Investigative Services

Criminal Investigations

The Criminal Investigations Division investigates criminal offenses that occur within Haltom City and ensures the proper collection and preservation of evidence related to these crimes. The unit includes ten Detectives who are supervised by two Sergeants and two Corporals. One Sergeant supervises two Corporals who share responsibility for Property Crimes, Crimes Against Children, Family Violence, Sex Offender Registration, Financial Crimes and Internet Crimes. Another Sergeant supervises the Street Crimes Unit, Crime Scene and Property Room.

A third Sergeant is assigned to the county-wide Metro Narcotics Intelligence and Coordination Unit, and one Haltom City Detective is assigned to the Tarrant County Auto Theft Task Force.


The Haltom City Police Department Traffic Unit enforces traffic laws and investigates collisions on our City streets; it consists of five Police Officers supervised by a Police Sergeant. The Sergeant and two of the officers are assigned to ride police motorcycles, one works traffic duties from a regularly marked police vehicle, and two serve as a dedicated DWI Unit. Most of the officers in the unit are specially trained and certified in Collision Reconstruction, and they work most collisions, especially those involving serious injuries and/or fatalities. The Traffic Unit also participates in State and Federally funded Selective Traffic Enforcement Programs (STEP) that assist in the reduction of collisions and injuries.

Traffic concerns or questions can be left on the Traffic Hotline at 817-222-7049.

Crime Free Multi-Housing

The Crime Free Programs are innovative, law enforcement based crime prevention solutions designed to help keep illegal activity off rental property. The programs were developed by the Mesa Arizona Police Department in 1992. The International Crime Free Programs have been extremely successful in nearly 2,000 cities in 44 U.S. states and ten other countries.

The Crime Free Programs consist of three-phases that are completed under the supervision of local law enforcement. The cornerstone of the Crime Free Programs is the partnership between law enforcement and the community working together to prevent crime. Property owners and managers make the commitment to learn and apply the Crime Free Programs to help keep illegal activity off their rental property. This combination of resources has proven to be successful in fighting crime. Property managers can become individually certified after completing training in each phase while the physical property itself can only be certified upon completion of all three phases. The anticipated long term benefits of a fully certified property are reduced crime, a more stable resident base, and reduced exposure to civil liability.

The Police Department is in the process of implementing the Crime Free Multi-Housing Program, which addresses apartment communities. The program coordinator is Officer Brandi Perkins, who can be reached at 817-222-7198 or email Officer Brandi Perkins (select DIVISIONS>INVESTIGATIVE SERVICES).

School Resource Officers

Supervised by the Investigative Services Captain, School Resource Officers serve as security to the Birdville Independent School District. Officers are in place at the Shannon Learning Center, Haltom High School, and another at North Oaks and Haltom Middle Schools. For inquiries regarding SROs, call 817-222-7077 or email Captain Steve Irvin (select DIVISIONS>INVESTIGATIVE SERVICES).
