The offices of Public Safety are located in Gordon Hall and are open 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. The sworn officers, communications, and parking enforcement staff are proud to serve the Gordon State College community.

The department employs twenty trained officers who are certified by the Peace Officers Standards and Training Council of Georgia, four civilian employees, and five security officers. Any city police officer or county deputy sheriff receives this same certification before they can be certified as law enforcement officers in Georgia.

At Gordon State College, these officers enforce the state laws as well as local ordinances.

They issue citations, make arrests, and work vehicle accidents. They also lock and unlock campus buildings, assist motorists, patrol the campus on foot, bicycle or in marked patrol vehicles.

Crime reports may be made at any time, either in person, online or by telephone at 678.359.5111. Crimes off campus should be reported to the Barnesville Police Department or Lamar County Sheriff's Department (911).

The Gordon State College Department of Public Safety is a member of the Georgia Association of Campus Law Enforcement Administrators and the Georgia Association of Chiefs of Police. Please feel free to stop by Gordon Hall to learn more about the Public Safety operation or call the office at 678. 359. 5101 and speak to an officer or one of the staff. Be careful out there!
