Fairview operates its own police department, which consists of a chief, twelve full-time officers, and one reserve officer. Dispatch and jail services for the department are handled by the Collin County Sheriff's Office. The current chief of police is Granver Tolliver. Chief Tolliver has more than three decades of police experience, during which time he became the youngest ever deputy chief for the City of Dallas. In addition, he worked in Lockhart, Texas and as a deputy constable in Dallas County.

The Fairview Police Department promotes a service-oriented policing philosophy. Although safety is our number one concern, we truly care about how we deliver police service to our community. It is not uncommon to see a Fairview Police Officer assisting a stranded motorist or helping change a flat tire in the heat or cold.

It is our mission, to provide Fairview residents, business clientele, and visitors with a genuine sense of safety through presence, collaboration, crime prevention, enforcement, and personal assistance.
Our goal is to fulfill the mission by selecting superior quality individuals and providing them with excellent training, equipment, and guidance that exemplifies competence, friendliness and fairness.
Although our police department is small in size, we remain on the cutting edge of new technology, equipment, and training. In addition to providing basic patrol and traffic functions, many of our officers are crossed trained to perform specialized police functions as outlined below

Patrol / Traffic Units

Include marked police vehicles to provide safety for our streets and daily patrol in our neighborhoods to deter criminal activity and enhance community relations. 



(School Resource Officer) We have one police officer stationed at Sloan Creek Middle school to provide a safe teaching and learning environment for both staff and students.


Bike Patrol

Bicycle patrol officers provide police presence in our high foot traffic areas such as the Village at Fairview Shopping venue and patrol special events and neighborhood gatherings. Bicycle Patrol officers can maneuver in tight spots and crowded places with greater ease than Patrol vehicles.


Mounted Patrol

We have several uniformed police officers specifically trained to provide patrol and enforcement services from horseback. These officers mainly patrol special events and holiday shopping and participate in parades and ceremonies. The Mounted Patrol Unit is a true symbol of our town’s “Keeping it Country” motto.
