National Police Officers Week: Honor Our Blue

The Judson ISD Police Department is a group that provides an essential element to effective learning...safety.  Chief Teresa Ramon and her staff of officers are always looking at ways to make our campuses safer and more secure for students, staff, and parents.  National Police Officers Week (May 12-18) is a time to recognize the service they provide to our district and appreciate their constant efforts to improve what they do. They make sacrifices on a daily basis for all of us and it should not be taken for granted. While you're at it, when you are out and about at restaurants, coffee shops, shopping, or where ever you may be, if you see a police officer outside a campus, I'm sure they would appreciate a thank you, even if they don't know you. 

No Shave Donation Brings Dollars & Smiles

No Shave November has become sort of an "out-of-the-box" thinking fundraiser that speaks to a lot of guys.  The Judson ISD Police Department took on the challenge during the month of November and through the privilege of not shaving during the month raised $1,100. The check was presented to the Adult Years Vocational Program and their teacher Ms. Teresa Pena. It's the second year the Police Department has raised money like this. So despite a little more grizzly look among the officers, it was for a good cause and brought a lot of smiles.

JISD Yam Drive: Yammin' It Up For Jimenez Dinner

Each year the Raul Jimenez Thanksgiving Dinner feeds tens of thousands of citizens who might not otherwise have a place to go for a Thanksgiving meal.  Part of that meal depends on canned yams to make it that traditional meal that so many folks love. JISD each year launches a Yam Drive among all the campuses with 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place trophies being awarded.  It's a way of getting kids involved in giving to others and a great community opportunity at each campus.  The JISD Police Department heads up this drive each year and will be awarding the trophies after the November 15th deadline. 

JISD Police Chief Among 1st Responders A Year Ago

Post-landfall Harvey that hit the Texas coast with 130+ mph winds

When Hurricane Harvey struck the Texas coast in August of 2017, it devastated the area with 130 mph winds and torrential rains that ended up dumping catastrophic floods on southeast Texas.  On their own time, members of the JISD police department, including Chief Teresa Ramon, offered a helping hand to some 4,000 people at Port Aransas that lost their homes. A year later, in a ceremony honoring those who were the first to help and the victims themselves, a familiar face showed up there representing JISD...see if you can spot Chief.  CLICK HERE

Caring is all a part of Judson ISD...not just for our own, but those impacted by such disasters in other parts of our great state.
