Officer on School Bus Detail

The Killeen Police Department has received several complaints regarding motorists failing to stop for school buses picking up and dropping off students along various bus routes.  In addition to being a violation of state law (TRC 545.066), this represents a serious safety concern for the children in our community. 

To address this concern the department has partnered with Killeen Independent School District and will conduct a traffic enforcement detail.  In this detail, an officer will ride on a school bus and notify other officers in the area of violators.  Those officers will strictly enforce laws related to the failure to stop for school buses.  The first of these details will take place on Wednesday, February 12, 2020 from 6:00 a.m. to 9:00 a.m., along a school bus route in the northeast sector of Killeen.

Citizens are encouraged to comply with all laws, and asked to pay particular attention to their surroundings while operating a vehicle in proximity to a school bus.
