The Spring Independent School District Police Department has been creating a safe and secure environment for students and staff since January 2, 1991.
The Department operates 24 hours a day, 365 days a year with the help of 46 licensed police officers, 6 police dispatchers and 2 civilian workers under the direction of Spring ISD Police Chief Victor Mitchell. Some of the officers are assigned to various schools, patrol duties or communications, while others work as truancy officers, incident investigators or canine officers.
No matter what position an officer is assigned, all police officers work toward a common District goal of developing students who excel academically, reason and solve problems rationally, and act responsibly by displaying good character and citizenship. Key to this goal being accomplished is the continued assurance of a safe learning and working environment for students and staff while maintaining a "Zero Tolerance" position regarding drugs and alcohol, weapons, gang-related activities, all types of assault, intolerance and sexual harassment.
"Detective Emmy", a yellow Labrador Retriever, is used to conduct searches capable of detecting marijuana, cocaine, heroin, methamphetamines, alcohol, and gunpowder on all Spring ISD campuses. "Detective Emmy" is also used for demonstrations and crime prevention education programs in the classroom as well as personal appearances at community functions.
The Spring ISD Police Department is a participating partner with the National Center for Missing & Exploited Children.
