Your safety and security at the University are of vital concern. Every member of the New Jersey City University community has a stake in providing a safe environment for teaching and learning.
New Jersey City University is amongst the nation's best urban universities. We are located in the most interesting metropolitan area of the country. We are proud of our urban tradition and the educational opportunities it provides for our students.
We are also aware of the challenges posed by such an environment, and have developed a comprehensive public safety program designed to reduce the opportunities for incidents, and to promote the participation of the entire University community in crime awareness and deterrence.
The responsibility for personal safety does not and cannot rest primarily with the University or our Public Safety Department; rather, it rests primarily with you and me as individuals. By working together, we can improve the safety and security of everyone on campus.
University Public Safety Officers are available twenty-four hours a day to respond to any emergency or request for public safety services. Officers conduct pro-active loss preventative patrols throughout the campus in vehicles and on foot. Officers patrol all parking areas. In addition, officers are assigned to all residence halls.
A Message from the Associate Vice President of the Department of Public Safety
On behalf of the Department of Public Safety, it is my pleasure to welcome you to New Jersey City University. I want to assure you that my staff and I will continuously work around the clock to maintain a safe environment for our students, faculty, staff, and visitors alike. We believe that safety is a shared responsibility and ask that you join us in making our campus, as well as our community, a safe and pleasant place to learn, live and work.
The Department of Public Safety offers comprehensive safety and security services to all valued members of our community. We work vigilantly with our municipal, state and federal law enforcement and fire safety partners to ensure the safety and security of our community. You can help in a couple of ways: first, by being aware of your surroundings and belongings; secondly by reporting unusual or suspicious behavior.
We welcome your comments, suggestions, and ideas for making NJCU an even safer environment. To share your ideas, please visit the Public Safety Office located at Rossey Hall Rm. 114/115; call us at 201-200-3128; or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
