JISD Police Chief Teresa Ramon
Since 2010 Judson ISD Chief of Police Teresa Ramon has been at the helm of the district's security efforts. Her work and attention to staff and students and their safety is what makes her standout among her peers. She has been recommended by her professional association to participate on a White House panel focusing on women and the criminal justice system on March 30th. Chief will bring a load of experience...20 years...to the panel and is currently serving as the 3rd Vice President of the National Board of the Hispanic American Police Command Officers Association (HAPCOA). She is a great choice to serve on this White House panel and we know she will represent Judson ISD well. Congratulations.
There are some jobs that sometimes are both difficult and thankless...well students at Salinas Elementary School wanted to change that by saying thank you to local police officers. Salinas students made cards and staff whipped up some treats to area police departments to enjoy in honor of Police Appreciation Day. RTI Teacher Sara Lloyd organized the event and delivered the cards of thanks and the goodies to staff at Judson, UC, Converse, Live Oak and San Antonio Police Departments. You are appreciated for your service.
A fundamental element for effective learning is to make sure that students have a safe environment for instruction. That's at the heart of the 2015 School Based Law Enforcement Summit hosted by the Judson ISD Police Department at Wagner High School. School law enforcement members from around the state came to this event as a great training tool to look at new ways of addressing current and emerging safety and legal issues. The conference is developed and run by the Texas School Safety Center at Texas State University and offers this free training that is specific to the school campus setting. Issues like Positive School Climate (anti-bullying), Gang Intervention and Inappropriate Relationships were just some of the topics on which the event focused.
The two day event is paid for by the Office of the Governor and Criminal Justice Division and is invaluable for school police departments to pick up knowledge, training and skills on procedures and best practices that can help keep campuses safe for all students. It's a great way to work toward a safe and successful school year.
The Criminal Justice programs at both Wagner and Judson High Schools are on a roll with some great success at local and regional competitions. Both teams competed at the Texas Public Service Association regional contest at Manor High School near Austin. Wow...both came out doing really well placing in 22 events...AND advancing to the State level.
Wagner qualified for State in the following categories: Domestic Disturbance, Opening Statement, Crime Scene Investigation, Female Obstacle Course, Felony Traffic Stop, Defensive Tactics, First Responder, and Fire Fighter Agility Course.
Judson's team qualified for State by doing well in : Brain Bowl, Criminal Case Analysis, First Responder, Inmate Processing, Crime Scene Investigation, Fire Fighter Agility Course, Felony Traffic Stop, Traffic Stop, Disturbance Call, SWAT, and Building Search.
The congratulations not only go out to the students but also to the JISD Police Department who prepped the students to compete. Good luck at state!!
