Mission Statement

The mission of the Bergen Community College Department of Public Safety is to provide and maintain a safe and secure atmosphere for all members of the College community. The function of the department is varied and includes, but is not limited to: unbiased and fair enforcement of the Colleges rules and regulations, responding to calls for non-enforcement services, active patrol of the campus, and serving as public relations contacts.

The success of this mission depends upon an effective working relationship between Public Safety personnel, and the diverse community at Bergen. Critical to this relationship is mutual respect among students, staff, faculty and visitors.

Therefore, we pledge to respect the diverse needs and interests of the community we serve. We pledge to be diligent and relentless in the protection of both life and property.

In return, we ask that our partners in this community assume their individual and collective responsibilities to make Bergen Community College a place that is safe from crime, and to provide a civil and open environment that fosters learning.

The authority by which the department operates, along with the resources that are provided for it, are granted to the department by the College and are an affirmation of the Colleges trust. All members of the College community must recognize that the proper use of these resources assist the College in offering a comprehensive set of accessible, affordable, high-quality courses and programs that are designed to meet the demands of the community
