Active Shooter Response Training Video

This 20 minute video provides critical guidance on how to recognize and survive an active shooter situation. It is one component of Drew University’s emergency training effort and is designed to be used in coordination with Public Safety’s in-person training sessions.

A Message from Public Safety

Drew University, the “University in the Forest”, is dedicated to providing its students with a safe and secure environment in which to pursue their educational goals. One of the major reasons for Drew’s excellent record is the fact that it is located in Madison, a community that enjoys one of the lowest crime rates in New Jersey. But the primary reason is the on-going cooperation of the University community with the Department of Public Safety.

The Department of Public Safety is responsible for providing an environment that is safe for all members of the Drew community. This responsibility includes crime prevention, fire safety, and educating students as to how they can contribute to a safe campus. Every member of the Drew community must share the responsibility for maintaining a safe and secure campus.

This Web site provides basic information on subjects that are of primary concern to students and to the Department of Public Safety. It also includes public safety statistics for Drew in fulfillment of the Crime Awareness and Campus Security Act of 1990.
