The Corinth Police Department has been awarded the “Re-Recognized” designation from the Texas Police Chiefs Association (TPCA) following an internal review that measured its level of adherence to a comprehensive list of best practices, once again joining a select list of law enforcement agencies in the state. Corinth was the 38th agency in the state to be recognized initially and now over 200 police departments have been recognized across the State of Texas since the program’s inception. The Police Department first became a recognized Agency in 2011, and was re-recognized in 2015 and now again for 2019.
"The Corinth Police Department have always shown their commitment to the highest levels of integrity and professionalism," stated Lieutenant Jimmie Gregg. " This designation confirms that our officers are employing the best practices in our profession. It is very rewarding to have this validated from a respected and independent outside source”
Created in 2006, the Recognition Program evaluates a Police Department’s compliance with over 166 Best Business Practices for Texas Law Enforcement. These Best Practices were carefully developed by Texas Law Enforcement professionals to assist agencies in the efficient and effective delivery of service and the protection of individual’s rights. These Best Practices cover all aspects of law enforcement operations including use of force, protection of citizen rights, vehicle pursuits, property and evidence management, and patrol and investigative operations.
An audit team from the TPCA interviewed the Police staff and conducted a review of the department’s operations and facilities. The Recognition Committee reviewed the findings of the audit team and voted affirmatively to award a "Re-Recognized" to Corinth. The status is good for four years, with annual updates.
This designation confirms that our officers are employing the most current and best practices in our profession and are meeting the professional obligations to citizens, businesses and visitors of Corinth and Shady Shores. The department will be recognized at the Texas Police Chiefs Association annual conference next April and at the April 4th City Council meeting.
