The Alamo Police Department is constantly striving to create a society for our citizens that is free from crime and disorder. However, recognizing that this will always be an unachievable ideal, we have prepared a primary and secondary list of objectives:

  • Primary Objectives
    • Prevent crime
    • Identify and apprehend persons who have committed a crime
    • Recover stolen property and return it to its rightful owner
    • Enforce compliance with traffic laws and city ordinances
    • Handle juveniles in accordance with Texas family code
  • Secondary Objectives
    • Educate the public in crime prevention techniques
    • Perform public relations

In order to achieve these goals, the Alamo Police Department works closely with the City Commission, Fire Department, Streets Department and the Public Works Department.

Open Carry

HB 1927 Effective September 1, 2021

Caption: Relating to provisions governing the carrying of a firearm by a person who is 21 years of age or older and not otherwise prohibited by state or federal law from possessing the firearm and to other provisions related to the carrying, possessing, transporting, or storing of a firearm or other weapon; creating criminal offenses.

Authorizes the unlicensed carrying of firearms by a person who is 21 years of age or older and not otherwise prohibited by state or federal law from possessing the firearm.
Also addresses specific prohibited locations and the manner in which firearms may be carried.
Amends Penal Code Section 30.05 to authorize the posting of a sign by a property owner to exclude the possession of unlicensed firearms (licensed handgun possession remains a defense to prosecution).
Unlicensed carry on the physical premises of schools and educational institutions is prohibited under Penal Code Section 46.03. Does not change the “campus carry” provisions requiring possession of an LTC and requiring the license holder carry concealed.
License holders who accidentally carry a handgun in the security area of an airport are provided a defense to prosecution not available to unlicensed carriers. Additionally, arrest of a license holder is prohibited if the individual exits the area immediately upon notification.
Prohibitions against carrying in alcohol establishments (51%), hospitals, amusement parks, or collegiate sporting events, do not apply to LTC holders if they are not provided effective notice. Notice is not otherwise required to prohibit unlicensed carry in these locations.

Please make proper arrangements when planning to conduct business at city facilities. For more information visit the DPS website.
