  7. Training Division

    The San Marcos Police Department became a TCOLE approved training provider in 1989. This was done so that the department could provide continuing education for our own officers in-house. In 1993, San Marcos PD applied to TCOLE and gained accreditation as a full training academy. This allows the San Marcos Police Department to train our own people as well as those from outside agencies in continuing education as well as certification courses.

  8. Victims Services

    The San Marcos Police Department Victims Services program is looking for a few good volunteers to serve on a Crisis Response Team to aid victims of disaster, trauma and violent crime.
