The Support Services Division consists of specialized bureaus that
address a wide spectrum of police services. The functions of these
bureaus range from basic public services to the more
police-oriented operations in support of the Patrol Division such
as Communications and Fleet Operations.
Diversity and flexibility are the primary requisites of the
personnel assigned to the Support Services Division.
What does the Support Services do?
If the fleet is not maintained, a police
department simply cannot function. A patrol car that is not
running, or not running properly only endangers the lives of the
public as well as the officers that use these vehicles. It
is imperative that the emergency equipment that the officers rely
on every day is properly installed and functioning, thus creating
a faster response to calls of service. The
Support Services Division works closely with Humble ISD
transportation personnel to ensure that our fleet of over 25 vehicles are
working at their very best.
The Communications Division a a very
vital part of any police department. The very lives of
citizens and Police Officers can hinge on the decisions that a
communications officer makes. The Support Services Division
is responsible for the training records of all communications
personnel, as well as the maintenance of the dispatch radios,
OMNIXX Data Terminals, Video and Audio monitoring of equipped
campuses and more.
Support Services also maintains the hand-held radios, the mobile
radios (the ones in the police cars) and dash-cam video cameras
and their digital files.
Oversees all technical and computer related issues and
works closely with the Humble ISD Police Department in
implementation, development and advancement in such issues. The
bureau combines the working knowledge of a police officer and IT
skills to apply new technological advancements to the police
department that include desktop systems, laptop computers assigned
to Officers and Investigators as well as the MDTs (Mobile Data
Terminals) that are mounted in some of the patrol units. These MDT
systems were just acquired by the department in early 2008
utilizing funds granted to the Humble ISD Police Department from
the Harris County DA's Office as a result of a grant written by
the Support Services Division.
The Information and Technology Bureau is responsible
for the creation and maintenance of this web site.
The Humble ISD Police Department
Training Unit is responsible for maintaining commissioned and
civilian employees’ training, both mandatory and voluntary and the
records thereof. The training units primary responsibility is to
research, write and present all training to the officers of the
Humble ISD Police Department that is required by state statute and
departmental policy. This includes basic, advanced and in-service
training as well as legal reviews and officer safety
tactics/issues. The training unit reviews actual incident reports,
use of force reports and complaints along with state and federal
trends to tailor each years training to address these issues. The
unit also tracks each officers training and credit hours and
submits these to the Texas Commission of Law Enforcement Standards
and Education (TCLEOSE) which insures each officer remains state
certified. Training also manages and directs the field officer
training program which closely trains and monitors new police
officers during their probationary tenure.
Applies for the majority of the
grant funding and responsible for grant management for the entire
department. Recently, the Support Services Division was
responsible for the production of a successful grant request.
This grant, offered by the Harris County District Attorney's
Office, will provide funding for badly needed bullet proof vests,
mobile computers in the patrol units and new mobile radios for
those patrol units that don't currently have one.
Part Time Police Personnel
The Part Time
Police Officer Program is comprised of fully certified Texas Peace
Officers who work for the Humble ISD Police Department on a part
time basis. These officers are mostly professionals in other
occupations outside of the Law Enforcement arena including
business owners, full time fire fighters and medical personnel.
On their "off time" these officers provide countless hours of
service to the school district and the community by assisting full
time police personnel with many activities including: uniform
operational support, patrol division support, Emergency Response
Team, surveillance, house checks, and all athletic events.
throughout the year with the Humble ISD Department of Human
Resources, the training office actively recruits around the State.
The Recruiter strives to get the best possible police employees
and continually attends graduate classes at reputable colleges
specializing in police curriculum to seek out these quality
applicants. Also, the Recruiter provides new officers with their
required equipment, training, and administers and coordinates the
Field Training Officer and Evaluation Program and regulates the
recruit officer/FTO assignments.
All large district functions that need additional police
services are reviewed by the Special Events Unit. Here it is
what involvement is needed by the Humble ISD Police Department to
a safe event.
