When possible, University Police officers assist motorists with battery jump-offs.
University Police play a vital role at CSU,
enforcing state and local laws and ensuring the safety of students,
faculty, staff and campus visitors.
Officers of the police force go through the same training required of law enforcement professionals throughout Georgia and have the same arrest powers. Led by Police Chief Rus Drew (right), the force also has an assistant chief, three division lieutenants and three shift sergeants.
Headquarters for University Police is located next to the Elizabeth Bradley Turner Center, on the corner of College Drive and East Lindsey Drive. Several officers also work from a police station on the CSU RiverPark campus in downtown Columbus.
Patrol officers regularly lock, unlock and check all university buildings and other property. CSU police also patrol CSU apartment complexes, working closely with resident assistants who are on duty from 7 p.m. to 11 p.m. on weekdays and 7 p.m. to 1 a.m. on weekends. Officers patrol in marked vehicles, on bicycle and on foot.
Police also work with CSU Plant Operations to ensure campus safety, submitting work orders for lights, locks, windows, doors and other safety needs. Faculty, staff and students are encouraged to report safety-related issues to Plant Operations through eQuest in CougarNet.
There's no such thing as a crime-free campus, but based on The Daily Beast's rankings, these schools come very close.
