Rutgers Emergency Services Response Unit (RUES) responds to several types of non emergency calls. The most common is a motor vehicle lockout. RUES will assist students, visitors, and faculty/staff with motor vehicle lockouts on the New Brunswick/Piscataway campus as well as the surrounding areas. When you call, please let the telecommunicator know the make and model of the vehicle, location, parking lot #, street address, call back number, and if the vehicle is running or if a child is inside. Call the Public Safety Communications & Dispatch Center at 732-932-7211 for a lockout request.
The Rutgers University Police Department (RUPD) offers jump starts to individuals needing assistance with weak or dead batteries. Persons needing jump starts can contact the Public Safety Communications & Dispatch Center at 732-932-7211.
Drivers of vehicles needing jump starts should raise the hood of their vehicle to help identify their vehicle. In order to have your vehicle jump started, a Liability Release Form must be completed and signed by the driver of the vehicle being jump started and by the officer providing assistance.
