NJIT To Collaborate With Mayor Booker’s Safe Neighborhood Summer Initiative

In a strong show of collaboration to strengthen the City’s public safety, Newark’s newly inaugurated Mayor, Cory Booker, held a press conference for two major announcements: the Safe Neighborhood Summer Initiative and the appointment of Anthony Campos as acting police chief.  NJIT’s Department of Public Safety was personally invited to participate. “I’ve known Chief Campos for a long time and he is a good friend to this department,” said NJIT Chief of Police Michael Kirk, director of NJIT’s Department of Public Safety. “We look forward to working with him on this new community initiative.” The initiative will involve all surrounding agencies including federal, state, Campus Police and Transit Police, as well as the Prosecutor and Sheriff’s offices.
