The Keller Police Department premiered its Guardian Award at this week's City Council meeting, honoring officer Tim Ulrich with the new, highest award conferred on an officer for actions outside of the line of duty.
“Officer Ulrich’s actions define love of community and the Guardian’s role in caring for those who cannot care for themselves through sacrifice of time and resources,” Chief Mike Wilson said.
Ulrich’s honor comes two years after the officer first met a Keller resident and military veteran who’d called 9-1-1 for assistance. A veteran himself, Ulrich chatted with the gentleman and left behind his contact information, saying to call him if he needed assistance — or just wanted to chat — in the future.
Keller ISD is hosting a Technology Drive from November 14, 2016, through January 12, 2017, allowing the community to donate their old devices to supplement campus technology resources.
The Drive will accept WiFi-capable smart phones, tablets, laptops, and even desktop computers, with an emphasis on mobile devices like phones and tablets. Devices donated will be refurbished by Keller ISD Career and Technical Education students, then distributed to campuses to check out to classrooms and students who request them.
Don't let that old device collect dust on a shelf or be thrown away; donate to the Keller ISD Technology Drive beginning November 14. Devices can be donated at any Keller ISD front office. Before donating, be sure you have restored the device to factory default settings and include any charging cables.
