Crime Prevention / Public Education

The Forney Police Department has three part- time crime prevention officers that can assist at homeowners association (HOA) meetings, neighborhood watch meetings, public events, schools, and different organizations in the City of Forney. This division can provide statistics and information on protecting your assets, ID theft, personal safety, etc.


The Forney Independent School District (FISD) and Kaufman County participate in a cooperative effort to provide law enforcement for the safety and security of the students and employees. The Kaufman County Sheriff's Office has assigned, on a full time basis, 6 officers to serve as School Resource Officers (SRO).
