How Do I Commend An Officer?

If you feel that an officer has performed his or her duties in a particularly courteous, helpful or competent manner, we encourage you to express your appreciation in a number of ways.

  • Contact any supervisor (in person or by telephone) at Police Headquarters
  • Write a letter to the officer, the officer's Supervisor or to:
    Chief Kenneth Cop
    Rutgers Police Department
    55 Commercial Avenue

Be sure to obtain the officer's name and badge number if possible.
