Katy ISD Participates in National Prescription Drug Take Back EventKaty ISD Participates in National Prescription Drug Take Back Event10/5/2018 8:25:36 PM<div class="ExternalClass73E2AE27FF3541F58B10767ED0BD9B25"><p><span style="text-align:justify;">The Katy ISD Police Department in partnership with the Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) will give the public an opportunity to safely dispose of potentially dangerous, expired, unused and unwanted prescription medications.  According to the DEA, pharmaceutical drugs can be just as dangerous as street drugs when taken without a prescription or a doctor's supervision.  Needles or sharp objects will not be accepted and any liquids must be in prescribed containers.  The service is free and anonymous, no questions asked.</span><br></p><p style="text-align:justify;">"Many families could be harboring dangerous prescription drugs in their own medicine cabinet without even knowing it," said Katy ISD Police Chief Robert Jinks.  "Not disposing of these medications creates an easy access for students to obtain and abuse this types of prescriptions.  Through the drug take back program residents have a better and safe option to dispose of these items," added Jinks.  </p><p>Rates of prescription drug abuse in the U.S. are alarmingly high, as are the number of accidental poisonings and overdoses due to these drugs.  Last April, Americans turned in 309 tons (over 617,000 pounds) of prescription drugs at nearly 5,500 sites operated by the DEA.  </p><p style="text-align:justify;"><strong>What:</strong><strong>           <br></strong><strong>National Prescription Drug Take Back Event</strong></p><p><strong>Where:</strong>         <br>Mark L.

Katy ISD Collaborates with FBI in Think Before You Post CampaignKaty ISD Collaborates with FBI in Think Before You Post Campaign9/21/2018 2:31:56 PM<div class="ExternalClass30B08DA3ECDC4FD78281ACC6C8A067BE"><p>​<span style="text-align:justify;">Hoax threats are not a joke.  This type of action can lead to serious legal consequences, even if there was never an intent to carry out the threat.  Katy Independent School District has joined forces with the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) Houston Division and various other law enforcement agencies to launch a public awareness campaign entitled #ThinkBeforeYouPost. </span></p><p style="text-align:justify;">Members of the Houston Police Department, the Harris County Sheriff's Office, police chiefs from Houston, Katy, Fort Bend and Aldine Independent School Districts as well as Crime Stoppers of Houston and Clear Channel Outdoor seek to educate the public about the consequences of making hoax threats of violence to schools and other public places.  Every threat is taken seriously and this type of behavior is considered a crime which can lead to a sentence of up to five years in prison, if escalated to a federal crime.  If a federal charge is not warranted, state charges can be considered.  </p><p style="text-align:justify;">"I would like to give a word of commendation to the federal authorities for putting together an effort including law enforcement agencies from area school districts. This is a campaign that creates awareness with young people and also with their parents," said Robert Jinks, Katy ISD Chief of Police.<br></p><p style="text-align:justify;">According to authorities, posting false threats through social media platforms or any electronic means, not only requires countless hours of investigation by law enforcement agencies but it also drains school resources and ends up costing taxpayers' money.   In some cases, schools shut down resulting in the loss of instructional time for students and teachers.  </p><p style="text-align:justify;">Misguided attempts at humor are no laughing matter and can end up ruining a student's future aspirations and career opportunities.  Katy ISD seeks the public's assistance to curb hoax threats among our student population.  Below you will find additional resources to share with family and friends.  Remember hoax threats are not a joke, so <span style="text-decoration:underline;"><strong>think before you post!​</strong></span></p><p style="text-align:justify;"><span style="text-decoration:underline;"><strong></strong></span><strong style="text-align:left;">Resources:</strong></p><ul><li><a href="https://www.fbi.gov/video-repository/think-before-you-post-psa.mp4/view">Think Before You Post PSA</a> </li><li><a href="https://www.fbi.gov/audio-repository/ftw-podcast-hoax-threats-campaign-052318.mp3/view">FBI, This Week: Campaign Addresses Consequences of Hoax Threats</a> </li><li><a href="https://www.fbi.gov/audio-repository/ftw-podcast-espanol-hoax-threats-campaign-053118.mp3/view">Esta Semana en el FBI: Por Medio de una Campaña se Abordan las Consecuencias de las Amenaza</a></li><li>​</li><li></li></ul><div><span style="font-size:14px;"><img src="/PublishingImages/Lists/latestnews/AllItems/Think%20Before%20You%20Post%20Picture.jpg" alt="Think Before You Post Picture.jpg" style="margin:5px;width:607px;" /><br></span></div><div><span style="font-size:14px;"><img src="/PublishingImages/Lists/latestnews/AllItems/Think%20Before%20You%20Post%20Picture2.jpg" alt="Think Before You Post Picture2.jpg" style="margin:5px;width:589px;" /><br></span></div><div><span style="font-size:14px;"><br></span></div></div>
