Cooper University Hospital and Rowan University have entered into an agreement that will enhance public safety on the Camden Health Sciences Campus. According to this agreement, Rowan will provide law enforcement officers for the campus surrounding the hospital and the Cooper Medical School of Rowan University, which is currently under construction. Emphasis will be given to Camden Police Officers who were recently laid-off from their jobs.
The security of patients, visitors and staff is a priority at Cooper University Hospital, and we have always taken great strides to ensure that our Health Sciences Campus is safe and crime free. Cooper has a large force of experienced Security Officers. These officers patrol the Cooper campus around –the-clock, both on foot and in vehicles, to ensure a safe environment.
