New Horse Unveiled at WFPD

This morning, the Leadership of Wichita Falls Class of 2017 unveiled a new horse in front of the WFPD Police Memorial. The horse honors former Police Chief C.C. “Bud” Daniel and our 7 Fallen Officers.

A huge THANK YOU to Chief Daniel’s daughters, Ann Popejoy and Blenda Britt for making this dedication a reality.

Chief Daniel served as WFPD Chief for over 27 years (August 1949 – March 1977) and, at the time of his retirement, was the longest tenured Chief in Texas.

Lock, Take, & Hide – Don’t Be a Victim

The Wichita Falls Police Department would like to remind you to please LOCK, TAKE, and HIDE – LOCK your car, TAKE your keys, and HIDE (or remove) your belongings.

Criminals are notorious for targeting unlocked cars that have items such as purses/wallets, electronics, and weapons sitting out in plain view.

LOCK, TAKE, and HIDE only takes a few extra seconds and could save you a lot of money and headache later.

Don’t be a victim!

Thank You Wichita Falls!


We are truly blessed by your support for us and our mission to serve you well, Wichita Falls.

We understand that we are expected to perform our job for which we are paid. However, there’s nothing more motivating for us, especially when times are difficult, than receiving accolades from those whom we serve.

Thank you, Wichita Falls!
