We serve a small community with a population of approximately 250 people. Although we are a small department we are staffed with good officers with many years of experience combined. We strive to be well trained and knowledgeable about the various laws of the state of Texas. Feel free to call and report any problem you see. I am honored to be part of the Oak Ridge Police Department. I am very proud of the job the members of this department do.
