NORTHEAST POLICE DEPARTMENT

October 1, 2013 the Town of Cross Roads and the City of Krugerville joined jurisdictions to create the Northeast Police Department. This is a new venture and only the third of its kind in the State of Texas. This merger benefits each city by providing twenty four hour coverage and a joint municipal court system without further burdening its residents with increased taxes. A Police Commission Board was formed with three representatives from each jurisdiction to oversee the Police Department. This is a new and exciting time for residents and we look forward to serving our citizens. Allow us to introduce you to your Board of Commissioners and Police Officers for the Northeast Police Department.
