Los Alamos Police arrested Sgt. Jordan Redmond Oct. 8, at 2500 Trinity Dr., and charged him with engaging in an act for personal financial gain.
 
The arrest came following an internal investigation that began this past summer and concluded in September. According to the police report, Redmond was paid $300 Aug. 29, 2014 by UNM-LA for conducting two tours of the Justice Center. UNM-LA works in conjunction with Los Alamos High School and provides a Career Exploration Program, also known as the Early College High School Career Exploration Program.
 
Redmond, 32, served as the School Resource Officer at the high School at the time and according to the police report, was on duty and being paid by the police department when he conducted the tours, so was not entitled to receive payment from the college. 
 
Redmond stated in an email to the Los Alamos Daily Post following a request for comment, “I am not guilty of the charges. I believe the process will demonstrate my innocence.”
 
Deputy Police Chief Jason Wardlow-Herrera said Redmond is no longer employed by the police department.
 
A personnel board hearing is scheduled for next month to review this case.
