News:  Officer LaKedreia Johnson Retirement 

On Friday May 30, 2014 Officer LaKedreia Johnson retired from the College Station Police Department following 20 years of exceptional service.  A reception honoring Officer Johnson will be held in the City of College Station City Council Chambers at 1101 Texas Avenue on Friday June 6, 2014 from 2:00 pm to 4:00 pm.  All are invited to come out and honor her upon her retirement.  

Officer Johnson was born in Houston, Texas and is a 1991 graduate of Irving High School in Irving, Texas.  Our community benefitted greatly when she applied for and was hired as a police officer with the College Station Police Department in March 1994.  She began her law enforcement career upon completion of her academy and field training in March 1995 and was assigned to the Uniformed Patrol Division as a Patrol Officer.  

Officer Johnson continued her work as a Patrol Officer and a Community Oriented Policing Officer until her transfer to the Community Services Division as a DARE Instructor in 2000.  From that point until her retirement, Officer Johnson worked in the schools as a DARE Instructor, Teacher, School Resource Officer and mentor to thousands of children within the College Station Independent School District at College Station Middle School, A&M Consolidated Middle School and A&M Consolidated High School.  These daily interactions and opportunities have had an untold impact on many, many lives and are a reflection of Officer Johnson’s exceptional service to this community. 

During her time on patrol and in the schools, Officer Johnson did wonderful work that she was recognized for with multiple letters of commendation that included assisting a citizen in obtaining help and treatment for a drug problem, her professionalism, her dealing with a suicidal person, and her assistance in a burglary investigation.  She was a member of the College Station Police Department Unit of the Year in 1999, 2002 and 2005 and served on Presidential Inauguration details in January 2005 and 2009.  She was also honored as Crime Stopper Coordinator of the Year in 2011.  

Officer Johnson continued her education while working and raising a family receiving her Associates Degree from Blinn Junior College in 1998, a Bachelor of Science degree from Sam Houston State University in 2003 and a Masters of Education from Sam Houston State University in 2010.  During this time she promoted from Patrol Officer to Senior Officer 1 in 1998, to Senior Officer 2 in 1999, to Master Officer 1 in 2002, to Master Officer 2 in 2004 and received her Master Peace Officer Certificate from the Texas Commission on Law Enforcement in 2007.  

Officer Johnson has been married to her husband Mike (a Sergeant with the Texas A&M University Police Department) for almost 20 years and they have two children; Christopher who will be a Sophomore at Baylor University and Brianna who will be a Senior at Earl Rudder High School.  As she leaves the College Station Police Department, she carries a legacy of service, commitment and mentoring that will continue as she begins her career with the College Station Independent School District as an Assistant Principal at A&M Consolidated High School.  

The safety of our community does not have borders.  It is the goal of every law enforcement agency to protect the citizens that we serve.  Be the eyes and ears of your police department.  When you see suspicious activity contact the College Station Police Department at 979-764-3600 or the Texas A&M University Police Department at 979-845-2345; contact the Bryan Police Department or the Brazos County Sheriff’s Office at 979-361-3888.  Together we can make a difference in our community.
