Lytle Police Department
NEW POLICE DEPARTMENT FACILITY / SEE SLIDE SHOW (UPDATED PHOTOS)
Welcome to the Lytle PD, we will be moving into a new facility in a few weeks!
Currently the general contractor believes that the building will be turned over to us on March 10, 2014. We hope to be moved in and fully operational by April 1st. The new facility is located on property that the city already owns adjacent to the Public Works yard on Hester St (right underneath the downtown water tower). The facility is 3,500 square feet and will be designed to meet the needs of a police department our size with plenty of room to grow. City Hall will be able to expand into our existing part of the building. Our size and workload have grown since the summer of 1999 when we moved from one side of the city hall (a one room office) to our current location on the other side of city hall (a large open room, a chief's office, and two storage rooms). While we have made good use of the current situation we are now at a point that we simply need more room. In the summer of 1999 we had one computer and a fax machine and we thought we were high-tech! We also purchased a brand new Polaroid camera for each car too. Times have changed.
You can find our current and past weekly and monthly reports. Be sure and explore our pages, check out the Divisions
section for lots of information on us!
Feel free to stop by the Police Department to talk to us in person about any issue or concern.
