The mission of the Safe Schools Office is to provide the HISD Police Department and the school district with the presence of a select group of highly trained, skilled and qualified personnel to provide safety and security assessments for HISD schools and facilities.
It is the policy of the Houston Independent School District Police Department to maintain a fully operational Safe Schools Office to support the school district in identifying external and internal threats to the school learning environment. The School Safety Office supports the school district’s Threat Assessment Committee in making corrective recommendations regarding potential hazards at the campus based level.
Operations Officers assigned to the Safe Schools Office are CPTED certified. Security Officers assigned to the Safe Schools Office shall report to the Corporal over the School Safety Office. These officers shall meet with school administrators, faculty and staff, HISD administrators and other stakeholders to develop a threat assessment plan of action for each primary and secondary school.
We encourage members of the community to support our efforts by contacting us if you witness or become aware of any safety threats involving our schools. Information can be submitted through our anonymous reporting portal below.
