Assistant Police Chief Lucretia Rogers
Assistant Police Chief Lucretia Rogers was sworn in as an HISD police officer in April 2014 and assigned to Washington High School, where she worked directly with school administrators to ensure a safe learning environment. After two years, she was promoted to detective with the department’s Investigations Bureau and tasked with heading all investigations involving crimes against children.
Prior to joining HISD, Rogers served as a patrol officer with the Brazos County Sheriff’s Department and as a reserve deputy for Brazos County Precinct 4. Her path to law enforcement was nontraditional. She worked as a correctional health professional after practicing as a nurse — a license she has held for 15 years.
A College Station native, Rogers holds a bachelor’s degree in Criminal Justice from the University of Houston-Downtown and a master’s degree in criminology from the University of Houston-Clear Lake. She is a licensed vocational nurse, holds an advanced peace officer certification, and is one of just a few HISD police officers certified in sexual assault and family violence.
