FORT HOOD (AP) - The two Fort Hood police officers who responded first to the 2009 shooting rampage are no longer working on the Texas Army post.

Sgt. Mark Todd, lauded for stopping the gunman, left the police force to work as an overseas contractor. Fort Hood officials say Kimberly Munley requested to be on unpaid leave.

They were civilian officers on Fort Hood’s police force. The Austin American-Statesman reports Monday that Fort Hood’s civilian officers hired year-to-year will not have their jobs renewed as part of broader military budget cuts.

Army officials say more soldiers returning from overseas will work as military police officers. They say Fort Hood’s security won’t be reduced.

Army psychiatrist Maj. Nidal Hasan faces the death penalty if convicted in the shootings that killed 13.
