SFPS addresses security without on-campus police officers

SANTA FE, N.M. — Santa Fe Public Schools is looking to ramp up school safety measures at its 28 school sites, but they do not include placing armed police officers on campus – at least for now.

Superintendent Veronica García said this week that Mayor Alan Webber told her that the city’s police force didn’t have the manpower to assign three police officers at school campuses. The department, which employs about 160 police officers, is already spread thin, the mayor told her, and has about 24 vacancies.
