The Police Department of the Ferris Independent School District exists to provide a full array of police services to our school community. Policing in an educational environment is a unique experience in that we join as partners with educators to ensure an environment that is conducive to the learning process.

Our Mission
The Mission of the Ferris Independent School District Police is to insure a positive learning environment which is free of crime, violence, or the threat of violence, and to uphold and enforce all applicable laws and regulations.

Safety Information: Identification Badges

Safety Tips for Students
  • Keep all unnecessary valuable items (iPods, MP3 players, DVD players, etc.) at home.
  • If valuables are brought to school, make sure that the items stay with you at all times.
  • Lock your valuables securely in a locked locker.
  • If you keep these items in your vehicle, place items out of view (in a glove compartment or trunk of vehicle).
Response to Emergency Incidents on Campus
A critical ingredient in the safe school recipe is the classroom response to an incident at school.  Weather events, fire, accidents, intruders and other threats to student safety are scenarios that are planned and trained for by students, teachers, staff and administration.  

Our school is expanding the safety program to include the Standard Response Protocol (SRP).  The SRP is based on these four actions. Lockout, Lockdown, Evacuate, and Shelter. In the event of an emergency, the action and appropriate direction will be called on the PA.

Please see the Parent and Student Handout on SRP for more information.
Student-Parent Reunification
Circumstances may occur at the school that require parents to pick up their students in a formalized, controlled release.  The process of controlled release is called a reunification and may be necessary due to weather, a power outage, hazmat or if a crisis occurs at the school. The Standard Reunification Method (SRM) is a protocol that makes this process more predictable and less chaotic for all involved.

Because a controlled release is not a typical end of school day event, a reunification may occur at a different location than the school a student attends. If this location is another school, then those students may be subject to a controlled release as well.  Student/Parent Reunification Circumstances may occur at the school that require parents to pick up their students in a formalized, controlled release.  

Please see the SRM Parent Handout for more information.
