Rutgers University Police Department

The Rutgers University Police Department (RUPD) is dedicated to providing progressive community policing services that focus on the prevention of crime through the development of university-based partnerships. The RUPD provides police, security, and safety services, and is staffed by commissioned police officers with full investigative and arrest authority, a professional security staff, students trained as community service officers, student safety officers, dispatchers, and technical and administrative employees.

The university police department is located at 5 Huntington Street on the College Avenue campus. The campuses are patrolled on foot, in vehicles, and on bicycles. To contact the RUPD to report emergencies (police, fire, and emergency medical), dial 911; from university centrex telephones, obtain an outside line and dial 911. For nonemergency telephone calls to the police, dial 732/932-7211; from university centrex telephones, dial 2-7211. You also can contact the police by using any of the more than 60 blue light emergency telephone boxes on the campuses or by using the housing telephones located near residence hall entrances.

Community policing offices are located in each of the campus student centers. These frontline police officers act as community organizers, team builders, and problem solvers. They provide a communications link between the community and the police department, serve on campus bias committees, and perform proactive patrol. Security officers patrol the campuses, serving as "eyes and ears" for the police while securing facilities and providing escort services. Student safety officers and community services officers provide a host of other safety and security services that include controlling access to selected residence halls during evening hours. For more information on these programs, call 732/932-5400.
