Public Safety

    Security is Everybody's Business 
    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.
