Please welcome Chatham Central School District’s new School Resource Deputy (SRD), Ian Boehme. Deputy Boehme is an experienced SRD and someone who is very familiar with our school and community; he grew up here in Chatham and attended Chatham Central Schools.
“The position of a school resource deputy is so much more than a police presence within the school,” said Deputy Boehme. “I am here to build positive relationships with the students and to educate and advocate for them. I look forward to now being part of the Chatham Central Schools community in a way that I can provide a safe learning environment for the students.”
Deputy Boehme is a nine-year veteran with the Columbia County Sheriff’s Office and for the past three years served as SRD for the Taconic Hills Central School District. He is also a member of the Sheriff’s Office Accident Investigation Team and Marine Patrol. Before becoming ing a Deputy Sheriff, Boehme served two years with the Village of Chatham Police Department. After graduating from Chatham High School in 2004, he went on to receive a bachelor’s degree in Business Administration from Empire State College. He now lives in Gallatin with his wife Stephanie and their two dogs, Levi and Lilly. In his free time, Deputy Boehme enjoys a good round of golf and taking his dogs out for walks.
Deputy Boehme replaces former SRD K.C. Bauhoff, who the Sheriff’s Office promoted to Investigator this summer. We wish to congratulate Investigator Bauhoff on his new assignment and we look forward to having Deputy Boehme here on campus as part of our Chatham Central School District team.
Deputy Boehme’s time will be shared between the Chatham Central School District and the New Lebanon Central School District. The Sheriff’s Office currently provides this service at no cost to our school.
