Bloomfield College of Montclair State University recognizes the importance of a safe and secure campus environment and strives to maintain a campus security program that provides protection for students, faculty and administrative employees.

The Director of Safety is primarily responsible for providing a program of campus security and reports to the Police Chief of Montclair State University Police. The campus security staff is provided through a contracted security. In addition, security personnel are provided jointly by Bloomfield College of Montclair State University. This combination provides unarmed security coverage 24 hours per day, 7 days per week through foot patrols, enforcement of parking regulations, and building access control where applicable.

The Director of Safety annually compiles crime statistics and produces an Annual Security Report, which includes crime statistics, security policies, and regulations. This report is available to current students and employees through the campus website. Prospective students and employees are informed that the report is available on our website.

The Bloomfield College at Montclair State Department of Safety and professional contracted security provides services to:

  • Prevent crimes on campus.
  • Protect members of the Bloomfield College of Montclair State University campus through safety and security measures.
  • Assist in routine and emergency situations. Jurisdiction of the security officers is limited to the property at the Bloomfield campus and grounds.

Security officers do not have authority to make arrests. Initial response to emergencies on campus are provided by Bloomfield Township Police, Fire and EMS.

Crimes and offenses that occur on the Bloomfield campus are investigated by the Montclair State University Police Department. Our department works closely with these departments in addition to other law enforcement agencies to promptly investigate and resolve all criminal activity.
