Fairleigh Dickinson University: Committed to Public Safety

Fairleigh Dickinson University, under the leadership of David Miles, Director of Public Safety, is committed to providing a safe campus environment for students and faculty.

On Wednesday, January 09, 2008, a cadre of public safety professionals was certified under the New Jersey Security Officer Registration Act. SORA was enacted on August 31, 2004 with associated regulations and the requirement that all private security officers attend a 24 hour training course. The course must be retaken every two years. The regulations also require that law enforcement officers who perform the duties of security personnel must be compensated by his/her department or become a registered security officer of a duly licensed security company.

The course is taught by certified instructors who have successfully completed a 40 hour train-the-trainer program developed by the New Jersey State Police and includes instruction in:

  • Homeland Security
  • Incident Command System
  • Report Writing
  • Use of Force
  • Theft Prevention
  • Ethics

Although in-house security or public safety professionals, as in the case of Fairleigh Dickinson University, are not required to be certified according to SORA, FDU is to be commended for its commitment to safety and security by going beyond the status quo and having its professionals certified.

This training and certification, completed through the dedication of certified instructors Patrick Fay (Lieutenant of the Hackensack Police Department and President of the North Jersey Regional Crime Prevention Officers Association) and Allen C. Kriney, stands as a model of dedication to the security profession and to all of the members of its educational community.
