Commend An Officer

Everyone likes a pat on the back when they do a good job.  Dallas Police Officers are no different.  Each year, the Department receives thousands of employee commendations from the public.  But for each one we receive, there are probably twice as many commendable acts that go unnoticed.


When you receive service from our Department that you feel is worthy of a commendation, we would like to hear about it.  Commendations can be made by:

  • E-mail directly to: Please include all the information you can remember such as the employee's name, the date, time, and circumstances of the incident.
  • Call the Internal Affairs Division at (214) 671-3986
  • Call or visist any Dallas Police facility and ask to speak to a supervisor. 
  • Mail it to us.

The employee will be notified of your commendation as will his/her supervisor, and a copy will also be placed in his/her employee file.​​
