Chief Ramon goes to Washington

(continued)

The police department is family oriented, always taking

care one of another. Although Ramon sometimes has to

say no to certain decisions, her decisions are always in

the best interest of everyone.

Her job has its challenges – she cooperates with police

departments in Kirby, Converse, Selma, Bexar County,

Universal City, Cibolo, San Antonio and Live Oak.

This year, Ramon established a new elementary patrol

program, where all the elementary schools in the area

are divided into four sections and one officer is as-

signed to protect a cluster of four elementary schools.

Officers assist traffic control, check campus, meet with

parents, provide resources, and with this new program,

the officers would have faster response time.

“We’re a well rounded and diverse group,” Ramon said.

“Many officers stay late. We appreciate their families.

We just work hard and strive for the best for JISD and

the community.”

Personally, Ramon is a big Fiesta enthusiast, collecting

all the medals and passing them out to others, trying to

spread the Fiesta spirit wherever she goes. She also en-

joys fishing on weekends and even competes in fishing

tournaments with her family.

Ramon has a 23-year-old daughter, a Judson alumni,

who works in East Central ISD, working her way to go

through the police academy herself. The Chief’s hus-

band, Joseph Ramon, is the

DA instructor at the alter-

native school.

Being a part of the Veter-

ans of Foreign Wars, Post

4676 in Universal City,

Ramon is the auxiliary

president while her hus-

band is commander, both

giving a lot of community

service for the veterans in

San Antonio.

She also is a member of is the Fisher House at Fort Sam

Houston, helping the foundation raise money for

wounded warriors. Ramon also finds time to serve as

the treasurer and the third vice-president for the Hispan-

ic American Police Command Officer’s Association.

“I always say life’s too short [and although] there’s

never enough time to get everything accomplished,”

Ramon said, “with the help of others, we try to get oth-

ers involved, to give back to the community.”
