Welcome to the Rutgers Police Department

Patrol

Rutgers Police - Newark Division

The mission of the Rutgers Police is to provide effective policing and security services to all members of the University Community through the establishment of active community partnerships to prevent crime and enhance the quality of life for all students, employees and visitors through the fair and impartial enforcement of all federal, state and local laws over which the agency has jurisdiction.

The Newark Division of the Rutgers Police Department operates out of two locations: 5 Bruce Street and 100 University Avenue. Although the RUPD is charged with creating a safe and secure environment, we cannot accomplish this alone. Crime prevention and problem solving is everyone’s responsibility. Please assist us by calling 973-972-4491 or 973-353-5111 to report suspicious activity.
