Ga Sou PD recertified

Written by  Georgia Southern University Thursday, 13 March 2014 11:46

  The Georgia Southern University Police Department has again received state certification status from the Georgia Association of Chiefs of Police and recognized as  one of the top law enforcement agencies in the state.


  Of more than 500 agencies in the state, approximately 100 are certified and among those, only four are universities.  The Georgia Southern University Police Department is the only law enforcement agency in the area certified by the Association.


  President Brooks Keel said it is a great honor for the  University’s Police Department to receive this certification, and an even greater honor to be one of only four universities in the state to have received this status.  “Our public safety officials and staff go the extra mile to ensure our campus is safe, which is important for our community, students and parents.”


  Michael J. Russell, Chief of Police at Georgia Southern University, said he couldn’t be more proud of the men and women of the University Police Department.  “They are true professionals and this is a huge accomplishment for them. They work hard every day to make the campus safe and secure, and this is a well deserved honor.”


  Georgia Southern’s Police Department was initially certified in October 2010 after nearly a year of setting procedures, writing policies and conducting training.  In October of 2013, the Department recertified.
