The Colorado Association of School Resource Officers named Adams City High School campus safety director Lloyd Martinez as public safety official of the year.

Martinez, who graduated from ACHS in 1982, has been a safety officer in the Adams 14 School District for 22 years. He received the award from a first responder to the 1999 Columbine High School shooting. A Facebook post said Martinez was honored but he wouldn’t be distracted from his main duty.

“I’m not here to win awards,” he said, “But to focus on the safety and security of students and staff.”
