For the first time ever the UISD Police Department rewarded some officers with an awards ceremony. UISD Police Chief, Ray Garner, and UISD board members were on hand to hand out the awards to more than three hundred employees. Awards given were on the following categories: officer of the year, and supervisor of the year. Other awards included civilian of the year and the chief's award. Chief Garner says he will continue to award his officers every year. He says it will encourage them to keep up the good work.
