The Position

Role of the Assistant Vice President for Public Safety for Princeton University

Reporting to Laura Strickler, deputy for safety and administration and chief of staff in the office of the executive vice president, the assistant vice president for public safety (assistant vice president) will lead and manage a well-regarded department dedicated to protecting the safety and security of a diverse community through a community caretaking approach. The historic campus, its physical and cultural assets, and University events provide living and learning space for the 16,500 students, faculty, and staff and attract more than 860,000 visitors to the campus annually. The assistant vice president oversees a team of professionals who are dedicated to fostering a deep connection with the campus community and positive interactions with all those with whom they come into contact. The department of public safety (DPS) has been accredited by the Commission on Accreditation for Law Enforcement Agencies (CALEA) since July 2015 and the State of New Jersey since 2018-2019. The 110-member department includes unarmed commissioned (sworn) police officers, non-commissioned (unsworn) security officers, library and art museum security officers, a detective bureau, the office of the fire marshal, communications center staff, and administrative staff. Officers are represented by two separate unions. Commissioned officers derive their legal authority from N.J.S.A. 18A:6-41 et seq. The law enforcement function of the department is overseen by the Mercer County Prosecutor’s Office.

The assistant vice president will collaborate with and serve as a key advisor to the University’s senior leadership on public safety issues and law enforcement operations and will work closely with colleagues across the institution. They will oversee the continuous improvement of the department’s community caretaking approach; educational crime prevention programs; enforcement of University regulations; the coordination of security for special events; security assessments; fire inspections and code enforcement; an emergency dispatch and 24/7 911 call center; the investigation of and response to certain criminal offenses; collaboration with town, county, state, and federal law enforcement agencies; and coordinated response to accidents, medical, or fire emergencies and requests for assistance. The successful candidate will be well-versed in the utilization of the latest public safety technology solutions and assist in the design and implementation, where necessary, of new policies, systems, and procedures to enhance the safety and security of the University community.

History of the Position

Paul Ominsky is the current assistant vice president for public safety at Princeton. He joined the University as the director of public safety in 201o and is widely respected for providing transformative leadership for DPS during the past 11 years. Ominsky has established a strong philosophy of community caretaking within the department and has built strong relationships with local, state, and federal law enforcement agencies. Ominsky has announced his retirement from Princeton effective June 2021.

Opportunities and Challenges of the Role

The successful candidate must possess a broad and deep understanding of best practices with regard to community caretaking strategies, higher education culture, modern safety and security techniques and technology, and staff development. The assistant vice president should be an experienced leader capable of managing a complex and multifaceted department and equipped to contribute at both a strategic and tactical level to a vibrant, creative, and diverse Princeton University community.

The key opportunities, priorities, and challenges that will face the new assistant vice president include the following:

  • The new assistant vice president must exemplify collaboration and partnership both within the University and externally for maximum effectiveness. Princeton is committed to building relationships as a foundation of the campus culture, and strong and transparent partnerships are an absolute necessity in all endeavors to ensure success. DPS interacts with a significant number of individuals, departments, and organizations, so it will be critical for the new assistant vice president to quickly reach out across campus and local municipalities to build strong partnerships that foster ongoing positive relationships. These connections are essential in order to assess real needs, design community- and student-centered programs, and provide satisfactory customer service at all times. Additionally, DPS works closely with federal, state, county, and local law enforcement agencies in the University’s host communities (e.g., Princeton and West Windsor township), and adjacent communities, so the successful candidate should be prepared to continue to foster strong collaborative relationships and good mutual aid understandings with these partners.
  • Law enforcement practices are under a microscope across the nation. It will be critical for the new assistant vice president to work to ensure effective communications, transparency, and community caretaking and embrace reforms that support those goals. DPS should be visible, accessible, and engaged with the student body, consistently networking with the faculty and administration, proactively involving the campus in safety and security endeavors, and generally providing a positive representation of the department as an active member of the Princeton community. The next assistant vice president should use national best practices, innovative new trends, and professional networks to inform the further development of a community caretaking public safety philosophy.
  • Princeton holds as a core value a strong commitment to diversity, equity, inclusion, and community and human relations, so the new assistant vice president will need to keep these concepts as a top priority at all times. The assistant vice president must ensure inclusion of education and training around diversity, equity, bias, discrimination, and inclusion in all operational and strategic areas of the department.
  • The assistant vice president will be expected to bring innovative practices and ideas regarding the hiring, training, and retention of public safety team members, with a focus on maintaining a strong, high-functioning team through mentoring, team building, and creative advancement opportunities.
  • Modern law enforcement operations rely on technology and critical infrastructure (CI) solutions. The assistant vice president should bring a comfort and familiarity with safety, security, and communications center technology solutions and provide leadership as the business owner for these functions as part of a collaborative, University-wide effort to adopt standard processes and controls for CI systems.
  • Using data-driven assessments, the assistant vice president will initiate process improvement and organizational effectiveness activities to streamline processes and optimize resources and collaboration with other campus service providers.
  • The department’s non-commissioned officers are represented by the International Union, Security, Police and Fire Professionals of America (SPFPA), and its commissioned officers are represented by the Fraternal Order of Police, Inc. (FOP). Therefore, it will be essential for the assistant vice president to establish a strong working relationship with both organizations.

Qualifications and Characteristics

This position is an exceptional opportunity for a collaborative leader with a strong knowledge of higher education public safety and emergency response practices, excellent strategic and operational abilities, outstanding communication and interpersonal skills, and a clear and demonstrated commitment to community caretaking as a core professional value. The successful candidate will possess an appreciation for the complexity of public safety in the context of a residential and dynamic university campus with a significant international population, as well as an unwavering commitment to advancing diversity, equity, and inclusion in every facet of the department’s activities. A bachelor’s degree and a minimum of 12 years of progressive public safety experience are required, preferably in a higher education setting; an advanced degree is preferred.

Princeton is particularly interested in candidates with a strong attraction to the environment of a complex university with strong ties to its immediate surrounding communities, as well as a genuine interest in students and a commitment to be visible and accessible to all constituents. Experience working with a unionized work force and a record of success establishing and maintaining positive labor/management relations, a proven ability to motivate a diverse workforce to succeed as a high-functioning team, and the capacity to inspire trust and confidence among staff will be key expectations for the successful candidate. The assistant vice president will be expected to live within 30 minutes of Princeton’s campus.

Overview of the Department of Public Safety

The department of public safety is the primary department at the University charged with creating a safe and secure environment. DPS operates 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. The department’s 110 staff members contribute to a comprehensive and integrated safety and security program in collaboration with the Princeton community.

DPS comprises the following functional areas:

  • Office of the Assistant Vice President: The office of the assistant vice president for public safety is composed of a core leadership team who manage and support the daily operational and administrative functions of DPS.
  • Art Museum and Library Security: DPS provides security staffing and oversight for both the Firestone Library and University Art Museum. For both clients, DPS provides administrative oversight in planning, coordinating, and managing security operations. The security officers help enforce library and museum policies and ensure safety of the valuable books, cherished art, and patrons. The Firestone Library is staffed by officers 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. Officers are stationed throughout the library to ensure compliance with University and public safety regulations. The library staff is includes both library security officers and security supervisors. At the library’s front desk, DPS officers check for University IDs or guest passes and check bags upon exit.  At the museum, officers are stationed throughout the galleries and control room to monitor all activities. The Art Museum staff is includes both Art Museum security officers and Art Museum security supervisors. Officers stationed in the control room supervise the card access system, campus video management system (CVMS) and fire alarm systems in the galleries and provide badges to visiting staff and docents.
  • Sworn University Police Officers: DPS’s sworn, unarmed University police officers have the authority of commissioned police officers with full power of arrest deriving their law enforcement authority from New Jersey statutes (Title 18A, Sections 6-4.2 and 6-4.5) and the Trustees of Princeton University.
  • Non-sworn University Security Officers: Non-sworn security officers work in different areas of Princeton’s campus: on patrol around campus, in the Firestone Library, and in the Princeton University Art Museum. Non-sworn security officers are empowered by the institution to enforce University regulations. These officers attend a training program sponsored by the New Jersey College and University Public Safety Association that provides a basic orientation to the theories of campus security. Non-sworn security officers participate in field training and an evaluation program to further orient them to providing campus public safety services. Officers that patrol the campus are primarily responsible for building security, event security, and enforcement of parking and traffic regulations.
  • Welcome Desk and University Operator: DPS also houses the University’s operator system. The operator represents Princeton University and DPS with utmost professionalism and cordiality, greeting callers and visitors to campus, giving out general information about the University, and transferring callers to the appropriate destination.
  • The Communication Center: The Communication Center oversees the state-of-the-art electronic security infrastructure for Princeton University and is staffed with trained and certified communications dispatchers. These dispatchers answer calls for service; monitor intrusion detection, and duress and fire alarms; provide temporary Princeton ID cards should a student find themselves locked out of their residence after hours; and provide other emergency services to community members, which include answering the many emergency phones on campus.
  • The Detective Bureau: The Detective Bureau at DPS consists of a detective-sergeant and two sworn detectives. The detectives are extensively trained in all facets of conducting investigations for all types of incidents. Their responsibilities include crime scene examinations, case follow-up, investigations, offender processing, and presenting cases for prosecution.
  • Community Relations: A primary goal of DPS is to develop and maintain strong, lasting partnerships with the local community. Incorporating the partnership and community caretaking style of law enforcement has shown dividends in the department’s progressive approach to crime prevention, risk identification and reduction, as well as problem solving.
  • Office of the Fire Marshal: The office of the fire marshal is responsible for enforcement of the New Jersey Uniform Fire Code and conducting fire inspections of University-owned buildings in accordance with the Code.

Organizational Chart

Institution & Location

Institutional Overview

Chartered in 1746 as the College of New Jersey―the name by which it was known for 150 years―Princeton University is the fourth oldest college in the nation. Located in Elizabeth for one year and then in Newark for nine, the College of New Jersey moved to Princeton in 1756. In 1896, when expanded program offerings brought the College university status, the College of New Jersey was officially renamed Princeton University in honor of its host community. Four years later the Graduate School was established.

Princeton provides undergraduate and graduate instruction in the humanities, social sciences, natural sciences, and engineering. It offers professional degrees through the School of Public and International Affairs, the School of Engineering and Applied Science, the School of Architecture, and the Bendheim Center for Finance.

As a world-renowned research university, Princeton seeks to achieve the highest levels of distinction in the discovery and transmission of knowledge and understanding. At the same time, Princeton is distinctive among research universities in its commitment to undergraduate teaching.

The Trustees of Princeton University, a 40-member board, is responsible for the overall direction of the University. It approves the operating and capital budgets, supervises the investment of the University’s endowment, and oversees campus real estate and long-range physical planning. The trustees also exercise prior review and approval concerning changes in major policies, such as those in instructional programs and admission, as well as tuition and fees and the hiring of faculty members.

With an endowment of $26.6 billion, Princeton University is among the best resourced universities in the world. The University has the greatest per-student endowment (over $2 million for undergraduates). Such a significant endowment is sustained through the continued donations of its alumni and is maintained by investment advisers.

Today, more than 1,200 faculty members instruct approximately 5,200 undergraduate students and 2,900 graduate students. The University’s generous financial aid program ensures that talented students from all economic backgrounds can afford a Princeton education. It is consistently ranked as one of the best universities in the world.

The University, with approximately 7,000 benefits-eligible employees, is one of Mercer County’s largest private employers and one of the largest in the region. It plays a major role in the educational, cultural, and economic life in the area by bringing more than 860,000 visitors and more than $2 billion in economic activity to the region each year.

Princeton’s central campus in Princeton, NJ consists of approximately ten million square feet of built space in 200 buildings on 600 acres. The University is planning expansion on a lake campus in West Windsor, NJ. Special facilities on University-owned lands include a golf course, a lake, the Forrestal Campus in Plainsboro, and roads for which the University owns the right-of-way. The campus includes facilities that support 37 NCAA Division I and Ivy League teams. The Princeton University Art Museum has a collection of over 110,000 works of art from antiquity to the present, including works by Claude Monet, Vincent van Gogh, Jackson Pollock, and Andy Warhol, among other prominent artists. The Princeton University library collections include more than seven million printed works and a rare book collection dating to the 15th century.

The University’s campus is ideally situated and offers distinctively handsome architecture in a hospitable small-town setting. The town of Princeton has approximately 30,000 residents and is located just an hour from both New York City and Philadelphia.

About Princeton, NJ

The charm of Princeton offers the best of both worlds. A community of approximately 30,000 residents who live in tree-lined neighborhoods, Princeton also enjoys a central New Jersey location and transit network that puts it a quick train ride from New York City and Philadelphia.

The quality and diversity of Princeton’s restaurant scene is constantly on the rise. From noodle houses, sandwich shops, and gourmet ice cream to farm-to-table fine dining, there are options for everyone. And Princeton’s cosmopolitan community ensures a mix of Asian, Middle Eastern, Mediterranean, Latin American, and other cuisines. A seasonal farmers market operates just steps from campus and, during the warm-weather months, another farmers market operates on the University’s Firestone Plaza.

Downtown Princeton features a wide variety of retail outlets—everything from thrift shops and fashion boutiques to bookstores and a renowned record exchange, all on the edge of campus. Free transit shuttles also connect the campus with larger grocery stores and retail centers in and around Princeton.

For arts lovers, the McCarter Theatre Center, winner of a Tony Award for the best regional theater in the country, is a campus treasure within easy walking distance. A few streets over is Morven Museum and Garden, which dates back more than 200 years and houses a distinctive collection of fine and decorative arts. Live music acts perform in restaurants, pubs, and coffee houses throughout town, and the Princeton Garden Theatre shows the latest major motion pictures as well as independent and foreign-language films.

With easy access to parks, waterways, and trails, Princetonians are found exploring the outdoors all year round. Students enjoy convenient jogging trails that line the Delaware & Raritan Canal, canoeing on Lake Carnegie, and biking and hiking on trails throughout the region. The beaches of the Jersey Shore and Pennsylvania’s ski locations are also just a short road trip away.

TigerTransit shuttles and NJ Transit’s local bus routes provide transportation throughout the Princeton campus and surrounding communities. BikeShares and CarShares allow for easy day trips.

A train known locally as “The Dinky” connects campus (via the Princeton Station at Alexander Street) to Princeton Junction, where northbound NJ TRANSIT trains provide direct service to New York City and Newark Liberty International Airport. Southbound trains provide a transfer to the Philadelphia-bound SEPTA regional rail Trenton Line. Amtrak trains connect Princeton Junction to Washington, D.C., Boston, and the broader region.
