Chief HichsThe 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.

The Policeman's Prayer

The Policemans Prayer

When I start my tour of duty, God
Whatever crimes may be,
As I walk the deserted streets alone,
Let me be closer to Thee.

Please give me understanding,
With both young and old,
Let me listen with attention,
Until the story is told.

Let me never make a judgment,
In a rash or callous way,
But let me hold my patience,
Let each man have his say.

Lord, if some dark and dreary night,
I must give my life,
Lord, with your everlasting love,
Protect my children and my wife.
