The Waycross Campus has an officer on duty during regular business hours and provides private security after hours. Additionally, the Waycross Police Department responds to the campus after hours for law enforcement related issues. The Department is recognized by the Peace Officers Standards and Training (POST) Council as a police agency and its authority stems from Georgia law. All police officers are certified peace officers of the State of Georgia and certification comes only after successful attendance at a recognized police academy. Additionally, officers meet annual POST training requirements in order to retain their arrest powers.
