The Carrollton Police Department is made up of 167 sworn officers, two additional officers funded by federal grant, 53 full-time civilian employees, and ten additional part-time detention officers. We serve a diverse North Texas community of 133,000 citizens in about 37 square miles
The Department is led by Chief Rex Redden and is divided into two bureaus, each led by an Assistant Chief of Police:
- The Operations Bureau is led by Assistant Police Chief Derick Miller.

The Carrollton Police Department has been recognized by the Texas Police Chief’s Association as a “Recognized Agency” as part of their Best Practices Recognition Program since 2009. The Recognition Program is a voluntary process where police agencies in Texas prove their compliance with 168 Texas Law Enforcement Best Practices. These Best Practices were carefully developed by Texas Law Enforcement professionals to assist agencies in the efficient and effective delivery of service, the reduction of risk and the protection of individual’s rights. The Recognition Program assures both City Leaders and the citizens of Carrollton that their Police Department is operating in a manner that reflects the current Best Practices of Law Enforcement and we are proud of this accomplishment.
