Patrol Operations


Patrol Officers respond to 911 calls-for-service, enforce laws, apprehend criminals, and provide services intended to promote safe and livable neighborhoods for the citizens of Haltom City. These officers are the most visible to citizens and are the first responders when a citizen calls 911 and asks for police services. Led by two Captains, officers assigned to Patrol are divided into four platoons that work twelve-hour shifts and patrol the City’s twelve square miles providing 911 responses to approximately 40,000 citizens.

K-9 Unit

The K9 Unit consists of two officer and K9 teams supervised by a Sergeant.

Sergeant Scott Russell, who joined the department in 2005, supervises the K9 Unit. He is a graduate of Missouri College and has obtained his Master Peace Officer License. His partner Filo (for "First in, Last Out") is an 18 month old Belgian Malinois, also from Holland, who has achieved the highest standards for Narcotic and Patrol Certifications. Filo is a dual purpose dog, which means he will be utilized as both a drug and a patrol dog. Filo and Sgt. Russell completed a rigorous ten week training course in Arkansas.

Officer Brandon St John joined the Haltom City Police Department in 2003 and has received three prestigious awards, including the Medal of Valor. He joined the K9 team after completion of a four week training course in Arkansas with his partner, Jacey, a three year old Belgian Malinois who comes to us from Holland.  Jacey is a single purpose dog trained in detecting narcotics, tracking, and article recovery.

K9s Jacey and Filo were secured and trained using Drug Forfeiture Funds. The dogs are sometimes used to assist other area agencies that do not have K9 units. They are also available to make appearances at schools and special community events where the officers often conduct a demonstration of their applications.

If you wish to have a K9 demonstration at a community event, you may contact Sgt. Scott Russell at 817-222-7100.

Animal Services

Under the supervision of the Patrol Operations Captain, Animal Services enforces city ordinances concerning domestic pets and livestock and responds to citizen concerns. Animal Services has three civilian Officers and one Kennel Technician under a civilian supervisor. All staff hold multiple certifications in animal care.

The shelter has 36 dog kennels and 33 cat kennels.
