UPDATE: 10/3/2020

Assistant Police Chief Mark LiVigni said, “The Duncanville Police Department, as of October 1, 2020, has transitioned its detention services (jail operation) to the DeSoto Regional, or Tri-City, Jail located at 714 E. Beltline Road in DeSoto, Texas.

This change in operations was studied, presented to Duncanville City Council on June 8, 2020 and approved on August 18, 2020 as a means through which a substantial cost and operational efficiency is expected.

The City of Duncanville already partners with the City of DeSoto, as well as the City of Cedar Hill, on other regional efforts to maximize citizen tax dollars. Those include regional dispatch and the regional animal shelter.”

EFFECTIVE OCTOBER 1, 2020 AT 12:01am The Duncanville Police Department will no longer operate a holding facility/jail. Arrested persons will be housed at the Tri-City jail located at 714 E Beltline Rd. DeSoto, Texas 75115. You can contact the jail at 469-658-3081 or follow the link below for more information.
