TOM ZIMMERMAN, longtime director of Campus Police at New Mexico Tech, will be handing over the reins of office come April 30. Zimmerman, who started at Tech on Jan. 1, 1975, is retiring after 24 years and four months. He was asked to be head of campus security by then Tech president. Zimmerman was approaching the end of his two terms as Socorro County Sheriff. So, Zimmerman, who is a graduate of the national FBI Academy, decided to give campus law enforcement a try. He hired a certified police officer and began to make them an official police department. The state authorized them as an official police department in 1981. Zimmerman’s plans for retirement include raising cattle, fishing, and perhaps some travel.
