On October 25, the Doña Ana County Commissioners gave a Proclamation designating November 26, as Ronnie Granados day in Dona Ana County. Sgt. Granados passed away after a brief illness on September 12, 2022. He was a Sergeant for the Doña Ana County Sheriff Office and Public Servant who started his career in law enforcement in 1990 as a codes enforcement officer. He transferred to the Doña Ana County Sheriff’s Office 5 years later, where he served with honor and integrity for the next 13 years, working as a patrol deputy, a detective, expert crime scene processor, and a member of the bike patrol. After retiring in 2008 as a sergeant, he returned four years later to do contract work as a D.A.R.E. and G.R.E.A.T. teacher. He started at Tombaugh Elementary, and then spent the next 25 years with LCPS students, Hatch Valley Public Schools and also in the Gadsden Independent School District. Being in the classroom was Ronnie's true passion, and tens of thousands of students will remember him fondly. The district is grateful for his service and sends our deepest condolences to his family.
