A Message from Chief David Burgess…

The Westover Hills Police Department is committed to serving Westover Hills’ residents and visitors with integrity, honesty, fairness, compassion and courage while exhibiting professionalism and ethical conduct.

Police services are conducted by ten full-time certified police officers and four communications professionals. While patrol officers are the most visible, it takes the entire team to insure the safety of the community. The Department is a recognized Best Practice Agency from the Texas Police Chiefs Association. This recognition program reviews critical policies and operations for compliance with 166 best business practices for Texas Law Enforcement. 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. The department was initially recognized in 2015 as a Best Practice agency and in 2019 the department was recognized the second time.

With over 2,500 law enforcement agencies in Texas, Westover Hills was the 109th agency to have the privilege of being a recognized agency.

As first responders to both medical and safety issues, each officer is certified as an emergency medical responder or emergency medical technician, and each patrol unit is equipped with an automated external defibrillator and trauma kit.

It’s this type of staff dedication that keeps crime low and the community tranquil.

My door is always open to new ideas and conversations with the community, so please feel free to contact me at 817-737-3127 or dburgess@westoverhillspd.org.
