The Cushing ISD Police Department is a fully authorized agency by the State of Texas and established by the Cushing ISD School Board of Trustees in July of 2008. All CISD police officers are commissioned by the State of Texas with all legal power and authority granted them under the laws of the State of Texas and the United States of America. At this time, the Cushing ISD Police Department has two officers and is in the process of hiring a third. There is one full-time paid position that is filled by Chief of Police Shane Johnson and two part-time non-paid position filled by Officer Danielle Jaquez and retired NPD Officer Lisa Bradbury.
It is the mission of the Cushing ISD Police Department to maintain a safe and secure environment for students to learn and faculty to educate while forming partnerships with students, teachers, parents, and other interested parties in the community while enforcing laws and reducing fears. To achieve this mission, the Cushing ISD Police Department will establish pro-active goals and agendas to further enhance police services.
The Cushing ISD Police Department has established the Bearkat Information Line where students, staff, and members of the community can make reports of incidents that have been committed or are about to be committed. This is a way for students to let someone know about a potential problem without fear of retaliation from others. E-mail your information to the web link above.
Teens in the Driver Seat
Teens in the Driver Seat (TDS) is a natiional peer-to-peer program for young drivers. TDS program assessments show risk awareness levels increasing by up to 200 percent. Cell phone use at some TDS program schools has been shown to drop by 30 percent and seat belt use has gone by over 10 percent. In Texas, teen crash deaths are down 32 percent and the number of teenage drivers involved in fatal crashes has dropped 33 percent since the TDS program began. The recent decline in teen crash deaths in Texas is more than twice the national average. More than 200 schools in Texas now have implemented TDS programs. The program is now being deployed in two other states. The impressive growth of TDS, coupled with the rapid growth of social networking among teens, creates the potential for a "safety culture" among young people and the prospect of saving hundreds of lives each year. Officer Johnson would like to compliment Kimberly Stephens on the work she has done this year promoting this organization to her fellow students.
