Texas Police Department Information
The great state of Texas is located in the south central United States. It is the second largest state both in regards to size and population. Texas has deserts, pine forests, numerous lakes and the Rio Grande River. New Mexico is located to the west of Texas, Oklahoma to the north, Louisiana to the east, Arkansas to the Northeast, parts of five Mexican states to the southwest, and the beautiful Gulf of Mexico to the southeast. Houston is the most populous city in Texas and Dallas-Fort Worth is the largest Metroplex.
Due to vast size of Texas it has over 1000 police jurisdictions that preside over the numerous cities, towns, school districts, colleges, universities, and counties. These police jurisdictions are responsible for protecting the people and property in their areas. The law enforcement officers of each jurisdiction respond to calls, enforce laws, make arrests, issue citations, and may have to appear in court. The officers are also responsible for writing and filing car accident reports which they oversee.
There are over 500,000 car accidents in Texas each year and sadly over 3,000 fatalities. Generally, the car accident is covered by the police jurisdiction in which the car accident occurs. The Texas DPS is responsible for the writing and filing of the accident report if there is a fatality.
