Our Vision

The Hill Country Village Police Department is committed to professional public service reflecting recognition of the inherent value of each individual in our society. Our officers strive to earn and maintain trust, respect, and confidence by exemplifying the belief that the freedoms, rights, and dignity of all citizens must be protected and preserved. To this end, we pledge ourselves to the highest standards of morality, fairness, honesty, dedication, professionalism, and courage.

The Police Department is responsible for providing law enforcement in the City of Hill Country Village. The Department is divided into six distinct service areas: patrol, police investigation, fire investigation, emergency management, code compliance, and operations. The functions of the Police Department are authorized, and to a significant extent mandated, through Federal and State statutes and are essential for the protection of life and property.

In performing the patrol, investigation, and code compliance functions, the Police Department provides protection, traffic control, emergency management coordination, and municipal code compliance; assists other law enforcement agencies; conducts crime prevention programs; and investigates crimes. The Department also works closely with the City Engineer in conducting a traffic analysis, with the Building Inspector regarding Code Compliance, and with the Animal Control Officer. Dispatch services are provided by the Bexar County Sheriff’s Office.
