Chief Ryan HoltA welcome from your Chief of Police

On behalf of the men and women of the Waco Police Department, I want to welcome you to the Department’s web page. Whether you are a resident, visitor or even just trying to learn more about our Department, I want to ensure you that our officers are committed to keeping our community safe.

Waco is a great place to live and visit. The Department can only be effective with an ongoing partnership with the citizens we serve. We will continue to build on a long history of community policing to enhance that partnership. It is our belief that this relationship must start with mutual respect and an understanding that regardless of our backgrounds; we are all fellow citizens first.

I hope that you will take the time to learn more about the Department from our storied history to the services we provide on a daily basis. If you have chosen to make the Waco area your home, I urge you to become involved in your community and to take advantage of the numerous programs we offer to assist the Department in making your community a safer place to live.

If you want to move beyond assisting us as a neighbor, please take a look at our recruiting/employment page. We are always looking for folks to become police officers and we usually have opportunities for civilian positions as well.

Your feedback is important to us. Be sure to send us positive comments and also let us know when we have room for improvement. Our public information unit utilizes numerous social media platforms to help keep you informed about what is going on with the Department and I hope that you will follow this great Department.
