Mabank ISD uses the Standard Response Protocol (SRP) principles of planning, preparing, and practicing to deal with a variety of emergency events that could affect district campuses and facilities.  SRP is a nationally renowned program from the “i love u guys” Foundation.  It is used extensively across the United States by school districts, colleges & universities, businesses, and the Texas Safety School Center.  

SRP is taught to staff and students.  SRP provides an action-based approach to achieving a safer school environment through easily learned safety concepts.  SRP teaches five basic directives regarding emergencies: HOLD, SECURE, LOCKDOWN, EVACUATE, & SHELTER

Mabank ISD Police Department follows the 77th Texas Legislature’s mandate to prohibit racial profiling in Texas. Our police officers work under district policy and departmental regulations that are consistent with all state and federal laws as well as the Texas Police Chief Association Best Practices. Our departmental regulations include provisions for citizens' contact for a compliment and/or complaint on our officers. Mabank ISD Police Department realizes that occasionally there will be disagreements with individuals that come in contact with our officers.  These disagreements between citizens and officers need to be addressed. We trust that the vast majority of contacts between citizens and officers are conducted in a positive and professional manner. The relationship between the community and our officers is based on transparency and public trust.  We are only effective when we work together with the community to reach a common goal.  Citizens feeling that they have a legitimate concern may make a formal complaint to the Mabank ISD Police Department at any time by contacting any member of this department for information on the complaint process. Additional information about this process may be obtained by calling us at 903-880-1615 and asking for a supervisor or by emailing the Chief of Police at jdrich@mabankisd.net.
Mabank ISD Police Department would like to know about positive police contacts. Please write or email the Chief a letter or note to let him know about a positive contact with our officers. Chief Rich will let the officer know about your letter and a copy will be placed in the officer’s personnel folder. We are very proud of the relationship Mabank ISD Police Department shares with our community and we look forward to hearing from you.
