The City of Oak Ridge Police Department began active patrol in November of 2017. Stephen Combs and Thomas Peoples volunteered and worked diligently for months to go through the process to establish a new department for the city. The police department, with the continued assistance of the Kaufman County Sheriff's Office and the Texas DPS, are responsible for patrol and investigative functions within the City of Oak Ridge.

We extend a big thanks to the Kaufman County Sheriff's Office, Kaufman Police Department and Terrell Police Department for all they have done and continue to do in order to assist us.
