About the Tyler Police Department

The Tyler Police Department consists of 187 sworn officers and 62 civilian employees who are organized into three divisions: Patrol, Investigative and Support.  Additionally, the department has a number of specialized units within the those division such as: the Crime Analysis Unit and Crisis Negotiations Unit.

According to the Tyler Police Department, “Crime Analysis is a systematic, analytical process directed at providing timely and pertinent information relative to crime patterns and trend correlations to assist the operational and administrative personnel in planning the deployment of resources for the prevention and suppression of criminal activities.

 The Crime Analysis Unit supports the operational elements and the administration of the Police Department by collecting, analyzing, and disseminating information on crime pattern detection, crime-suspect correlation, target profile analysis, and forecasting crime potential, trends, and patterns. 

The Crime Analysis Unit integrates service calls into the department’s geographical information system.  The Crime Analysis Unit completes monthly crime and traffic reports for the Department.

The Crisis Negotiations Unit is a six person team led by a Sergeant. It responds, in a specially equipped van, and in conjunction with the Special Operations Team, to instances of barricaded subjects and hostage situations. The team, which is on 24 hour call, is very experienced, well trained, and equipped, and has been recognized statewide for its expertise.”
