Located at the beginning of the Hill Country and situated along many miles of coastline on Lake Travis, Lago Vista constantly attracts new residents. As the second largest city in Travis County by size, the demands on the city to offer services to its citizens is ever increasing. The Lago Vista Police Department has been serving the community since 1985 when the city first incorporated. Prior to that time, the city was a home owner's association and provided security services. The City and the Department are very community focused, and the small-town friendliness still remains as the city grows. The Department hires new officers throughout the year. Please feel free to print and fill-out the application (PDF) found below and submit it in person at the police headquarters. Before filling-out the application, please review the Officer Requirements document on this website.
