Campus Safety and Security
Campus security is provided by the Augusta Technical College Police Department. A police officer is on-duty at various times when students are present. These officers are sworn law enforcement officers and augmented when necessary by local law enforcement or the Georgia State Patrol. Officers are dispatched to investigate all reports.
We at Augusta Technical College are committed to providing a safe campus environment, and we ask that everyone takes ownership of this goal. We have undertaken many important institutional efforts to address safety and security issues, and urge you to review the information about campus safety measures, reporting crimes and other emergencies, as well as the procedures and policies designed to protect our college community. We have no greater priority than the safety of our students, faculty, staff, and visitors, but a truly safe campus can only be achieved through the cooperation of everyone.
We strive to foster an environment in which individuals feel safe to attend, learn, and work. Our goals are principles of responsibility and respect. These values are essential to our community and serve as the foundation for productivity and success. A safe, supportive campus can be achieved with everyone’s cooperation. SEE Something. SAY Something.

Augusta Technical College utilizes a computer software program to manage our inventory of hazardous materials and safety data sheets. This program is called MSDSonline, and can be found on this website.
MSDSonline provides a comprehensive database of all hazardous materials on campus and related safety information. Search by material, campus, or program to find the data you need in order to safely use a certain material, or to respond to an emergency.
Be Prepared to Act
Safety and security is everyone’s business. Suspected safety violations, hazards, and suspicious activity should be reported to the nearest Augusta Technical College employee in a timely manner.
Be aware of your surroundings and who is around. Do not become a victim by not being safe.
