NJCU’s Associate Vice President of Public Safety Ronald Hurley received the 2019 Campus Safety Director of the Year along with James Johnson, Assistant VP for Campus Safety at the University of Texas at Austin.
Here are some of his Director Hurley’s notable achievements:
- Repurposed parking lot attendants as security officers to avoid layoffs and increase patrols of parking lots.
- Created a crime prevention program called “Gotcha” where officers place stickers on unattended items left around campus. Thefts have decreased by 19 percent.
- Improved dispatch systems, which consolidated all radio communications without additional cost for separate frequency base hardware.
- Improved range and clarity of system by transitioning to digital.
