From Kyle Police – In the wake of yesterday’s tragic events at Robb Elementary School in Uvalde, the Kyle Police Department has directed patrol staff as well as officers from other assignments and divisions to make every effort to increase their presence at all of the school campuses in the city’s jurisdiction.

“We are working closely with our partner agencies and Hays CISD to keep our community safe and to provide a sense of comfort as our children return to school today, and for the rest of the school year,” Kyle Police Chief Jeff Barnett said.

Although Kyle Police Officers routinely patrol the areas around local schools throughout the year, the students, parents, and school officials will see a more deliberate presence on and around the campuses as schools wind down the school year this week.

Officers may perform a walk-through to check in with staff, they may park at or near the school to complete a police report using their in-car computers, or they may simply park nearby and be a visible sign of security.

The Kyle Police Department routinely performs standard response protocol drills with area law enforcement agencies and Hays CISD, to keep first responders and school staff prepared to respond in the event of an active shooter situation.
