Campus Police Chief Discusses University Safety
New Mexico Highlands is serious about the safety of its students, faculty and staff and has been making great strides in improving campus safety, said the university’s chief of police.
Highlands Police Chief Scott Scarborough, conducted a safety walking tour of campus with a group of Highlands’ student senate members and university administrators April 10.
“Our newly installed security cameras on campus serve as an effective deterrent to crime on campus and have helped us quickly solve many crimes,” Scarborough said. “We have also added new parking lot lighting and emergency call boxes across campus in an effort to improve campus security.”
Scarborough said many the university’s police department has also developed strong relationships with the Las Vegas Police Department and the State Patrol.
“A lot of students are concerned about off-campus crime,” Scarborough said. “Improved communications with all agencies will help provide a safer town for everyone.”
