Public Safety Assistants provide a variety of services for the City of Sherman including a reporting system that is convenient and responsive to the public.
If you prefer the convenience of making a report by phone, you may contact our Communications Office at 903-892-7290 and be transferred to a Public Safety Assistant. If a PSA is not immediately available, the Communications Office will schedule you for the next available appointment and a PSA will contact you.
Public Safety Assistants make the community safer by reducing the non-emergency call load for patrol officers; however, you may request a Police Officer at anytime.
Public Safety Assistants generally respond to calls when:
the offense is not in progress;
there is no threat or danger to any person;
there are no suspects at, or in, the general area of the scene;
an immediate apprehension of the suspect cannot be made; or
there is a time delay in the reporting of the offense
Public Safety Assistants respond to:
Burglary of Motor Vehicles
Burglary of Coin Operated Machines
Check Forgeries (need copy of checks and Affidavit of Forgery from Bank)
Identity Theft (Documentation showing person's personal information was used to obtain credit without their knowledge or consent)
