The housing authority has started paying city police officers to patrol public housing subdivisions.
The officers are being paid from authority funds, and the patrols are separate from their regular duties.
At last week’s City Council meeting, Lori Gonzales, the authority’s interim director, reported that the security program began Oct. 3 and the officers have patrolled a total of 69 hours. They have responded to 45 calls and have submitted five reports to the Police Department, she said.
