TCNJ Campus Police Services

The Office of Campus Police Services believes the most effective way to achieve its goals is through collaboration with the members of our community. Embracing a community policing philosophy, we strive to maintain an ever-strengthening partnership with campus constituents as well as our neighbors in the off-campus community. Such partnership is necessary for success in fulfilling our mission and greatly enhanced the deterrence of crime.

In building a successful partnership with the campus community, The College of New Jersey maintains its own police department, providing law enforcement and security services 24 hours, 7 days a week. Campus Police Services currently employs an outstanding mix of individuals that strive to provide safety and security for the entire College community. We are located in the Administration Services Building and ready to help in any way we can.

For emergencies or immediate assistance, please call 609-771-2345.
