The Georgia Tech Police Department is governed by the laws of the United States and the State of Georgia, as well as the rules and regulations of the City of Atlanta, the University System of Georgia, and the Georgia Institute of Technology.
Our Office of Professional Standards has developed a series of Standard Operating Procedures to guide the conduct of our employees to reflect best practices, and they are updated as often as needed. Our policies are reviewed by the Commission on Accreditation for Law Enforcement Agencies (CALEA) as part of the process of maintaining our status as a CALEA-accredited Law Enforcement Agency. To date, we have more than 100 policies, ranging from the type of uniforms we wear to our guidance on use of force.
We are providing direct links to our 5 Year Strategic Plan and our most important policies, to increase the public trust that is essential to good community policing strategies and accountability.
