At the core of the Farmersville Police Department is the Patrol Unit which is its largest and most visible component. The Patrol Unit provides 24 hour police services to the community. Officers within the division generally work in uniform and drive "marked" (black and white) police cars.

The purpose of the Patrol Unit is to provide "first response" to requests for police services and to reduce crime, the fear of crime, circumstances that foster criminal activity and other conditions that adversely impact public safety.

The members of the Farmersville Police Department are committed to being responsive to our community in the delivery of quality services. We recognize our responsibility to maintain order, while affording dignity and respect to every individual. Our objective is to improve the quality of life through community partnership which promotes safe, secure neighborhoods throughout the City of Farmersville.

The department follows the philosophy of Community Oriented Policing and Problem Solving. This creates a team approach to solving community problems.
