Hale Center's Finest
The Men of the HCPD

memorial
Chief Dennis Burton
I've been in law enforcement since 1985. I have worked for the Borger and Pampa Police Departments.  I am a graduate of West Texas State (now A&M) University from Canyon. I also had the privilege of attending the FBI National Academy at Quantico, Virginia.   I have a Master Peace Officer certificate from the Texas Commission on Law Enforcement Officer Standards and Education (TCLEOSE).  I teach Concealed Handgun Licensing (CHL) classes, which I will be offering here in Hale Center.  I like to hunt wild hogs, ride my motorcycle, spend time with my two grandsons, and walk my black lab (who is the mother to six puppies---need a free puppy?).   After living in my fifth wheel trailer for almost six months, I will finally be moving into a house here in Hale Center!

Chief Burton describes a "Reserve Officer" as a certified Peace Officer working in a voluntary capacity as needed, as a means of keeping their status as a Peace Officer, valid and current.
