Professional Services Division
This division is composed of several units and is responsible for administrative reports dealing with police activities. The Professional Services Unit conducts staff inspections to ensure policies are being followed by every unit of the department. The annual Racial Profiling Report is available here:
Recruiting & Hiring
The McKinney Police Department is a highly respected professional law enforcement organization. We seek to hire only the finest and most qualified candidates available. We recruit at many college campuses, military bases and law enforcement training centers in search of candidates with a positive attitude who meet our high standards.
Our Training Section provides training that not only meets, but also exceeds basic requirements. This section develops an annual in-service training module that incorporates state-mandated topics of learning, as well as topics proposed by command staff from the department.
Accreditation & Reporting Section
The Accreditation and Reporting Section is responsible for oversight of CALEA Accreditation and TPCA Recognition for the department as well as aspects of Planning and Research, creation and modification to departmental written directives, divisional inspections, statistical reporting and website maintenance.
The Records Section handles all reports generated by the City of McKinney Police Department. Copies of the following reports can be purchased from the Records Section: accident reports, offense reports and arrest reports.
Crisis Intervention Unit
This unit oversees the Crisis Intervention Team (CIT) program for the department including monitoring of response to persons demonstrating mental health issues warranting police intervention, training of department personnel and coordination with outside agencies in an effort to ensure persons suffering from mental illness receive assistance.
The Mounted Patrol provides highly visible patrol in all areas of the city with special emphasis in the downtown area. Mounted Patrol is also responsible for special events and represents the department at ceremonial events such as parades and exhibitions.
School Resource Officer Unit
The primary goal of the School Resource Officer Unit is to provide law enforcement services to McKinney’s public schools. The unit personnel are positive role models to the students with the goal of assisting the students in establishing lifelong respect for others as well as creating a positive relationship between students and law enforcement. SROs interact with students through classroom presentations, student counseling, and in the course of investigating criminal activity, on school campuses.
The tip411 program was established through the MPD and MISD to offer students a vehicle for reporting potential violence, drugs, bullying and other sensitive issues anonymously. SROs receive tips sent via text or email specific to each campus and are able to respond to these notifications. (tip411 is not a substitute for calling the Police Department, if you need to report an emergency or an in-progress incident, dial 911.) For more information on this program, or to submit your anonymous tip online, visit tip411 on the MISD website.
