School Safety Committee Agenda and Minutes

Strengthening Community Safety: Active Shooter Training took place at the Falfurrias High School. July 3-4 was Active Attack Integrated Response (AAIR) and July 5-6 was an Active Shooter training. The sharing of resources among law enforcement agencies in Brooks County is vital to ensuring the safety and security of our district. The Advanced Law Enforcement Rapid Response Training (ALERRT) and Active Attack Integrated Response (AAIR) training focused on integrated response tactics, teaching officers how to coordinate with fire and EMS services during an active attack scenario. The participation of the Brooks County Constables and Sheriff’s Deputies in this training was a commendable effort towards enhancing their ability to respond effectively in crisis situations, thereby contributing to the safety of the children in this community.  

Special Recognition: Key Participants in Falfurrias Active Shooter Training- Brooks County Sheriff, Benny Martinez, sets a sterling example with his active involvement in this training. His dedication to staying updated on the latest law enforcement strategies is commendable and inspiring. He leads by example, reinforcing the importance of continuous learning within his team. County Deputy SRO, Eliza Gonzalez, also deserves special mention. Her participation underscores her commitment to fostering a safe and secure environment for the students she serves. Her efforts contribute significantly to the overall safety of our schools. Constables Alberto "Beto" Gonzalez of Pct. 1 and Ramiro Gonzalez of Pct. 2 have shown outstanding dedication through their involvement in this training. Their willingness to continually improve their skills is a testament to their commitment to their precincts and the wider community. Lastly, we acknowledge Safety Security Director JV Rivera for his participation in the training. His role is crucial in maintaining a safe and secure environment, and his commitment to professional development enhances his ability to fulfill this role effectively.
