Wills Point ISD Police Department
My name is Tim Scharfenberg, and I am your newly appointed Chief of Police for the Wills Point Independent School District Police Department. My family and I are current and longstanding members of the Wills Point Community, and I am proud to serve you in my new role and capacity in the district.
I began my career in public service twenty nine years ago when I joined the United States Air Force. I thoroughly enjoyed my time in the Military and feel it helped reinforce core values my parents had instilled in me from a young age, those values being respect, responsibility, duty and dedication to service. It even helped me to mature a bit. Although my time was well spent serving our Great Nation, I felt I was being called in another direction.
I soon separated from military service, relocated to the East Texas Area and immediately attended the East Texas Police Academy. Therein started a law enforcement career which has spanned the past twenty-five years. I have served in the roles of patrol officer, Corporal, Sergeant, Criminal Investigator, Detective, Captain and now Chief of Police. I started my Law Enforcement Career right here in Wills Point Texas with the Wills Point Police Department. After serving many years as a patrol officer I accepted a position in the Metroplex as a Criminal Investigator for the Dallas County District Attorneys Office. After service in that role, I worked a short time in the private sector in New Orleans LA after Hurricane Katrina, and then returned to the East Texas area, serving many years with the Van Police Department and most recently the Van Zandt County Sheriff’s Office. I have served with some outstanding law enforcement officers over the span of my career and continue to work with some outstanding individuals to this day.
