The Humble ISD Police Department began in 1993, when Mr. Don
Maddox was hired by the district as security coordinator. In
January 1994, the Humble ISD board of trustees voted to make
application to the state for a school district police department
and the application was approved in February of the next year.
Don's title changed to Chief of Police, and several security
officers were hired.
In December, 2003, Mr. Maddox
retired and Captain Solomon Cook was promoted to Chief of Police.
Chief Cook has been with Humble ISD since 1996, and was a police
officer with the City of Humble before coming to Humble ISD.
The department has grown to
include 30 police officers and 5 security officers. The patrol
fleet has grown to 22 units including several Dodge Charger patrol
cars and Ford Expedition SUVs. Our
fully equipped, marked patrol vehicles are utilized 24 hours a day
by the patrol division. The police department personnel
patrol the district's facilities 24 hours a day, 7 days a week and
respond to alarms and calls for service. Our officers issue
citations, complete offense reports, and make arrests. Officers also provide security at district athletic
events and other campus functions. Our fleet also includes several
unmarked vehicles for investigations as well as three vehicles
that are assigned for use in the L.E.T.S. and G.R.E.A.T. programs.
The growth of
the district has called for the placement of full time police
officers at ALL of the district's high schools and one middle
school. A full time Security Officer has been
assigned to each high school to assist the campus officers with
parking and traffic as well as one Security Officer who is
assigned to Atascocita Middle School.
As with all law enforcement
agencies, continuous training is an important part of our police
department. Over a quarter of our district's police officers are
certified TCLEOSE instructors. In order to maintain our state license,
must complete 40 hours of training every 2 years. Chief Cook makes
every attempt to schedule these training classes during times when
school is not in session. Our Field Training Program
consists of a team of our highest trained officers, hand picked by
the Chief of Police, and then sent through a rigorous Field
Training Officer (FTO) school. After completion of this
school, the new Field Training Officers (FTOs) train new
officers. The FTO course is a 8 week course that each new
officer must complete. The FTOs train, guide, and critique
every new officer in every aspect of what is expected of them.
The FTOs report directly to the FTO commander, Sgt. T. Stanford,
who reports these findings directly to the Chief.
