We are in the final weeks of the donation drive to support this year's Shop With a Cop event. We need your help to raise the money necessary to reach our goal of providing up to 250 children a brighter Christmas this year!
This is the 25th year of our Shop With a Cop program and we are excited to sponsor more children this year than ever before.
Backing the Blue - Denton is hosting a Family Fun Night November 19th from 5:30 pm to 7:30 pm at the Denton Civic Center to show thanks to the men and women in blue in the Denton area. All proceeds benefit injured and fallen law enforcement officers and their families.
The Denton City Council voted 5 to 1 to approve the 2017-18 City Budget which kept the full Police Department budget at the levels proposed by the City Manager's Proposed Budget. This includes the travel and training budget which had been threatened.
The DPOA has received word that the Denton City Council has been considering cutting the Police Department's training budget by $10,000 in 2017 to just $21,000.
Based on the number of employees of the department, both sworn and support staff, that figure allows for less than $100 per employee for training over the next year.
