The actions of these two officers were instrumental in saving his life. </p><p style="text-align:justify;">"Every day there is an abundance of heroism displayed by our officers throughout our campuses," said Chief Jinks.  "Although we don't often witness these acts of bravery, the work our law enforcement officers conduct at our schools proves to be a life-changing one," added Jinks. </p><p>The <em>Chief's Meritorious Citation Award</em> is presented to recognize and reward the actions of law enforcement officers and staff for their meritorious service to our school district.  This recognition reflects a commitment to the Katy ISD Police Department's core values which are <em>Integrity First, Service before Self and Excellence in All.</em><em>  </em>All three officers will now wear the merit pin as part of their uniform. </p><p style="text-align:center;"><img src="/PublishingImages/Lists/latestnews/AllItems/060118_Officer%20Christopher%20Pickering.jpg" alt="060118_Officer Christopher Pickering.jpg" style="margin:5px;" /> </p><p style="text-align:center;">Officer Christopher Pickering</p><p><br></p><p style="text-align:center;"><img src="/PublishingImages/Lists/latestnews/AllItems/060118_Officer%20Jose%20Gonzalez%20-%20smaller.jpg" alt="060118_Officer Jose Gonzalez - smaller.jpg" style="margin:5px;" /> </p><p style="text-align:center;">Officer Jose Gonzalez</p><p style="text-align:center;"><br></p><p style="text-align:center;"><img src="/PublishingImages/Lists/latestnews/AllItems/060118_Officer%20Michael%20Seiss%20-%20smaller.jpg" alt="060118_Officer Michael Seiss - smaller.jpg" style="margin:5px;" /><br></p><p style="text-align:center;">Officer Michael Seiss</p><p><br></p></div>
