The Georgia State University Police Department (GSUPD) works across the university’s six campuses throughout metro Atlanta to protect the academic environment from crime and disruption.
Operating 24 hours a day, seven days a week, GSUPD’s divisions include Patrol, Security, Communications, Investigations, Special Teams and Office of Emergency Management. The Community Outreach Division offers crime prevention awareness training and operates the Homeless Outreach Proactive Engagement (HOPE) program. The Office of Professional Standards oversees the department’s certification by three separate accreditation bodies.
GSUPD maintains working relationships and written agreements with nearly two dozen law enforcement partners and security agencies throughout the metro area to investigate crimes and suspicious activity, including criminal activity by students at off-campus locations of officially recognized student organizations.
GSUPD’s Key Control office manages and secures access to Georgia State facilities, while security guards provide a variety of essential duties, including monitoring access, reporting emergencies and providing security escorts.
