Safety & Security

At the School of Environmental and Biological Sciences, we take safety and security seriously.

Rutgers maintains a comprehensive public safety program aimed at serving all members of the campus community. But safety must start with you. You help promote a crime-free campus environment by following security policies and using common sense safety practices. Walking in groups, reporting suspicious activity, keeping doors and windows securely locked, limiting consumption of alcohol—these are some simple measures that help ensure your own protection.

The student newspaper, The Daily Targum, publishes a daily police bulletin. Additional informational materials describing crime prevention measures, including brochures, flyers, posters, and key chains are distributed each year. Information regarding crimes posing significant threats to the university are distributed to faculty, staff, and students via comprehensive email "Crime Alerts" in order to keep an informed campus community.
