3. PUBLIC SAFETY
The NMSU Police Department is located on College Drive. All students
and staff should report public safety problems to the NMSU Police
Department at 646-3311. Any activities which you observe that make you
uncomfortable or make you question the appropriateness of the activity
should be reported.
The NMSU Escort Service (646-1111) is provided by the Associated
Students of New Mexico State University (ASNMSU). This service provides a
person to walk you from one location to another. The area covered ranges
from student housing to two blocks off-campus. Even though NMSU is not
considered a dangerous campus, the Escort Service provides the added
feeling of safety by ensuring students donít have to walk alone at
night. The service is provided free of charge to students and is available
from sundown until 12:30 am. Sunday - Thursday (646-1111).
Emergency stations are located in many areas throughout the campus.
They are easily identified by blue lights and have an emergency
telephone attached. As you park or walk around the campus, make note of
where the emergency stations are located. Do not try to apprehend a
suspicious person yourself; let the police respond.
