A Message from the Chief of Police:
Our team would like to thank you for visiting the Henderson Police Department website. I am honored and blessed to be serving the city and its citizens as the Chief of Police. As the Chief, I represent all of the members of your police department, who are dedicated and selfless individuals that are driven by serving and helping others in this great city.
The members of this department are dedicated to providing the absolute best quality of service to our community to provide a safer and better place to work, live and visit. This is accomplished through our department's core values: Integrity, Respect, Accountability, Courage, Professionalism, Dedication and Service. We believe that we have to be resilient and firm when dealing with crime while at the same time continually fostering and building community relationships. We are striving to create a relationship and partnership with our community to make Henderson a better place together.
Our agency became a Recognized Texas Police Chief Association Department in late 2019, and underwent strenuous guideline requirements to achieve this designation. We are only the 160th agency in the state to receive this distinguished recognition out of approximately 2,400 agencies in the state.
I feel privileged and honored to live and work in this community. I’m extremely proud of our police department and the men and women who serve here. I’m also very excited about serving our community as your Chief of Police.
Chad Taylor, Chief of Police
