Public Safety is one of the City of Temple's four areas or strategic focus. We believe our residents have a right to live in a safe and healthy community, and we are dedicated to making Temple a place you love to call home. The Temple City Council is committed to providing the Temple Police Department with the resources and support they need to serve our City effectively and foster public trust. The men and women of this fine organization tirelessly serve with integrity, honor and dedication. We are grateful for the commitment and sacrifices that they and their families make every day.
