Police officers residing in mobile homes on Los Alamos Public Schools' properties is a deterrent that benefits the district, said the district's Director of Business Services John Wolfe during an interview Monday.
Wolfe explained that their presence helps stave off potential vandals when police officers residing in homes at Aspen, Chamisa and Pinon elementary schools and Los Alamos Middle School are seen making the rounds of the properties and parking their cars in their driveways.
Through the years a couple of the homes shifted to school personnel, he said, adding that the school board gave him and other district staff direction to bring the practice back around to police officers living in the homes.
"Board members Alison Beckman and Joan Ahlers volunteered to meet with Superintendent Mary McLeod, me and other staff to work out a way to make that happen," Wolfe said. "We received input from our attorney, which Mary tweaked and we gave the two school staff members a one year lease with the opportunity to come back to the board if they need a short term extension beyond that."
One staff members has sold his home at Pinon to a police officer, Wolfe said and the staff member residing in a home at LAMS is making arrangements to sell his property most likely within the next year.
