Ask The Mayor


Mayor Hal Richards

Q. - I am an Iraq veteran with many awards and accomplishments. How would I go about getting involved in Terrell law enforcement? And what are the requirements?

Answer - Thank you for your question and thank you for your service to our country.


To be qualified for application to the Terrell Police Department a person must be 21-44 years old and must be a high school graduate or have GED +12 hours of college credit.


There are a number of other eligibility requirements that we would be glad to provide.


The application process includes the civil service examination, physical fitness testing, polygraph, psychological evaluation, extensive background investigation, oral interview board, physical examination, drug screening, and interview with the Chief of Police. Applicants do not have to be certified peace officers prior to employment.


If you would like to have more information please contact Corporal Rhitt Jackson at 972-551-6622, extension 292




Hal Richards, Mayor
