May 22, 2015—Three current and former CFISD Police Department representatives and community heroes were recognized for their exceptional service to the community by the Robert Rankin Chapter No. 62 of the Texas Society of the Sons of the American Revolution during a ceremony on May 13.
CFISD Chief of Police Alan Bragg, CFISD police officer Faladrick Brown and Deputy Cameron Brewer of the Harris County Precinct 4 Constables (and former CFISD officer) were honored.
Officers Brown and Brewer were recognized for their two years of police work at Cypress Springs High School in building relationships and helping to create a positive learning environment for students. Each received the Law Enforcement Medal and certificate.
They started a program known as “Thousand Guys in Ties” that has now grown to five CFISD campuses and more than 5,000 students. The program has stretched into a weeklong event at various campuses featuring outside speakers.
Chief Bragg was recognized on the occasion of the 20th anniversary of Salute to Law Enforcement, a program that he started. The day allows various law enforcement agencies and the public to come together for a community event in which fallen officers are recognized, scholarships are awarded and demonstrations are presented.
Over the last 20 years, the event has reached more than 50,000 members of the public, and each year more than 80 different agencies are represented.
“These recipients are true patriots and heroes in our community,” said Chapter Vice President Tom Jackson. “They have profound impacts in our neighborhoods and on our children. They make things better for everyone around them, and that’s exactly the spirit that the leaders, soldiers, merchants and laymen of the American Revolution would have appreciated.”
