On Monday, armed security officers will be at schools in Rio Rancho. The school board is placing 12 armed guards across the district on a rotating basis. 

The officers themselves, most of them retired law enforcement, are already on the payroll. A new recently approved measure allows them to carry guns while on duty.

The district says school resource officers who are sworn members of the Rio Rancho Police force will also continue to be on duty at schools.
