Detective K. Salas’s interest in law enforcement began in high school when she completed the Junior Leadership program. In 2016, while still in the academy, her career in law enforcement started when she was recruited by The Conroe ISD Police Department.

Detective Salas received Officer of the Year for her district within her first year with the Conroe ISD Police Department.

After moving to Webster, she began her career with the Hitchcock Police Department in December 2018.

Detective Salas has almost 4 years of law enforcement experience, holds her Basic Peace Officer License, and is very close to advancing to her Intermediate Peace Officer License. Officer Salas holds an associate degree in Information Technology and is working toward a Criminal Justice Degree.
