If you see something, say something, and Public Safety will respond.

The Rowan College at Burlington County's Public Safety Department is committed to enhancing the quality of life on campus by keeping our community safe.

We are also responsible for parking safety violations/fines, student ID cards, vehicle registration and distribution of the Annual Security Report and the Campus Emergencies & Safety Procedures Guide.

In accomplishing our mission, we are guided by the following values that serve as a foundation for every action we take: Service, Integrity, Respect, Professionalism, Accountability, Mentoring and Appreciation.

Annual Security Report

Campus Safety and Security Reporting requires Rowan College at Burlington County to:

  • Publish an annual report every year by October 1 that contains three years of campus crime statistics and certain campus security policy statements;
  • Disclose crime statistics for the campus, public areas immediately adjacent to or running through the campus, and certain non-campus facilities and remote classrooms. The statistics must be gathered from campus police or security, local law enforcement, and other college officials who have "significant responsibility for student and campus activities;"
  • Provide "timely warning" notices of those crimes that have occurred and pose an ongoing "threat to students and employees;" 
  • Disclose in a public crime log "any crime that occurred on campus, or within the patrol jurisdiction of the campus Public Safety Department and that which is reported to the campus Public Safety Department."

(There are additional requirements not listed above.)

Public Safety Resources

RCBC is devoted to creating a safety net to help prevent suicide and violence. The most effective ways to prevent suicide and violence are to know the warning signs, take them seriously and help the individual access the appropriate resources. The only real risk is in doing nothing. If you or someone you know is suffering and you want to know how to help, call a suicide prevention hotline for assistance:
