Our number one goal is to ensure that our campus is a safe place study and work. We strive for this ideal via a "Community Oriented Policing" philosophy, meaning our community always comes first.



The Police Department offers fingerprinting services to GSU community members on Wednesdays and Thursdays, 9 a.m.–9 p.m.
