaboration, the problem-solving initiative identified 28 best practices, and the City developed a resource guide to help builders implement the strategies.  The result was a resounding success – a 63 percent reduction in construction-related thefts – which benefits the builders and the entire community.
