The Garfield School District has full and part time security personnel in place. The Superintendent as well as the Garfield Board of Education have placed protecting our students, staff and facilities as one of the districts major priorities.

Security services personnel are responsible for maintaining the statewide initiative in regards to drills (fire, lockdown, evacuation, etc.), event planning, access facility control as well to day to day operations within the sixteen district facilities.

The security services staff is comprised of retired law enforcement personnel from local, county and state organizations. Our personnel have a wide range of expertise as well as specified training within their backgrounds. Security members will continue to train and work with agencies such as the New Jersey State Police, City of Garfield Police, New Jersey Dept. of Homeland Security as well as the New Jersey Dept. of Educations Schools Security Initiative Task Force.

The districts stance in regards to security will continue to be paramount. The district will continue to provide a safe school environment while remaining at the forefront of school security within our area.
