A Message from the Chief
Welcome to the Mesquite Police Department’s Website.  Here you will find the services of a professional organization dedicated to providing the highest quality police service to residents and visitors in the City of Mesquite.

The duty of the Mesquite Police Department is to improve the services and resources currently available as well as identifying and providing new services to the citizens we serve.  We will accomplish that duty through our community policing commitment.

Our objective is to help unite our community with public safety professionals so we may all work together to solve and prevent crime, resolve problems with increasing effectiveness, and provide for the diverse public safety needs of our community.

It is my belief that people are our most valuable resource, the men and women of this department have established an exemplary record of law enforcement service to our community. We are committed to enhancing public safety and improving the quality of life for everyone who works, plays, or visits this wonderful city.

On behalf of the men and women of the Mesquite Police Department, I thank you for your continued support. Through your involvement, I am confident our department will continue to provide the City of Mesquite with an unsurpassed level of service.
