Northwest Patrol Division

Welcome to the Northwest Patrol Division which is approximately 175,000 people in roughly 50 square miles. The Northwest Division encompasses many diverse neighborhoods that contribute immensely to the character of our city. A large portion of the Division is made up of commercial enterprises. The World Trade Center, Market Center, Design District, the Infomart, the Asian Trade District, two vibrant entertainment districts and more than 75 hotels/motels are located in the area.


Serving the citizens living and working in our community is my highest priority. Our Community Engagement Unit officers strive to participate in community affairs and are skilled at addressing ongoing neighborhood nuisances. Detectives in our Northwest Investigative Unit primarily conduct follow-up investigations for burglary and theft offenses. While all personnel at the Northwest Division are committed to providing the most efficient delivery of police services and your support is essential to our success.


By working together, we will ensure that Northwest Dallas is a great place to live and work.
