Safety & Security

The Alamogordo Public Schools Safety and Security department is charged with the protection of the students, staff, and assets of the Alamogordo Public School district. Our mission encompasses both the physical security of the district as well as occupational safety. We work closely with local, state, and federal agencies to ensure that our school district meets regulatory requirements and utilizes preventative safety measures.

In addition to Campus Security Officers assigned throughout the District, School Resource Officers are assigned permanently at our secondary schools. Through a contractual agreement with the Alamogordo Police Department, uniformed police officers are assigned to our local secondary schools in a law enforcement capacity. The Chief of Safety and Security works closely with the Alamogordo Police Department to facilitate the elements of our integrated proactive security initiative. 

Alamogordo Public Schools employs 27 full-time School Security Officers. One officer is assigned to each elementary school and Holloman Middle School, three officers at Mountain View Middle School and Chaparral Middle School, nine officers at Alamogordo High School, and one night officer. Many security officers are retired law enforcement and military with decades of experience. 

As required by law, Alamogordo Public Schools has an Emergency Response Plan to inform personnel of necessary action to take in the event of a critical incident. The plan is based upon the standards assigned by the New Mexico Public Education Department and FEMA. All schools within the district are regularly required to participate in emergency drills to be prepared for a crisis situation.

The safety and security of students and staff are a top priority in Alamogordo Public Schools.
