Texas School District Police Chiefs' Association
Texas School District Police Chiefs' Association
  • Our History
    The Texas School District Police Chiefs Association began in 1996 when a group of school district police chiefs from Houston and the surrounding area held a luncheon for the purpose of discussing mutual concerns and sharing ideas. 

    The chiefs continued to have quarterly meetings, on an informal basis, until the decision was made in 1997 to form the Southeast Texas School District Police Chiefs Association.  The intent of the group was to promote the professionalizing of school district policing and to collectively resolve problems faced by these law enforcement agencies.  During this time, school district police departments were a relatively new concept and many were experiencing problems associated with non-traditional police organizations.

    In furtherance of the goal of professionalizing school district policing, the Association sponsored its first annual training conference in 1998.  The event was held at the Aldine School District in Harris County and attracted over 100 participants from many parts of the state.  The conference was such a success that it has continued to be held each year.

    In 2001, the group voted to change the name to the Texas School District Police Chiefs Association in order to promote the standardization of school district policing on a statewide basis.
