  • Campus Escort ServicesThe Public Safety Department will provide security escorts to and from campus facilities for anyone. This service may be requested by calling the Public Safety Department at 201-200-3128.
     
    Public Safety escorts may be performed as a foot escort or a vehicle escort. If you are in a vehicle, you will be asked to wait in your vehicle with the lights on so the officer can locate you or if you are in any other area you will be instructed to meet the officer at a designated place.
     
    The Public Safety Department encourages the campus community to use the "buddy system" or request an escort whenever possible rather than traveling alone.
     
    At NJCU, Public Safety is a priority. Safety measures are in place and continuous attention is given to new ways to increase safety awareness and promote a crime-free environment. We are committed to providing a safe and secure institution where all members of the campus community can work, live and learn - free from the limiting constraints of crime.

    The Buddy System

    The Public Safety Department encourages the campus community to use the "buddy system" or request an escort whenever possible rather than traveling alone.
     
    The Public Safety Department believes that there are safety in numbers so, if possible, travel with a friend (buddy) to locations on and off campus during hours of darkness or rarely traveled walkways.

    • Wherever you are on the street, in an office or shopping mall, driving, waiting for a bus or subway -- stay alert and tuned in to your surroundings.
    • Send the message that you're calm, confident, and know where you're going.
    • Trust your instincts. If something or someone makes you uneasy, avoid the person or leave.
    • Know the neighborhood where you live and work. Check out the locations of police and fire stations, public telephones, hospitals and restaurants, or stores that are open.
