A Message from the Chief

It is my honor to lead the City of Palacios Police Department and to serve beside the men and women who protect this community so well. We will continue to serve this community with honor, integrity, professionalism, and fairness to everyone who lives and plays in Palacios.

I have known since I was five years old that I was going to be a police officer. My father was a police officer and I fondly recall a school event in kindergarten that he attended. The other kids in my class thought it was so special that my dad was a police officer. I watched them crowd around him to ask questions and see all the bells and whistles on his uniform. I was hooked.

Something similar occurred the first time my family made the 10-hour trek to Palacios from Pampa. We instantly knew this was the community where we were meant to be.

I take extreme pride in having an open-door policy for not only my fellow employees, but also anyone who has the need to speak with me. I enjoy and encourage feedback from anyone who is willing to provide it.

Most Sincerely,

Tobie Bias
