With a gun on his hip, a badge on his chest and a smile on his face Santa Rosa Sheriff’s Deputy Liem Chau started his first day at his new job Monday: Holley Navarre Middle School Resource Officer.

Resource Officer Liem Chau

The announcement that HNMS would be one of the first middle schools to receive a new resource officer was made by Sheriff Bob Johnson in October. The change is part of a countywide effort to phasing them back into the middle schools, two each year.

There has not been a resource officer walking the halls of HNMS since budget shortfalls eight years ago.

“I want to be a good role model, and be a force of good in the community,” Chau said of his new position.

Chau, who has experience as a teacher in Escambia County, was selected through a competitive application process said sheriff’s office Public Information Officer Rich Aloy. Chau has served as an officer for Santa Rosa for a year and a half and has undergone specialized training for his new role.
