“The only thing necessary for the triumph of evil is for good men to do nothing.”
- Edmund Burke
The Frenship Independent School District employs a full-time police department of Texas Commissioned Peace Officers, licensed by the Texas Commission On Law Enforcement. Texas Education Code Chapter 37.081 authorizes a school district to employ peace officers, such as a local government would employ peace officers. Frenship ISD officers' work during the regular school day, Monday thru Friday, between the hours of 07:30 am to 4:00 pm. As well as prescribed school-sponsored activities that vary the duty hours of an officer.
The department employs officers with a minimum of a TCOLE Intermediate peace officer certification. Officers also hold certifications as a Police Instructors, Basic Tactical Officer, and Basic to Advanced Investigator, Special Investigator, Hostage Negotiator and Gang Officer, as well as other training that specifically serves the district.
