Carrollton United Athletic League
Our new Police Athletic League City Futsal team Carrollton United has been a huge success so far! It’s been the first organized team sport experience for many of the boys, and we couldn’t be more proud.
Thank you to their families for letting us be part of the boys’ lives, and to Thomson Reuters and Carrollton-Farmers Branch Independent School District’s Central Elementary for supporting this important community outreach.
Also, thank you to our officers for volunteering their time to coach and mentor these young men, and to Thomson Reuters and Metrocrest Chamber for their support.
Coffee With A Cop
We had such a great time meeting with some of the great people of Carrollton and getting to know them better over a cup of coffee. Thank you to everyone who came by to say hi!
Junior Police Academy
The Carrollton Police Department Junior Police Academy is back for 2019! JPA is free and open to current middle school students who live in or attend school in Carrollton. The program is designed to teach kids the basics of law enforcement in a fun, hands-on experience.

Make A Wish
He's going to Disney World!
It was our privilege to escort Batman and friends to give five-year-old Marcos the good news today from Make-A-Wish North Texas.
Perhaps this young man has a future career with the Carrollton PD? We sure like to hope so.
We spend a lot of time sharpening skills and building partnerships we hope we never actually need.
Recently, Cmdr. Humphrey and Sgt. Smith learned about HAM Radio and how its operators can support emergency response in times of disaster.
Thank you M.A.R.S. (Metrocrest Amateur Radio Society) for hosting us at their annual talk-around event held today at the Metrocrest Consortium Fire Training Center.
Tough week? Lemonade always helps.
Officer Norris found these lovely entrepreneurs in the 3400 block of Cemetery Hill. If you’re ever in the neighborhood and see them setting up shop, be sure to pay them a visit.
Run For The Blue 5K
On July 7, 2016, five police officers were killed and eight police officers were injured in the line of duty in an ambush on the Dallas Police Department, Dallas Area Rapid Transit Police, and El Centro College Police. Run For The Blue was founded in response to this attack to support fallen and injured officers and their families.
Funds donated to Run For The Blue events are collected and distributed by the Blue Guardian Foundation, a 501(c)(3) organization.
Unidos is all about building and strengthening ties with our Spanish-speaking community.
We learned that many times Spanish-speakers don’t bother calling 911 when they need us because they worry the call-taker won’t speak Spanish.
Our guests learned that their worry is unfounded. Our emergency dispatchers can access a translator 24/7 for virtually any language, even if the initial call-taker doesn’t speak that language. The caller may just have to be patient through a few initial uncertain moments, but help IS on the way!
CPOA purchased a table at Carrollton's Festival of the Switchyard for Hallie's Hero's charity organization.
We had a huge success in getting swabed for potential bone marrow donations.
With the help of officers and the Carrollton citizens, we have over 60 swabs.
