Double Agent: Officer Michael Stewart

Switching sides from Wylie High, Officer Michael Stewart has moved into campus this year as one of the school resource officers. He is also one of the officers, with the Wylie Police Department, sponsoring the Practice of Leadership, Integrity, Character, and Education (P.O.L.I.C.E) Club, which includes students from East and High.

How long have you worked as an officer in the Wylie Police Department and how long have you been a school resource officer?

I have been with the Wylie Police Department for 12 Years and this is my 11th school year as a School Resource Officer.

Where have you worked in the past?

Before I was with Wylie Police Department I was in the Navy as a Master-At-Arms (Military Police) of eight years.

How is East different from High?

Besides it being different kids and different staff, the job is pretty much the same.

What do you like about your job and Wylie East?

I love getting to know the students and getting to have positive interactions with them every day, whether it is in the halls or watching them play sports or perform in whatever activity they are doing.

What is your favorite thing to do in your off time?

I love to watch football, and I am also a big movie buff and love going to the movies. My favorite thing is spending time with my family

What is the P.O.L.I.C.E Club and why do you sponsor it?

Sponsoring the P.O.L.I.C.E. Club is something I love to do. I created it almost 9 years ago as a way for students to get to know the Wylie Police Officers better and as a way for them to be able to get involved in their community. It has grown from 12 members the 1st year to over 100 members every year the past few years.

The P.O.L.I.C.E. (Practice of Leadership Integrity and Character Education) Club is an organization at the high school level available to Wylie ISD students in ninth through 12th grade. The club is sponsored by the Wylie Police Department’s School Resource Officers. The organization gives students a better understanding of the law enforcement profession from the local to the federal level. The organization also teaches students the importance of good leadership and character traits. The main purpose of the organization is to build better student leaders in our schools. This is done by educating the students on what it takes to be a good leader and how they as students have a major role in shaping the atmosphere of their school campus. This organization increases student involvement in their schools and in the community. It allows students to make a difference and change their community and schools for the better.
