Katy ISD Police Officers Honored for Demonstrating Bravery Behind the Badgehttp://www.katyisd.org/Lists/latestnews/DispForm.aspx?ID=917Katy ISD Police Officers Honored for Demonstrating Bravery Behind the Badge2018-06-01T19:37:47Z<div class="ExternalClass1CAFE9553AC94A3A93818D7B2E8A2052"><p><span style="text-align:justify;">This summer two Katy Independent School District students will enjoy their school break thanks to the quick thinking of three Katy ISD Police Officers.</span><span style="text-align:justify;">  </span><span style="text-align:justify;">Officer Christopher Pickering, Officer Michael Seiss and Officer Jose Gonzalez used their law enforcement and crisis management skills to save the lives of two students contemplating suicide.</span><span style="text-align:justify;">  </span><span style="text-align:justify;">Chief of Police Robert E. Jinks, along with his staff, honored them with the </span><em style="text-align:justify;">Chief's Meritorious Citation Award.</em><br></p><p style="text-align:justify;">On January 8, 2018, Officer Pickering was dispatched to a residence in reference to a possible suicidal student.  Officer Pickering's crisis intervention skills and his ability to develop a rapport with the student led to a voluntary mental health evaluation which saved the student's life.  After receiving treatment, the student informed the police department that Officer Pickering's dedication to his duty and his show of concern prevented him from taking his life that evening.</p><p style="text-align:justify;">On March 7, 2018, Officer Seiss and Officer Gonzalez were dispatched to Cinco Ranch High School in reference to a possible suicide.  Upon arriving both officers quickly assessed the severity of the incident and immediately began life-saving measures, that included creating a make-shift tourniquet with a leather belt, in order to halt the loss of blood from the victim. 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>

In their world, being able to connect and communicate 24/7 from just about any location is normal – and expected! Between kindergarten and fifth grade, kids go through rapid growth in learning about many topics, including digital media technologies. From playing games on their mom or dad's cell phone, to learning how to point and click a mouse, to navigating online by themselves, kids this age are participating in a connected culture.</p><p> </p><p> </p><p><strong>W</strong><strong>h</strong><strong>y</strong><strong> </strong><strong>Do</strong><strong>e</strong><strong>s</strong><strong> </strong><strong>I</strong><strong>t</strong><strong> </strong><strong>M</strong><strong>a</strong><strong>t</strong><strong>t</strong><strong>e</strong><strong>r?</strong></p><p> </p><p>Young children need to learn early how to make good choices so they can take advantage of the powerful technologies available to them. And to make these good choices, kids need parental guidance.</p><p> </p><img alt="" style="width:326px;margin:5px;" /><p>The stakes are high because our kids' technological abilities can be greater than their maturity and judgment. Having unrestricted access to information and people can result in gaining a wealth of information and experiences. But it can also mean accessing inappropriate content and making inappropriate contact with others. The difference between a great experience and an iffy one lies in the decisions kids make. Just as kids learn to eat properly, swim safely, or drive a car carefully, they need to know how to live in the digital world responsibly and respectfully. Their ultimate success depends on their abilities to use digital media to create, collaborate, and communicate well with others. Those who master these skills in using digital tools will benefit from the digital world's awesome power.</p><p> </p><p> </p><p><strong>co</strong><strong>m</strong><strong>mo</strong><strong>n</strong><strong> </strong><strong>se</strong><strong>n</strong><strong>s</strong><strong>e</strong><strong> </strong><strong>s</strong><strong>a</strong><strong>y</strong><strong>s</strong></p><p> </p><p><strong>Us</strong><strong>e </strong><strong> </strong><strong>bookmark</strong><strong>s</strong><strong> </strong><strong>an</strong><strong>d</strong><strong> </strong><strong>saf</strong><strong>e</strong><strong> </strong><strong>search</strong><strong>.</strong><strong> </strong>Teach your child to bookmark his or her favorite sites.

We want them to explore, enjoy, communicate, and create. We also want to be sure they are protected. If our kids are going to thrive with digital media, we must balance the negative with the positive, privacy with protection. As our children grow, they need more independence and privacy.

And we don't help our kids when we judge their lives through the lens of a non-digital world. It's important for us to understand that our kids will spend much of their lives in a connected world, where everyone creates and communicates. We need to help them to enjoy it and learn from it.</p><p><br></p><p> </p><p> </p><p> </p><p> </p><img alt="" style="width:174px;margin:5px;" /><img alt="" style="width:52px;margin:5px;" /><table cellspacing="0" width="100%" class="ms-rteTable-default"><tbody><tr><td class="ms-rteTable-default" style="width:100%;"><table cellspacing="0" width="100%" class="ms-rteTable-default"><tbody><tr><td class="ms-rteTable-default" style="width:100%;"><p>DIGITAL LIFE / TIP SHEET / DIGITAL LITERACY AND CITIZENSHIP  / REV DATE 2015</p><p><a href="http://www.commonsense.org/">w w w.commonsense.org  </a>|  CREATIVE COMMONS: AT TRIBUTION-NONCOMMERCIAL-SHAREALIKE</p></td></tr></tbody></table><p> </p></td></tr></tbody></table><table cellspacing="0" width="100%" class="ms-rteTable-default"><tbody><tr><td class="ms-rteTable-default" style="width:100%;"><table cellspacing="0" width="100%" class="ms-rteTable-default"><tbody><tr><td class="ms-rteTable-default" style="width:100%;">1</td></tr></tbody></table><p>​ </p></td></tr></tbody></table><p><br></p></div>
