State Recognition

The Bridgeport Police Department has been designated by the Texas Police Chief’s Association as a “Re-Recognized Agency” as part of their Best Practices Recognition Program.  The Department achieved this four-year award beginning in 2009, 2013 and 2017.  In 2017, the Department became the 13th agency in the State of Texas to be "Recognized" for a third time.    

The Recognition Program is a voluntary process where police agencies in Texas prove their compliance with 170 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, the reduction of risk and the protection of individual’s rights. The Recognition Program assures both City Leaders and the citizens of Bridgeport that their Police Department is operating in a manner that reflects the current Best Practices of Law Enforcement and we are proud of this accomplishment.
