Jordan Redmond is one of the newer police officers at the Los Alamos Police Department. His father is Bill Redmond of Los Alamos, who was a member of the U.S. House representing northern New Mexico’s 3rd District in 1997-98. He replaced Gov. Bill Richardson who was appointed Ambassador to the United Nations by President Bill Clinton.
“We weren’t surprised,” Bill Redmond said of his son joining the police force. “Jordan was an Eagle Scout and very committed to community service. He is one of the few Boy Scouts in the country to receive the National Heroism Award.”
When Redmond was 14, he and three other local Scouts were presented with the National Heroism Award for performing CPR on their scoutmaster who suddenly had a heart attack while the troop was on canoe trip in 1998.
“So becoming a police officer is in his character,” his father said.
LAPD Capt. Randy Foster describes Redmond as someone who stood out during the hiring process.
“We liked what we saw and feel he’ll be a real asset to the department,” Foster said.
Redmond, 26, explained that as a child he was interested in being a police officer.
“I became interested after watching ‘The Hunt for Red October’ and other Jack Ryan movies,” he said.
