Security Technologies

The Security Technologies Shop has over 40 years experience in security technology applications. Technicians and locksmiths are responsible for the installation and repair of access control systems, intrusion and panic alarm systems, and CCTV cameras. They also provide installation and service of door hardware and maintain the university's master keying systems. All technicians are factory trained and certified on all products installed.

The Division of Public Safety's goal is to have an environment in which every building throughout the university is secured and monitored from ONE central 9-1-1 Communication & Dispatch Center. This would allow buildings to be locked-down or the response time to emergencies to be drastically reduced. To achieve this heightened level of security and safety the DPS would need the cooperation from all departmental stakeholders to recognize their role in the security process. The DPS encourages evaluations of each department and facility to continue the process to a safer Rutgers community for all.
