Three cheers for Stephen Lopez and the NMSU Police Department


The following email was sent to the NMSU Chancellor Garrey Carruthers in May following a kindergarten field trip to the university. Chief Lopez showed that NMSU is a caring community that transforms lives through discovery.

Good morning,

Yesterday my kindergarten students had the pleasure of visiting the police station on the NMSU campus. The police chief gave us the best tour and demonstration ever! My students were so excited. I am not sure who his supervisor is, but if you could please let whomever know that we were more than pleased with our visit.

Thank you so much.
