N.J. Admin. Code § 16:53E-5.1 - Requirements

(a) A transit agency shall not operate a fixed guideway system unless the Department has provided written approval of, and the transit agency has implemented, its SSP for that system. If a transit agency is found to be in violation of any Federal or State requirement, the Department can withdraw its approval of a transit system's current SSP after giving a 30-day advance notice by certified letter sent to the chief executive officer of the transit agency.
(b) Every transit agency shall develop and implement a written SSP that complies with requirements of this chapter. The SSP shall be developed and maintained as a separate document and may not be part of the transit agency's SSPP. Updated or revised SSP's shall be submitted to the Department for review and written approval each time a major modification, extension or update is made to the system or as directed by the Department.
(c) A transit agency shall not publicly disclose the security aspects of its approved system security plan.
(d) The SSP shall include the following:
1. A policy statement that acknowledges the Department's oversight responsibility regarding the transit agency's internal safety and security review process;
2. A statement establishing the procedures for notification to the Department prior to the commencement of the transit agency's internal review;
3. An identification of the policies, goals and objectives for the security program endorsed by the transit agency's chief executive;
4. The process for managing threats and vulnerabilities during operations, and for major projects, extensions, new vehicles and equipment, including integration with the safety certification process;
5. An identification of the controls in place that address the security of visitors, passengers and employees;
6. The process for conducting internal security reviews to evaluate compliance and measure the effectiveness of the SSP; and
7. The process for making its SSP, along with any updates or revisions and accompanying procedures available to the Department for review and approval.
(e) The SSP shall be recommended by the System Security Manager and manager of the rail system and approved by the chief executive officer of the rail transit agency. If the rail transit agency has a transit police department, the signature of the senior police official is required. If a part of the system is under the security of a non-police security staff, a separate SSP for that portion shall be developed, recommended by the System Security Manager and approved by the chief executive officer of the rail transit agency.
