The Police Department is dedicated to the Community Policing Philosophy; providing pro-active service through inter-departmental and inter-agency collaboration to meet the ever-changing needs of the college community. We welcome input from the college community regarding security issues, needs, and concerns, and pledge to work as partners with the college community to provide quality police and security services.

In addition to providing high visibility patrols of the campus, the Athens Technical College Police and Security Officers provide a variety of services including parking enforcement, enforcement of smoking regulations, and safety escorts. They also investigate all criminal activity and motor vehicle accidents on campus.
