The Men and Women of the Richland Hills Police Department are proud to serve this community and welcome you to our website. We have put together a snapshot into our Department and the employees who are dedicated to creating a safe and enjoyable community for you to live, work and raise your family. We are committed to achieving community engagement with our citizens through forming partnerships, being transparent and inclusive in our policing models and standards.
