The Killeen ISD Police Department is committed to protecting our future by providing a safe and positive educational environment for students, staff, and other shareholders in order for students to learn at their maximum potential.
In 1989, the Killeen Independent School District established the district's police departments to provide law enforcement services to the district's two high schools. The department has since grown from 2 officers to 26 officers including the Chief of Police. Officers are licensed by the Texas Commission on Law Enforcement (TCOLE) and have police powers on district property and within the district's boundaries. These officers provide police services for all KISD schools and departments located in Killeen, Harker Heights, and Nolanville. The District schools on Fort Hood are supported by the Ft. Hood Military Police.
During the school day, officers are assigned to various campuses or patrol to provide a safe and secure environment for all students, staff and visitors. In addition, officers provide law enforcement services throughout the district at various extracurricular events and programs.
It is the policy of the Killeen Independent School District (KISD) Police Department to manage its employees and resources in a manner that maximizes departmental operations, efficiency and service while supporting the mission of the organization. The officers of the Department are dedicated to a set of values which will guide the agency in providing a quality education for all stakeholders.
The primary duties of District police officers shall be to perform law enforcement functions for the District that aid in protecting the safety and welfare of any person engaged in the educational process within the police officer's jurisdiction and in protecting the property, real and personal, of the District. In performance of these primary duties, police officers shall first attend to protecting persons and assets on school-owned property, and second, shall attend to protecting students, school personnel, and District personal property (assets) off District property but within the jurisdiction of the police officers.
