Large majestic pine trees surround this quaint community which was once known for it's large agricultural trade back in the late 1800's and even more well known for it's wide open gambling houses back in the 1930's. 


In 2011, the Dickinson Police Department was recognized by the Texas Police Chiefs Association for compliance with the Texas Law Enforcement Best Practices Recognition Program

The Police Department consists of thirty-one full time and three part time officers.  Nine full time and six part time civilian employees augment the officers.
