Interim Chief of Police -
Joyce Pena  

Joyce Pena began her employment with the Balcones Heights Police Department thirty years ago, April 1984.  Not only was she the first full-time female officer she was commended for doing an outstanding job.  In August 1984 Officer Pena was named “Police Officer of the Quarter” by John Scanlon, 20th District Commander with the American Legion for her outstanding job as Patrol Officer.

 Approximately two years later in 1986, Officer Pena was promoted to Patrol Sergeant FTO (field training officer.)  In 1994, Officer Pena was assigned to Investigations where she is currently assigned as a Lieutenant in charge of investigations.

 In December 2004, Officer Pena was awarded “Outstanding Police Officer” from the Veterans of Foreign Wars – North Bexar County VFW Post 9603 in recognition for her outstanding work as a Patrol Sergeant and Sergeant Investigator.

 In February 2010 Pena was applauded with a letter of “Thanks and Appreciation” from Sherrie K. Tibbe, Hays County Criminal District Attorney in San Marcos, Texas for Lt. Pena’s outstanding work and dedication.  Pena will serve until a permanent police chief is hired.
