    Vestibule Procedures

    Last school year the District added a new security feature at every ROISD campus. The Red Oak ISD Police Department implemented a vestibule security enhancement. Please watch this short video as ROISD Police Chief Kevin Denney highlights the features of the vestibule security system. 


    Red Oak ISD Police Badge

    ROISD Police Badge The Red Oak ISD Police Department were presented with new badges in 2017. The officers wore the same style badge since the Department’s inception in 2001. The  current badge includes the State of Texas inlaid with the Lone Star Flag with color added for the thin blue line and a small maroon star geographically placed for Red Oak ISD. Badges are an integral part of any law enforcement agency. Along with the ROISD Police Department’s rebranding of the patch and badge, they also began the tradition of assigning badge numbers to each officer. Chief Denney stated, “Each of the officers received a badge number based on their seniority within this Department. These numbers will continue consecutively with no numbers being repeated.” Police departments use uniforms, patches, and badges not only as a way to build identity to their particular agency but to also quickly distinguish officers from other law enforcement agencies.
