New Brunswick and Rutgers have announced formation of a new Neighborhood Police Team, according to New Brunswick Police Director Anthony A. Caputo and Rutgers Police Chief Kenneth Cop.

According to New Brunswick police:

Although neighborhood policing is nothing new to the New Brunswick Police Department, the concept of putting Rutgers and New Brunswick police officers in the same patrol car is a first for both departments.

The Neighborhood Police Team (NPT) will patrol the 5th and 6th Wards of New Brunswick; areas predominately occupied by off-campus student housing.

This Neighborhood Police Team will focus on the safety and protection of the 5th and 6th Ward residents along with keeping the off-campus community better informed regarding police and neighborhood issues.

Each NPT unit will consist of a New Brunswick officer and a Rutgers officer riding in a marked New Brunswick police cruiser, patrolling the neighborhood together; as a team.
