The Tomball Police Department, in conjunction with the Tomball Independent School District, began utilizing D.A.R.E. in the late 1980’s. Since that time, D.A.R.E. has been well received. In 2005, TISD and TPD personnel assessed the needs of today’s youth and developed a new adaptive program to better serve and inform Tomball young people. The D.E.A.L. program, “delivering education and awareness for life” was implemented. Students in the program are taught life skills, decision-making processes, coping with both peer and personal pressure and accepting responsibility for one’s actions.
In an effort to provide Tomball Independent School District (T.I.S.D.) students with a safe and secure learning environment, T.I.S.D. and the Tomball Police Department, implemented the School Resource Officer (S.R.O.) program. The role of the S.R.O. is multi-faceted. SRO’s enforce federal, state and local laws on T.I.S.D. property as well as build lifelong supportive relationships with the students. The S.R.O. acts as a liaison between T.I.S.D. and Tomball Police Department and ensures an open line of communication between the entities, students, and parents.
In 2016, the S.R.O. program was also adopted into the Concordia Lutheran High School and Salem Lutheran Schools, with the addition of another officer position to meet the needs of their students, faculty and parents.
The S.R.O. provides parents with the opportunity to be involved and active in issues concerning the safety and welfare of their children. Annually, hundreds of students are instructed in tobacco awareness and personal choice safety in regards to current trends practiced by young people. In addition to instructing students, the S.R.O. provides numerous hours of instruction to school district faculty and administration.
With our dynamic society, the SRO has become a stabilizing factor in the educational and personal lives of the students, staff and faculty of the Tomball Independent School District.
