In 2022, SMPD transitioned to a new records management system. We are now pleased to announce that our new online crime tracking tool, Hays County Citizen Connect, is live! This new tool was developed in partnership with Hays County and surrounding police entities, including Kyle Police Department, Buda Police Department, and Texas State University Police Department. Because of this partnership, we are able to share incident and arrest information across cities. It additionally allows citizens to create alerts to stay up-to-date on crime events throughout the county.
