About the Police Department

In an effort to enhance security on the Lanier Technical College and in compliance with O.C.G.A 20-8-2 a Campus Police Department was created in September of 2016. Lanier Technical College Police are sworn police officers and have full law enforcement authority, including powers of arrest in and upon all property owned or leased by the college. The Campus Police possess full police powers and are charged with the responsibility of enforcing all college rules and regulations as well as the local, state and federal laws, statutes, and ordinances. The department also maintains a close relationship with local, state, and federal law enforcement agencies.

The Lanier Technical College Police Department is a full service, professional law enforcement agency that is committed to providing a safe and secure educational environment for students, staff, faculty and visitors. The Police Department is dedicated to the Community Policing Philosophy; providing pro-active service through inter-departmental and inter-agency collaboration to meet the ever-changing needs of the college community. We welcome input from the college community regarding security issues, needs, and concerns, and pledge to work as partners with the college community to provide quality police and security services.

In addition to providing high visibility patrols of the campus, the Lanier Technical College Police and Security Officers provide a variety of services including parking enforcement, enforcement of smoking regulations, and safety escorts. They also investigate all criminal activity and motor vehicle accidents on campus.

I would encourage you to feel free to get to know the Police and Security Officers on the Lanier Technical College campuses. We are here to keep you safe and assist you with all your security needs. I think you will find our officers friendly and approachable and willing to assist you in any way possible.

I urge you to keep safety in mind at all times and if I may ever be of assistance to you in any way please do not hesitate to call upon me at any time.
