It is an exciting time at the Argyle Police Department as we continue to grow in both population and professionalism. This is an excellent place to work and call home. Argyle is ranked as the top public-school system in Texas, based on the Lone Star Cup awards, and is home to the top private school in the state of Texas, Liberty Christian. Our economy and tax base are strong as we grow, yet we continue to maintain our rural feel by design.

We have a relaxed employee atmosphere where you can make a difference each day, and you will find that you are an important part of a team here instead of just a badge number. Although small today, we are growing and adding officers on a yearly basis. The Town encompasses approximately 12 square miles in southern Denton County.  We have a strong commitment to service in the community, demand excellence in everything we do, and focus our efforts in that direction.  As part of the hiring process, you will take part in a ride-along where one of our patrol officers will give you the opportunity to discuss what it is like to work for the Argyle Police Department.  We are certain you will come away from this experience understanding just how special this department is. 

We have a heavy commitment to evolution in the police department and consistently update or upgrade our equipment and policies to remain modern and relevant.  We answer about 5,000 calls for service in the community per year and serve an extremely active population that provides overwhelming support for everything we do.

Our schedules are flexible 12-hour shifts, and we strive to keep the family first when arranging for time off.  The department furnishes uniforms and every tool you could need to be successful. We have a competitive employee benefits and pay package and our retirement system is the best TMRS has to offer.
