Since 2011, the Boerne Police Department has participated in the Texas Police Chief’s Association Law Enforcement Recognition Program. The Texas Police Chief’s Association Law Enforcement Recognition Program provides for external auditing of the Boerne Police Department by highly regarded law enforcement professionals to ensure our continuing compliance with the best and safest law enforcement practices available. These procedures and codes of conduct are standardized by a committee of Texas Police Chiefs and attorneys to minimize risk and harm to both the public and the department’s police officers. The Boerne Police Department is required to prove its compliance with these practices on an annual basis and is inspected on site by external auditors every four years. During these audits every aspect of law enforcement operations is covered including use of force, protection of individual rights and civil liberties, vehicle pursuits, property and evidence management, and patrol and investigative procedures. This voluntary process is undertaken by the department with the best interests of the city at heart and is a demonstration of the department’s commitment to providing transparent, ethical and professional law enforcement services to the citizens of Boerne.
