Animal Control


The College Station Animal Control Unit helps to ensure that our community enjoys a high quality of life by enforcing laws that protect citizens from dangerous and domestic animals from abuse and neglect. We investigate a wide range of complaints, including barking dogs, animal bites, and animal abuse complaints. Animals may be impounded and quarantined when appropriate to address safety and health concerns. Animal Control Officers may issue citations for violations of City Ordinance or state law. By working to help the public have a thorough understanding of and compliance with these laws, we promote the safety and well-being of animals and improve relations between animal owners and the general public.

Communications Division

The College Station Police Department Communications Division is comprised of:

  • 21 Public Safety Telecommunicators
  • 3 Shift Supervisors
  • 1 Dispatch Assistant
  • 1 Communications Manager

Like those we serve, we're in operation 7 days a week, 24 hours a day.

All of our personnel are, as a requirement of law, certified and licensed by the Texas Commission on Law Enforcement as Telecommunicators.

We are also a CALEA (Commission of Accreditation for Law Enforcement) Accredited communications center. We were the first accredited communications center in the state of Texas and one of only 67 in the nation.

Through constant ongoing training, a thorough Quality Management Reporting process and a public impact survey process unique to our agency, we endeavor to uphold the values and accomplish the goals of the Department.

More than responding to emergencies, we take a proactive approach to public safety. We have a Public Education committee that is responsible for the delivery of presentations to civic groups, school classrooms, special events, homeowners associations, and others. Explaining what it is we do, how we do it, and most importantly, what's expected of you in the event you might need to call 9-1-1.

If you'd like us to come to your event or have any comments, questions or suggestions, please feel free to contact us!
