UNM updates campus safety measures

Albuquerque, N.M. (KKOB) — As part of its comprehensive safety efforts, UNM began its 2022 Campus Safety Plan initiative last fall. One effort includes Crime Prevention Through Environmental Design applications, like the recently completed Campus Gateway Center. Additional crime prevention methods already in use include building access controls and video surveillance, both of which are currently being expanded throughout campus. Other initiatives in the works are license plate readers, the expansion of a current student escort program, gunshot detection, additional officers, and funding for mental health resources. Officials are hopeful these additional measures will help students and the community at large feel safe on campus.
