Meet Your District 49 SRO's
Officer Joe Langlais
I have been an officer with the Colorado Springs Police Department since 2008. I started as a patrol officer in the Sand Creek Division before being selected to serve on the IMPACT team. I applied and was selected to serve as the SRO at Vista Ridge HS in 2014 and have served in that capacity ever since.
Prior to joining the CSPD, I served as an Infantry Officer in the US Army. I have been assigned to Ft Knox, Ft Benning, and Ft Carson and deployed to Iraq two times. I have a bachelor's degree in Aviation Management.
I grew up all along the east coast and in my spare time I enjoy hiking, mountain biking, rock climbing, and traveling. In 2018, I completed my dream trip, a trek to the Mt Everest base camp. I became an SRO because I enjoy working with teenagers and helping them to achieve their goals. Working with kids every day is rewarding and helps me feel like I am making a positive impact in the lives of others.

Officer Dean Baird
I’ve been a police officer since 2018. I was selected to be in the School Resource Officer Unit in 2020, and am assigned to Sand Creek high school. I became an SRO because I enjoy working with kids and being a part of the school community.
Before I was a police officer I was an enlisted infantryman soldier with the United States Army. I was Ranger qualified, an Expert Infantryman badge carrier, an air assault badge carrier, and a Drill Sergeant. I was stationed in Colorado, Hawaii, and New York. I deployed to South Korea and Afghanistan.
I graduated Cum Laude with a baccalaureate degree in Science with an emphasis in Exercise Science, health promotion, and recreation. I also earned a minor in education from Colorado State University of Pueblo. I was a college athlete and ran track and field for Adams State University.
