Campus Safety Partnerships
Georgia Tech Police Department law enforcement officers and staff work proactively with a wide variety of organizations both on- and off- campus, to build strong relationships and transparency for change and improvement. Working closely with student groups, Institute committees, task force groups, and Atlanta neighborhood associations enables all parties to share knowledge, increase understanding of issues, and develop respect for diversity of experience. Important campus safety partnerships include:
