Texas School Police Chiefs Learning Best Practices in Corpus Christi

CORPUS CHRISTI -- School district police chiefs from around the state are gathering for a conference here in Corpus Christi.

Today they trained on how to deal with sexting and online predators. They also had a debriefing about school shootings with officers who responded to the College Station shooting sharing case details.

CCISD'S chief tries to attend this conference each year, he says he really enjoys having it here. It has allowed him to bring more of his own staff along to learn best practices, among other things.

In all he has 37 sworn officers on staff.

"Well, there's two things," Warnke said of the conference, "there's the information that we get which is part of the lecture, but, then there's also the vendors that come in and show here's the latest greatest thing," he explained, "some of those actually could help us in our mission.

Warnke showed us some of the new gear that's available and said he hopes to get dash-cams and body cameras for his officers.

"Cameras that record our interaction is a good thing, it helps the police and it helps the citizens, that way there's no confusion about what happened," Warnke explained.
