The jurisdiction of SROS includes all territory within the boundaries of the school district and all property outside the boundaries of the district that is owned, leased, or rented by or otherwise under the control of the school district and the board of trustees that employ the peace officer. The Chief of Police for the school district police department is accountable to the district’s superintendent.

RACIAL PROFILING

Texas law strictly prohibits racial profiling; the Texas Code of Criminal Procedure defines racial profiling as “a law enforcement-initiated action based on the individual’s race, ethnicity, or national origin rather than on the individual’s behavior or on information identifying the individual as having engaged in criminal activity.”  The Fruitvale ISD Police Department prohibits officers from engaging in any type of racial profiling. Each officer has received Racial Profiling #3256 (TCOLE) training concerning the racial profiling law and are aalso provided a copy of departmental policy pertaining to racial profiling.  Racial profiling complaints may be filed according to information provided within the department’s website.

COMPLAINT POLICY

It is the policy of Fruitvale ISD Police Department to courteously receive and to investigate complaints concerning its employees.  Anyone filing a complaint must understand the importance of submitting their complaint in writing with their signature affixed. (The Texas Government Code, Section 614.022, requires all complaints against law enforcement officers be in writing and signed by the person making the complaint).  Complaints not in writing or made anonymously, may still be investigated, but are more difficult to process to an effective conclusion.


Upon receipt of a complaint, a notification will be prepared and sent to the complainant informing them the complaint is to be investigated and they will be contacted personally, if at all possible, by the investigator to discuss in detail the allegation(s) made against the police department employee.  The purpose of an investigation is to seek out the facts in a particular situation and to ascertain the truth.


Allegations contained in a formal complaint investigation may have one of four outcomes:

  • ExoneratedThe incident occurred, but was lawful and proper or was justified under the existing conditions.
  • Not SustainedThere is insufficient evidence to prove or disprove the allegation.
  • UnfoundedThe allegation is false, not factual.
  • SustainedThe allegation is supported by sufficient evidence.  At the final conclusion of a complaint investigation, the complainant will be advised of the outcome.

 

If a complainant deliberately gives false information causing an investigation, the accuser may be prosecuted for perjury under the appropriate Texas statutes.
