About the Frisco Police Department
The two largest divisions in the Frisco Police Department are the Patrol Division
and the Criminal Investigation Division. The Frisco Police Department Patrol
Division is the largest and most visible aspect of the department with 58 dedicated officers. Two Lieutenants -- who report
to the Operations Bureau Captain -- head the Patrol Division, which also includes eight Sergeants; eight Corporals; and 40
patrol officers. The division is responsible for the preliminary investigation of calls for service and crime, as well as
answering general calls for service.
The Criminal Investigations Division (CID) provides support to the Patrol Division.
This is mostly accomplished by conducting follow up investigations to offenses and incidents initiated by the Patrol Division.
Detectives assigned to CID are responsible for carrying out complete and thorough investigations. There are numerous responsibilities
including, but not limited to, the following: Interviewing witnesses and suspects; Surveillance; Preparation and execution
of search and arrest warrants; Processing crime scenes; Submitting evidence to crime labs; Proficiency training; Registered
Sex Offender compliance checks; Preparation of case reports for submission to the District Attorney’s Office; Court
and Grand Jury testimony; Crime analysis; Networking with other agencies
The Frisco Police Department also has a Traffic Unit which consists of one
Sergeant, and seven Officers, including three assigned to motorcycle detail. The primary function of the Traffic Unit is to
enforce state traffic laws; investigate traffic accidents; educate the public about traffic issues; and assist with complaints
of aggressive driving. Motorcycle officers also lead parades and attend special events. Four of the Officers are Accident
Reconstructionists, who investigate fatality crashes and file any criminal charges associated with the crash with the district
attorney's office. The Officers also investigate and prepare cases for “hit and run” accidents.
