Dayton Texas

Police Department

Message from the Chief of Police:

Chief VineHello and welcome to the Dayton Police Department’s website.

I am proud to serve as the Chief of Police and work alongside some of the most dedicated men and women in the law enforcement profession. We strive daily to provide the best possible service to our citizens and the many visitors to our community.  

Our department understands that to be successful we need to have a strong working relationship with our entire community and we are constantly looking for ways to improve on the great partnership we enjoy already. We also understand the importance of communication and we utilize many different community outreach programs to further enhance our ability to not only communicate with our citizens but to listen to them as well.

As public servants, our function is to serve for the betterment of those who live in, work in, and visit our city. Our goal is to do this every day, on every shift, and on every call for service.

Our department takes a strong and tough stance against criminal activity and those who would prey on others for personal gain. We take our oath to protect and serve very seriously and will not tolerate behavior that is not in compliance with the established laws of the State of Texas.

We work diligently every day to become the best police department we can be because that is what Dayton deserves.

I invite you to take the time to get to know your officers and the other employees who are your police department. Stop by the station and visit us. Our doors are always open.


Robert G. Vine
