Posted: Tuesday, June 25, 2013 3:32 pm
Pima Community College has named Commander Manuel "Manny" Amado Acting Executive Director/Chief of Police of PCC's Department of Public Safety.
Amado has 25 years of law enforcement experience, and has served as Commander since October 2004. As Commander, Amado was second-in-command of PCC's police department, which comprises 38 full-time and 22 part-time employees.
"Ensuring public safety at a college requires specialized policing by individuals who sincerely wish to make a difference in the community," Amado says. "It is a privilege to lead a dedicated, compassionate department that takes part in the education of our citizens through public safety."
Amado began at PCC in September 1996 as a Lead Police Officer/Campus Liaison. In January 2004, he became Lead Police Officer/Detective. He served as Acting Police Chief for three months in 2007. Amado developed PCC's Campus Watch program and has taught emergency preparedness and workplace safety.
He 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.
Amado replaces Chief Stella Bay, who retired on June 21 after seven years at PCC and 38 years in law enforcement.

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.

Manuel "Manny" Amado was studying to become a priest until his uncle introduced him to law enforcement.
Amado changed careers, and has worked for 25 years in law enforcement. He joined Pima Community College's Department of Public Safety in 1996.
"The 17 years that I've been here at Pima have been the most productive, because this truly is a good fit for me: serving the students, serving the staff, community policing and reaching out to our constituency," he said.
"Law enforcement has always been more than writing a ticket, making an arrest, or getting stats," he added. "It's about doing a service to the community."
Amado was named PCC's acting police chief in June after long-time chief Stella Bay retired.

In 2004, Amado jumped from lead officer to commander, which is the department's No. 2 position.
As acting chief, his position is not yet permanent, but his objective is clear.
"For as long as I have the privilege of holding this title, I will make whatever difference that I can," he said.
During his years at Pima, "the institution as a whole has been more progressive, " Amado said. He believes the police department had become more community focused, and more attentive to students.
"When you come to Pima, you're our responsibility," he said. "Your safety is our responsibility."
Implementing emergency notification systems was a major step, he said, and more improvements are under way.
As part of the new security plans, the police department plans to hire five employees this year and five the next year.
Potential employees must be the right fit, Amado said. "I will not settle for just a body, I will not settle for just another police officer."
He expressed deep confidence in his current team, which included 38 full-time and 22 part-time employees.
"They are some of the best I have ever worked with," Amado said.

Her young son showed his appreciation by hugging Amado's leg.
Amado told the grateful woman that "it's what we do," but says the incident showed him that he was made for law enforcement.
Seeing people happy and appreciative provides needed fuel even when he's tired, he said. "That's what keeps police officers going."
