The North Station has been a part of the Irving Police Department since 2002 when the city purchased the surrounding complex of buildings and gave one to the police. It’s located on Riverside Drive, nestled between Spring Trail Park and Campion Trails Park. The station has 19,773 square feet, and it’s been renovated early on with $1.5 million, all of which came from bond money.
The most notable moment of Irving PD came in February 2002, when the North/South split happened. From that moment on, all officers and other employees north of S.H. 183 started working as part of the North Patrol from North Station. Those south of this line began working for the Criminal Justice Center.
Another important event in the history of the police department occurred on Christmas Eve, 2000. Officer Aubrey Hawkins answered a call, but when he arrived at the location, he was shot down by escaped convicts. It turned out that these convicts were robbing a store, and Officier Hawkins caught them carrying stolen merchandise.
The media later called these the Texas Seven, and a manhunt was orchestrated to catch them. It didn’t take too long to capture six of them, while the seventh committed suicide. All of them were tried and ended up getting the death sentence. Four of them have been executed, while two are still waiting on Death Row.
