WNMU Campus Police

The WNMU Police Department is a full-service police agency. The WNMU Police Department functions like most police departments. WNMU police officers have enforcement authority on all WNMU property controlled by the Board of Regents throughout the State of New Mexico, and have concurrent jurisdictional authority in some neighboring areas under mutual aid agreements. WNMU police officers share a good working relationship with all surrounding local, state, and federal agencies.

The primary functions of the WNMU Police Department are to maintain a safe and secure environment to students, staff, faculty and visitors of Western New Mexico University.  Other functions are law enforcement, criminal investigations, accident investigations and responding to emergencies.

Copies of police reports are available by the public 8 a.m.–4:30 p.m. Monday through Friday in the lobby of the WNMU Police Department. The WNMU Police Department employs 5 full-time police officers. All officers are certified through the New Mexico Department of Public Safety.  Officers must maintain their proficiency by attending advanced training.  We have one full time administrative secretary/dispatcher and several work-study students to assist in the office.
