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.
