Campus Police Have New Home



The Topeka Public Schools’ campus police department is in its new home at the former Avondale East Elementary School at 455 SE Golf Park.  The Chamber of Commerce Ambassadors were on hand to help with the ribbon cutting of the facility this afternoon.  Superintendent Dr. Julie Ford was joined by Topeka Police Chief Ron Miller and representatives of the Hi Crest Neighborhood and Safe Streets.  “This brings stability to the neighborhood to have our police department located here.  It is truly a wonderful facility for them.  They were in need of better facilities so it’s a win, win for us,” said Ford.  School officials are hoping that this is just the first step in having other community partners move to Avondale East to better serve the residents of that area.
