Status of implemented police station changes  

March 18, 2020


The Police Department will be moving 3 miles north of  FM 1098.

We will be operating out of the Mobile Command Post to self quarantine together as a group and practice safe emergency responsive methods to minimize unnecessary exposure. 

Establishing a decontamination protocol after each encounter, from officer to vehicles and equipment; this is vital to first responders since we are out and about dealing with people on a daily bases.

In the near future the police department must be sustained in a separate building from city government to avoid the obvious of the epidemic.

To all citizens, my officers will continue moving forward as safely as they can.

Please, if you do not have an emergency and all you need is a report don't call 911 call the non-emergency number, 936-857-3614 and leave a short message and a call back number.

We do check this number three times a day, we will eventually call you back to address the non-emergency issue.

Please have patience, the police is managing these abnormal times as best as it can in a safe manner for everyone.

God Bless Prairie View and all its citizens and may God continue to Bless our Country.
