Missing Persons Policy
If a member of the University community has reason to believe that a resident student is missing, they should immediately notify the Department of Campus Safety at (201) 761- 7400. Campus Safety will generate a Missing Persons report and initiate an investigation. Immediate investigative steps will include interviewing roommates and friends, checking card access, reviewing CCTV footage, speaking with residence life and checking with the Dean of Students for class attendance and/or suspensions. Once it has been determined that the resident student has been missing for 24 hours, Jersey City Police Department will be notified as well as the students emergency contacts. Campus Safety will check with Enrollment Services to determine if the student had registered a confidential emergency contact first. If the resident student is under 18 years of age and not emancipated, Campus Safety will notify the student’s parent(s) or guardian.
