Mission Statement

The Duncanville ISD Police Department will build trust within our community through transparency and positive engagement and will leverage employee development to increase legitimacy within our community.   

The Duncanville ISD Police Department is fully recognized by the State of Texas as a certified police department for the express purpose of providing law enforcement services for the Duncanville ISD community, its guests and visitors, and to monitor the overall security needs of the district property. The Duncanville ISD Police Department responds to calls for service and investigates any criminal matter that occurs on all district campuses and facilities, enforces parking and moving traffic violations by the issuance of appropriate citations and works in tandem with officers of the City of Duncanville Police department, the City of Dallas Police Department and the Dallas County Sheriff’s office as situations may require.

The primary purpose of Duncanville ISD police is to patrol and respond to calls within the physical district boundaries of Duncanville ISD.  Section 37.081 of the Texas Education Code affords the Duncanville ISD Police Department Police Officers the full powers, privileges and immunities of a peace officer while on or off duty.  Although the question of primary jurisdiction can get very technical, this expansion allows Duncanville ISD Police Officers to legally handle incidents that occur adjacent to district campuses and facilities as well as any property owned, rented, or leased by Duncanville ISD or otherwise under the District’s control.
