Galloway Police to Participate in Campus Safety Initiatives

Galloway, N.J. - Representatives from the Galloway Township Police Department will participate in Stockton University’s fall Welcome Week and other student awareness programs to reinforce Stockton’s messages to students about how to remain safe when choosing to attend unregulated off-campus events or activities.

Stockton officials met with Galloway Township Police to discuss awareness, prevention, and disciplinary procedures already in place, and how they might be enhanced.

“The Stockton Police Department has had a long-standing relationship with the Galloway Township Police,” Stockton Director of Public Safety Adrian Wiggins said. “We welcome their participation in our ongoing efforts to educate students on how to take safety precautions no matter where they are. The entire Stockton community can play an active role in preventing and reporting sexual misconduct or criminal activity.”

Galloway Township Police Chief Donna Higbee said they have always worked collaboratively with Stockton Police and welcomes the opportunity to further enhance Stockton’s messages about preventing, identifying and reporting sexual assault or any criminal activity both on and off campus.

Chief Higbee stressed that early reporting of crimes by victims and witnesses is extremely important to the investigative process in order to prosecute perpetrators expeditiously and to the full extent of the law.

The university continues to provide educational awareness, counseling, victim services and other forms of sexual assault and domestic violence support programs for students. Students are advised to immediately report any incident or concerning situation to authorities.
