Sgt. Sabrina Naulings

Sgt. Sabrina Naulings has been a member of Team HISD since 1994, but her path to a career in law enforcement was hardly straightforward. She served briefly as a temporary clerk in the Benefits Department, but has been with the district’s Police Department ever since. Sgt. Naulings became a police officer in 2006 and earned both her master’s degree in criminology and her peace officer certification in 2013.

“I actually made the decision to become an officer back in 1988, but at the time, HPD had closed their academy for two years, so I pursued other things,” explained the Jones High School alumna, who was also named Employee of the Month in July of 2008. “I didn’t think about it again until later, but God paves the way.”

One of the best things about her decision was “the open arms I got from other officers,” said Sgt. Naulings. “They were all so helpful and eager to offer their support. We really are a family.”

Sgt. Naulings officially marked her 20th anniversary with the district on July 31, but a few other employees are also marking theirs this week (July 27–31). See if you know anyone on this list:
