I had a “Thought Leader” session at the Texas School Administrators Winter Conference in Austin the week before last. I was impressed, however, with the caliber of people who attended the session.
I was particularly glad to see Chief Alan Bragg from the Cypress-Fairbanks Police Department in attendance. Chief Bragg had brought me in to present about 15 years ago when he was the Chief of Police in another school district. As with his current assignment, Chief Bragg was brought in to build a new school district police department from the ground up. Chief Bragg is particularly skilled at blending excellent security technologies with great human practices.
It was great to have the opportunity to shake the hand of a dedicated advocate for the children who has built not just one, but two stellar school district police departments from the ground up.
