Welcome to our department's web pages.

I appreciate you taking the time to become better informed about the resources available at our Public Safety Department. Our officers are all sworn certified Police Officers certified through the Georgia Peace Officer Standards and Training Council, and they are willing to assist you.

The Campus Sex Crimes Prevention Act requires our institution to issue a statement advising the campus community where law enforcement agency information concerning registered sex offenders may be obtained. It also requires sex offenders, already required to registered in a state, to provide notice of each institution of higher education in that state at which the person is employed, carries on a vocation, or is a student. The web site address for securing the related information is: http://ganet.org/gbi/sorsch.cgi
Our University also provides you with information about your safety and security on campus. You can find this information in our Annual Security Report or our Crime Statitics on file with the U.S. Department of Education via the web at http://ope.ed.gov/security.
