Officers and staff of the Eastern New Mexico University Police Department wrapped up their back -to-school training before the start of the fall semester.
The training exercises held on Thursday in the top floor of Bernalillo Hall focused on active shooter threat scenarios that incorporated firearms, use of force, defensive tactics, and honing rapid decision making skills.
The Eastern New Mexico University Police Department has three Active Shooter Threat instructors that have been certified by the Department of Homeland Security. These instructors represent only a fraction of the training expertise in the department.
Eastern New Mexico University and its instructor cadre from the ENMU Police Department have been the host of the vast majority of biennium training in Roosevelt County, which is required by the state for officers to maintain their law enforcement certifications. The organizations that have participated in this training have been the Roosevelt County Sheriff’s Office, Elida Police Department, Portales Police Department and Cannon Air Force Base to name a few.
It is our pleasure to serve the citizens of Roosevelt County and our campus community. We are looking forward to a great year full of student success. Go Hounds and Zias!

It is a sincere pleasure to commend to the patrons and taxpayers of the district the exceptionally positive commitment to student success and performance I encountered among certified and support personnel, all of whom touch the lives of your children.
