The Argyle Crime Control and Prevention District is a special purpose tax district created by Texas Code 363 for Texas tax law purposes. The CCPD funds crime prevention, education, and intervention initiatives for the Argyle Police Department.
The Town of Argyle first created the crime control and prevention district at an election held September 3, 2003 and the district and its local sales tax of one-fourth of one percent became effective January 1, 2004. The Town held a successful continuation election November 6, 2007 and continued the district and local tax for 15 years, effective January 1, 2009. On May 7, 2022, Argyle voters reauthorized the district and the one-fourth of one percent sales tax for a new fifteen-year term.
The crime control and prevention district is governed by a board of directors who reside within the Town of Argyle. Board members are approved by the Town Council and serve two-year staggered terms.
One of the functions of the CCPD is to celebrate our officers throughout the year, and especially during Police Appreciation Week. To assist with these efforts, or donate to the department, please use the link below:
