TUCSON, Ariz. (AP) - Pima Community College has named Manuel "Manny" Amado as its acting police chief.
He replaces Stella Bay, who retired after seven years at the Tucson school. Amado has 25 years of law enforcement experience and has served as police commander at Pima Community since 2004. As commander, he was second-in-command of the college's police department which has 38 full-time and 22 part-time employees. School officials say Amado developed Pima Community's campus watch program and has taught emergency preparedness and workplace safety.


"Since they are on the front lines, school bus drivers should get the same training and information as faculty," said Manny Amado, chief of police at Pima Community College in Tucson, Arizona.
"Bus drivers are with students much of the time and they should be kept in the loop." Amado addressed the symposium on lessons learned from dealing with former student Jared Loughner, who shot and wounded former U.S. Rep.


Pima Community College has named Manuel A. “Manny� Amado as Executive Director/Chief of Police of PCC’s Department of Public Safety.
For the past nine months, Amado served in the position in an acting capacity. As chief of PCC’s police department, he will lead 58 full-time employees and 16 part-time employees. “It is a privilege to serve with the fine men and women of our department,� Amado said. “As chief, it is my goal to see the department become increasingly student- and community-centered, while continuing to provide exemplary service.� A native Tucsonan, Amado is a 1981 graduate of Pueblo High School. He is an alumnus of PCC and was the first in his family to graduate from college. His father is an electrician for the Pasqua Yaqui Tribe and his mother, an immigrant from Mexico, worked as an office manager before her passing in 2009. Amado began at PCC in 1996 and has worked as Police Commander, Detective Lead, and Lead Officer at Downtown and Northwest campuses. Amado is a member of the National Association of Threat Assessment Professionals, PCC’s Behavioral Assessment Committee, and is lead instructor for Arizona Peace Officers Standards and Training (AZPOST) in ethics and integrity in law enforcement. Before working at PCC, he worked at the Pima County Sheriff’s Department as a deputy sheriff and traffic and collision investigator, and at the South Tucson Police Department as traffic unit supervisor. Amado recently received a master’s degree in Education/Human Relations from Northern Arizona University, and has begun work on a doctorate in Organizational Psychology. He also has been a longtime volunteer for the Special Olympics.

Acting PCC Police Chief Manny Amado said that the duties of a college police officer fall into a specialized policing model.
 “The officer must be knowledgeable in current law enforcement techniques as well as versed in the social sciences, and must truly be a ‘people person’ with a community policing mindset,� he said. “For this reason, Pima police officers are closely scrutinized during field training and beyond to make sure that they are a ‘good fit’ for Pima.


Police Chief Manny Amado supports the idea.
"We really should be more centralized, so that we can get to the campuses a lot quicker," he said. Amado said each campus substation should be more accessible and visible as well. Using more types of campus patrols Another recommendation was to "increase the use of foot patrol and bicycle patrols or other means of transportation beyond cars." Amado said non-vehicle patrols are in place. "Our bike patrol has been up and running again since last year, we have officers that go on foot patrol," he said. Amado foresees more emphasis on community policing, saying he and his officers are available for classroom presentations and town hall meetings. Doing so helps create transparency between the department and the community, he said. It is also important to give people safety tips, Amado added. "The more you reach out to them, the easier your job is," he said. One cost-effective way to provide safety tips would be using the marquees located on Pima campuses, Amado noted. Amado said that will make record-keeping more efficient. "It would take less time if the officer were able to type his report straight into a computer and then have it electronically sent to records," he said. Officers currently must park their police car and return to the office to type a report. The new system would provide officers with a mobile data computer. "If an officer can do that in a vehicle and still be visible, that's a lot better than being stuck in an office," Amado said. The mobile computers would also provide computerized information not now available and give officers more flexibility while on patrol, he said. Amado said his department is 100 percent committed to creating a safer place to learn and work. "We as a police department are committed to the safety and security of everyone on the college," he said.
