Our Training Division has one of the most critical functions in law enforcement. Our greatest responsibility in law enforcement is to the public. This is accomplished through a furtherance of education and training of our employees. Our employees receive the most innovative and current training available. We look to provide the Augusta University community with the best trained, highest skilled, and ethically upstanding public servants possible.
Our Training Division ensures all of our employees receive critical training that meets or exceeds the guidelines of the Georgia Police Officer Training and Standards Council. We ensure that our training also meets or exceeds the Governor’s Public Safety Initiative, the University System of Georgia’s policing in a Higher Education Environment curriculum, and current departmental goals and objectives.
All of our police officers are basic mandate certified, some have additional training such as:
Our Investigations Division works hard to solve every criminal case that occurs within our jurisdiction. All crimes reported to us are investigated, regardless of the legal severity of the crime.
Our Investigators provide assistance to Patrol Operations Division in conducting criminal investigations, and conduct follow-up investigations on crimes that occur within our jurisdiction.
