Greenville ISD Police Department Resolution Approved
On July 19th at the regular board meeting of the
Greenville ISD Board of Trustees, a resolution was unanimously passed to create
a GISD Police Department. The approval of the resolution prompted the posting
of the Director of School Security position on July 20th. The
posting will remain active for twelve days and is posted on the Texas
Commission of Law Enforcement, Region 8, and Region 10 websites.
The Director of School Security will be hired at a called board
meeting on August 2nd to conduct a district safety needs assessment and to
oversee the development of the Greenville ISD Police Department. After
successful completion of these tasks and approval by the Texas Commission on
Law Enforcement, it is the intent for the Director of School Security to become
Greenville ISD Chief of Police and to hire two additional officers.
Greenville ISD will continue to follow advice from the
district’s attorney, regulations of the Texas Commission on Law Enforcement,
and procedures of the Texas Education Agency to create the GISD Police
Department. A Greenville ISD Police Department formation committee consisting
of community members, parent representatives and a law enforcement
representative has met once to review department plans and procedures. The
formation committee will meet two additional times to further vet and polish
details of the program.
