Duties and Responsibilities
We provide 24-hour-a-day patrol protection to the campus property, parking lots, and residence halls, as well as full patrols in
the 20,000-acre field laboratory of the Energetic Materials Research and Testing Center.
Campus Police officers are vested with full law enforcement powers and responsibilities to enforce all municiple, state and federal laws. All Campus Police officers are trained at the New Mexico Law Enforcement Academy and receive additional in-service training in first aid, firearms, defensive tactics, and legal updates, as well as training in laws relating to DWI and traffic investigation.
Officers are responsible for a full range of public safety services, including all crime reports; investigations; medical and fire emergencies; traffic accidents; enforcement of laws regulating underage drinking, the use of controlled substances, and weapons; and all other incidents on the Tech campus requiring police assistance.
When necessary, we share information on arrests, serious crimes and other incidents with other local law enforcement agencies, that would help bringing criminals to justice sooner providing a better over all protection and law enforcement services for the students, staff and faculty at New Mexico Tech.
