Important safety information & services
Located in a rural community, Otero College has one of the lowest campus crime rates in the state. Despite our low crime rate, the administration, faculty and staff at Otero take very seriously the safety and well-being of all who live, work and visit the campus. In addition to an on-campus security officer, the college works very closely with the local police and fire departments, who respond quickly and efficiently to all issues that arise on campus. The College has an active Safety Committee that works to continually search out and address safety concerns. The campus participates in annual safety training sessions and has monthly updates on safety precautions and procedures.
