The Berry College Police Department is charged with the responsibilities of providing life safety and property protection. To meet these important responsibilities, the college maintains a force of state certified police officers whose duties are integrated to provide law enforcement, crime prevention and parking control/enforcement.

Officers are on duty 24 hours a day, seven days a week. The department strives to contribute to the academic environment by performing professional law enforcement tasks with a positive, service-oriented and educational approach. Officers receive their law enforcement authority through the Official Code of Georgia Annotated, Code Sections 20-8-2. There are 17 staff positions in the department: thirteen police officers, two communication officers, an office administrator and an office manager. All police officers are certified by the Georgia Peace Officer Standards and Training Council after completing the 404 hour basic mandate training course. They are then required to complete a minimum of 20 hours of annual training to maintain their peace officer certification. Officers averaged over 40 training hours during 2006. They are authorized full police powers including the power of arrest on all college property.

The department maintains a close working and personal relationship with local emergency agencies and their members. They come together through meetings, training, and investigative follow-ups. Information is freely shared between local agencies. The department maintains a written agreement with the Floyd County Police Department and the Rome & Floyd County E-911 Center for access to national and state crime information computers (NCIC & GCIC).

Patrol: Officers patrol the campus via marked and unmarked patrol units and foot patrol to deter acts of crime and to detect and intervene when criminal activity occurs. They respond and follow-up on all reported crimes. In addition to patrol duties, officers investigate traffic accidents, assist in medical emergencies, provide limited motorist assistance, enforce campus parking and traffic regulations and provide support for many campus activities and events.

The campus-wide emergency number is (706) 236-2262 or ext. 2262 from on-campus phones.
