It's seen as a more efficient way of getting police presence where it's need at a time that it's needed. Judson ISD Police are hitting the campuses on bicycles. The San Antonio Police department has had its bike patrol for years, in fact they helped train 8 JISD officers in this specialty patrol. Bike patrol is a part of only a handful of San Antonio area school districts, but Chief Teresa Ramon says the two wheeled vehicles are a faster way of getting from point A to point B and improves visibility on campuses as well as big events like football games at Rutledge Stadium. The department has 10 bikes and will use them at several campuses in a number of patrol uses. You may think that riding a bike around is just a piece of cake, but there is important training that's specific to police work and just getting around safely through traffic and around crowds. The Judson ISD Police Department is always looking at new methods to keep people safe so everyone can learn and enjoy what ?they are doing.

When you're preparing to feed some 25,000 people on Thanksgiving Day like the Jimenez family, you have to have resources. The Judson ISD is proud to be one of those resources providing a hefty number of canned yams for Thanksgiving plates come time to eat the big meal. This is the second year for the drive and this time around the Judson ISD Police Department collected 1,500 cans of sweet potatoes. Of course this drive was also a challenge that went out to all the district campuses and organizations to see who could bring in the most and 1st place Olympia ES, 2nd place Wagner ROTC and 3rd place Hopkins ES.
