Chief-ReyesToday, deputy chief Jesse Reyes is leaving his position in our neighborhood as deputy of the North Central station and transitioning to a new role with the Internal Affairs Division.

We interviewed Reyes four years ago, back when he just began his duties as deputy chief. Reyes shared about his desire to help people and how he’s also been a boxing judge and referee for over a decade.

We’ll keep you posted when we learn who our next deputy chief will be.

Below is a letter from Reyes to the community:

Effective Wednesday August 14th, I will leave my current assignment and transition to a new role with the Internal Affairs Division. I must acknowledge what a great honor it has been serving the residents of the North Central Division.

I truly enjoyed meeting and working closely with members of our crime watch community. Your dedication to volunteerism and community engagement led to many shared successes.

Most notably, we reduced overall crime during the five consecutive years in which I was privileged to be your Divisional Chief. A great collaborative accomplishment between officers and citizens.

I will fondly remember the many gracious hosts who opened their homes for crime watch meetings. In addition to the numerous parades and neighborhood events which enriched my time in this position.

My sincere appreciation for all efforts to improve the safety and quality of life in our city.

Jesse Reyes
Deputy Chief of Police
Dallas Police Department
