    Rules and Enrollment Standards 


    Welcome to the Houston ISD Police Department's Training Division. It is our goal to provide individuals with the highest quality of training possible. Recognizing that law enforcement needs change constantly, we aim to stay well-informed of such changes. The training staff of the Houston ISD Police Department is comprised of committed professionals who strive to ensure that the advanced training we provide continues to be vital in the law enforcement profession.

    Additionally, it is the intent of the Houston ISD Police Department to promote collaboration while developing harmony of purpose within the department as well as with other agencies involved in the management of criminal justice.

    Class Attendance: Houston ISD Police Officers have priority in class enrollment. No absences will be permitted unless excused by the training coordinator, or his/her designee, and then only if provisions for makeup exist. Tardiness will not be tolerated and will be subject to make up. Classes are subject to change due to circumstances beyond our control. If a student needs to cancel, we ask that notification is given at least three (3) days prior to class when possible.

    Class Attire: Agency uniform or appropriate civilian attire (polo style shirts) is suitable. No sleeveless shirts, t-shirts, shorts and/or overalls permitted.
