Daniel Porter

Chief Porter comes to the city with over 35 years of law enforcement experience with agencies in both Dallas and Collin counties in north Texas.  His experience includes operations, investigations and departmental administration functions and held the rank of Division Commander at an agency in Dallas County.  He received degrees from the University of Texas at Dallas and Southern Methodist University. Chief Porter is a Master Peace Officer and holds certifications as a law enforcement instructor and Mental Health Officer.

Besides spending time with their three children and grand-children Chief Porter and his wife, Jean, are avid bicyclists and also enjoy motorcycle touring.  When asked about why he chose to apply for the chief’s position in Nolanville Chief Porter explained that his family arrived in the hill country of Texas in the late 1860’s so coming to Nolanville is like “coming home”.   His great-grandfather was a Texas Ranger in Llano County so coming to Nolanville is a continuation of that legacy of law enforcement in central Texas.

Chief Porter also explained that his goal was to join “a department that embraces community involvement and serving with pride and integrity.  Nolanville is a progressive and forward thinking city that provides a great opportunity for me to lead the department and develop a strong team that will serve and protect all of our citizens. I am extremely happy that I was chosen as the new chief and am excited to be part of such a strong and involved community”.
