The Wylie ISD P.O.L.I.C.E. (Practice of Leadership Integrity and Character Education) Club has been recognized by Texas School Safety Center’s Spotlight Program. This recognizes individuals, schools and districts that foster education and learning through safe and secure campuses. Quarterly recipients will be considered for our annual overall awards presented at the Texas School Safety Conference in June 2019.

The P.O.L.I.C.E. Club is an organization for Wylie ISD students in grades 9-12 that is sponsored by the Wylie Police Department's School Resource Officers. The club provides students a better understanding of the law enforcement profession from the local to the federal level and strives to develop student leaders. Now in its sixth year, the club currently has 85 members who will serve at more than 35 community events. The P.O.L.I.C.E. Club gives students a voice in dealing with issues in their schools. The club encourages students to form positive relationships with their School Resource Officers which makes for a more positive and safer school environment for all.
