Ashley Martinez, Junior High School Resource Officer

Officer Martinez is a Freeport Texas native, who knew she wanted to be a police officer in the fourth grade when a female officer presented the D.A.R.E program. Her senior year of high school she knew she was not of age to go straight into policing so she enlisted into the US Army. She became interested in military service after 9/11. In her words, "I wanted to “go fight the bad guys and protect my homeland." Officer Martinez enlisted for 7 years in active duty and did two tours oversees in Iraq and Afghanistan, while assigned to the 82nd Airborne Division.

When her tour of duty was complete in 2011, she moved to San Marcos and applied to attend the Hays County Sheriff’s Peace Officer Academy. Following seven months of rigorous training, she earned the title of certified peace officer. HCSO hired her on the force and assigned her to the patrol unit. She has worked as a patrol officer in Dripping Springs, Wimberley, Buda, Kyle and San Marcos. She served the local area during the floods and is appreciateive for the gracious, helpful and appreciative community of Wimberley. She is serving her 8th year as a deputy with the HCSO and completing her first year as a School Resource Officer. Officer Martinez is presently working on an Associate of Science degree in Criminal Justice. In March of 2018, she earned the Community Service award, including recognition by the Texas Secretary of State.

Officer Martinez has a two-year-old daughter and knows how much all parents and family members love their children and want to know that they are safe when they are away from them.

She says, "It is my duty to Wimberley ISD to ensure that you know your children are going to be in a safe environment and have that comfort that they are being taken care of and watched over. Hays County Sheriff’s Office provides and ensures that their school officers receive the best training for this career, and I’m excited to have the opportunity to be at an awesome school like Danforth."
