Message from the Chief of Police:

Hello and welcome to the Gladewater Police Department’s website.
I am proud to serve as the Chief of Police and work alongside some of the best men and women in the law enforcement profession in East Texas. We strive daily to provide the best possible service to our citizens and the many visitors to our community.

Our department understands that to be successful we need to have a strong working relationship with our entire community and we are constantly looking for ways to improve on the great partnership we enjoy already. We also understand the importance of communication and we utilize many different community outreach programs to further enhance our ability to not only communicate with our citizens, but to listen to them as well.

As public servants our function is to serve for the betterment of those who live in, work in and visit our city. Our goal is to do this every day, on every shift and on every call for service.
We are working every day at becoming the best police department in east Texas because that is what Gladewater deserves.

I invite you to take the time to get to know your officers and the other employees who combine to create your police department. Stop by the station and visit us. Our doors are always open.
