Responsibilities & Services
The men and women of the Murphy Police Department are committed to delivering the most progressive, responsive, and professional police services possible while maintaining exceptional customer service attitudes towards citizens and visitors alike. Our personnel are highly dedicated to protecting life and property while maintaining peace and tranquility within the community.
Our commitment shown true in both 2009 and 2010 when the City of Murphy was listed as the second and third safest city in North Texas by the FBI, and we're not stopping there. Our goal is to reduce crime and accidents in Murphy to the lowest numbers possible utilizing our 31 full-time employees and, of course, our citizens.
We hope you find our website informative and we have a wide array of other web based services for you. First, we are proud to participate in a LIVE crime statistics site called RAIDSOnline.com. This live database updates daily and allows citizens to receive customizable alerts of crimes happening in their neighborhood, community or the whole city.
Our second set of online services is geared towards staying connected with each and every citizen in the social media era. The Murphy Police Department is proud to participate in both two-way and one-way community networking via many social media sites, all of which may be found here.
