Community Programs

The Lubbock Police Department is proud to serve a community that truly supports law enforcement. Throughout the years, LPD has developed a number of ways our community members can get involved and learn more about our department such as the Citizens Academy and Explorer Post. We also search for ways to give back, such as Santa Cops, Back the Badges Blood Drive, and several other events aimed at bringing our officers closer to the people they serve.

If your organization, school, business or church is interested in getting involved with LPD, please contact our Community Engagement Unit at (806)775-2420 or the Public Information Office at (806)775-2694.

The following are just a few examples of requests we get frequently:

  • LPD Tours for school and community groups
  • Educational and Safety presentations
  • Requests for K9, Mounted Patrol and SWAT demonstrations at events
  • Requests for officers to attend events honoring law enforcement
  • Ways to donate items such as stuffed animals to our patrol officers to give to children in need
