    The district partners closely with the Burleson Police Department. We have armed school resource officers patrolling our campuses with officers present daily at our secondary campuses and frequently at our elementary campuses.

    As Burleson ISD continues to rely heavily on the experience and expertise of the Burleson Police Department (BPD), the district has appointed a sergeant to oversee the SRO program, provide support to all campuses, and offer training to staff and students during the school year. BPD has provided multiple trainings for BISD campus and district administrators.

The implementation of new, campus-specific procedures is in process. BFD continuously plans and assesses response models and procedures searching for ways to improve.
