Security Requests

Contact Security

These forms have been placed online for your convenience.

If you have questions about the forms contact the Security Department at (505) 224-4633.

Facility Usage Authorization

The Facility Usage Authorization (FUAN) Form must be completed, signed, and submitted ten (10) business days prior to the planned activity/event.

The FUAN form is to be used for all activities scheduled for weekends, holidays, after hours, and for those activities not normally held in the requested room/space. A FUAN should also be submitted for all special events/functions (conferences, large trainings, outreach events, etc.) on and off campus.

Individuals requesting entrance to a facility must contact CNM Dispatch at (505) 224-3002.

Key Requests

Use the Key Requests Form to request keys for specific rooms. (Exterior keys are not issued.) To request a key, you must complete the form and submit it to your department's Key Control Agent. Each department has a designated Key Control Agent. The form must be signed by your Dean, Director, Associate Dean, or Key Control Agent. The completed form will then be sent to the Security Director for approval.

Note: The key number must be included on the form. Many classrooms require an Alarm Code Request to be submitted at the same time, so check with your department to see if you also need an alarm code.

Security Department Complaint Procedure

The CNM Security Department is committed to maintaining the integrity of its employees and is dedicated to upholding the trust of the community.  To preserve that trust, the Security Department accepts and investigates formal and anonymous complaints from the community, college staff/ students, and from internal sources against a Security Department employee.

Complaints of alleged misconduct against any Security Department employee may be made in person at the Main Campus Security Office located in the Public Safety (PS) Building to the supervisor on duty.  The office is open Monday through Friday 8 a.m. to 5 p.m.

Complaint(s) may also be made by calling dispatch on the non-emergency number (505) 224-3002, 24 hours a day, and requesting to talk with the supervisor on duty.  If a supervisor is not on duty the Dispatcher will advise the caller to contact the next available supervisor on the next working day.

  • The supervisor shall instruct the person(s) to write a statement providing as much detail as possible including dates, times, names, descriptions, and contact numbers(s).
  • The supervisor receiving the complaint shall forward the statement and any other report(s) to the Director of Security or Designee.
  • The Director of Security or Designee shall review the information and make a decision to forward the complaint to the employee's immediate supervisor for further investigation or action taken or forward the information to the Internal Affairs Supervisor for further investigation.
  • The supervisor or IA Investigator shall prepare a detailed report which outlines their investigation and submits all documents to the Director of Security within 15 days.

Further information regarding the Security Department Complaint Procedure can be obtained through any Security Supervisor.
