About Humble ISD Police

Our History

The Humble ISD Police Department began in 1993, when Mr. Don Maddox was hired by the district to take the position of Security Coordinator.

In January 1994, the Humble ISD board of trustees voted to submit an application to the state to acquire a school district police department, and the application was approved in February of the next year. Don's title then changed to Chief of Police, and several security officers were hired.

Mr. Don Maddox retired in December of 2003, after serving 10 years as Chief of Police, and Captain Solomon Cook who had been with the department since 1996, was promoted to Chief of Police. Chief Solomon Cook continues to serves as the Chief of  Police.  

As of 2018, the department has grown to consist of 22 fleet units and more than 60 employees; including 49 police officers, 6 security officers, 5 dispatchers, and numerous other civilian employees.

The police department  patrol the district facilities 24 hours a day, 7 days a week and respond to alarms and calls for service.
