The cooperation and involvement of all faculty, staff, and students in campus security is absolutely necessary. The campus community must assume responsibility for their own personal safety and the security of their personal belongings by taking simple, common-sense precautions. Doors should be locked at all times, especially when the occupant is not in the room. All valuable items should be marked with an engraver or the serial number stored in a safe place. Students are encouraged to park their vehicles in lighted parking areas adjacent to campus residence halls, and to keep them locked at all times. Students should report any suspicious-looking individuals whom they feel do not belong in their residence halls or any unusual incidents in and around their residence halls to the housing staff or Campus Security.
In the event a member of the campus community becomes the victim of a crime, he/she should report the incident as prescribed in the above paragraphs. New Mexico Junior College has established policy concerning sexual harassment covering all employees and students. This policy can be found in both the Employee Handbook and the NMJC Student Handbook. The handbooks outline the procedures that students and employees should follow should they become the victim of a sexual assault or harassment situation.
