The Dallas Area Rapid Transit (DART) Police Department has once again been accredited in the Texas Police Chiefs Association Foundation (TPCAF) Texas Law Enforcement Accreditation Program.

The Law Enforcement Accreditation Program is a voluntary process where police agencies in the State of Texas prove their compliance with 170 Texas Law Enforcement Best Practices. These Best Practices were carefully developed by Texas Law Enforcement professionals to assist agencies in the efficient and effective delivery of service, the reduction of risk and the protection of individual's rights.

The DART Police Department is one of only 184 accredited agencies in the State of Texas, out of over 2,700 law enforcement agencies. DART has been an accredited agency since 2014, achieving re-accreditation status twice since their initial accreditation.

You can learn more about the Texas Police Chiefs Association Foundation (TPCAF) Texas Law Enforcement Accreditation Program on their website: https://www.texaspolicechiefs.org/accreditation-program.
