The Agnes Scott Department of Public Safety serves Agnes Scott College with jurisdiction on campus and 500 yards beyond. The department is staffed 24 hours a day, seven days a week to provide immediate emergency response, performance of security patrols, monitoring of campus and providing other police services to the campus community.
The Agnes Scott Department of Public Safety is staffed by professionally trained officers who attained state certification through the Georgia Peace Officers Standards and Training Council. After the initial basic-mandate certification, the officers are required to maintain certification through in-service training, consisting of 20 hours of annual service curriculum. Members of the department maintain a close working relationship with local, state and federal law enforcement authorities and other emergency service agencies on matters related to campus security.
