Chief Anthony Henderson
Welcome! We invite you to see our department through the information you will find on this website. The Wylie Police Department is a forward-thinking municipal police agency dedicated to serving the citizens and visitors of our great community. Wylie Police Department has a diverse workforce comprised of 63 commissioned officers and 22 civilian employees. The men and women of the Wylie Police Department answer approximately 31,400 calls for service each year and patrol more than 35 square miles of incorporated city limits. We proudly serve approximately 49,000 residents of Wylie and the many who visit the City of Wylie.
The Wylie Police Department acknowledges that our effectiveness depends upon the community’s support, acceptance of our authority, and approval of our actions. Therefore, we intend to provide quality customer service to the citizens and residents we serve. We believe strongly that working alongside our residents is the best way to keep our community safe. As your Police Chief, I am committed to building and maintaining a positive relationship by providing the most accountable, transparent, and successful law enforcement agency possible. I intend to be accessible, visible, and accountable to our community. I will empower the officers in our agency to take calculated risks — fostering an environment where officers are encouraged and rewarded for innovation and collaboration, without fear of failure. In turn, I challenge the community to help us create a city where our actions, our policies, and our voices are united toward a goal of public safety and community involvement.
I thank you for taking the time to visit our website and for your continued partnership with our agency. We are honored to serve such a wonderful community and will continue to do so with Integrity, Respect, Professionalism, Dedication and Excellence.
