The men and women of the Denton Police Department are committed to protecting the citizens of Denton. We practice community-based policing and value our partnerships with citizens and community organizations.
The Department is dedicated to providing police service at the most professional level. I look forward to leading the Department and working with the community to keep Denton a safe place to live.
Chief Hicks' Bio
I began my career in law enforcement with the Denton Police Department in 1993, and now have over 20 years experience serving the town. I moved up through the ranks, and accepted the Chief position in 2007.
I hold an associate’s degree in Criminal Justice, along with many different law enforcement certifications including the FBI LEEDA Trilogy. I am constantly seeking training and educational opportunities to expand my knowledge of law enforcement and its practices.
