A note about complaints; While the Maypearl Police Department encourages complaints or compliments, it is difficult to conduct an investigation and make a determination based on anonymous information. Section 614.022 of the Texas Government Code states that “To be considered by the head of a state agency or by the head of a fire department or local law enforcement agency, the complaint must be in writing and signed by the person making the complaint.” Additional information about this process may be obtained by calling us or emailing the Chief of Police.

Through the use of email, you may also commend the actions of an Officer of this Department or verbal commendations can also be given to any department supervisor. We also encourage you to send us your suggestions on how we can better serve you.
