The Alvin Police Department was formed in 1950 and replaced a city marshal system of law enforcement. The Department has had 10 full-time chiefs of police in its six decades of existence. Currently, the Alvin Police Department consists of 79 paid members, 49 of which are sworn police officers, with the remaining 30 employees holding civilian positions.
With an annual operating budget of approximately $5.5 million, the Alvin Police Department offers a variety of services to improve the public safety and quality of life in our community.
Incidentally, the Department won the 18th annual Texas Governorís Committee on People with Disabilities Employment Award as a result of some of our innovative programs. The Department was presented this award in 1997 by then-Governor George W. Bush.
The Alvin Police Departmentís philosophy and its programs relating to youthís access to tobacco and alcohol have gained significant recognition.
Alvinís Tobacco Ordinance places an emphasis on education as the corrective measure for possession of tobacco products by minors and this program has been used as a model program for the Texas Department of Health. Also, Senate Bill 55 uses this mandatory education program as the proposal for the new State law that relates to youth tobacco access.
