Types of Patrol

Foot Patrol
The majority of patrol is done by officers walking around campus and the residential areas to include academic buildings. This allows the officers to have a more personal interaction with students, staff, and faculty.

Bicycle Patrol
Bicycle patrol is a supplement of the foot patrol.

Motorized Patrol
The Armstrong Police uses motorized patrol to increase their response time. Motorized patrols consist of police cruisers as well as All-Terrain Vehicles. While the cruisers are limited to the roadways, the ATVs can maneuver between buildings, on sidewalks, and wooded areas on campus.
 

Patrol Services

Motorist Assistance
Motorist assistance is done by the University Police for stranded motorists at AASU. At least one duty officer is carrying a battery jumpstart box in his or her patrol car. During the daylight hours, the jumpstarts are done by the patrollers, but the officers provide this service free of charge twenty-four hours a day. Officers are not allowed to open locked vehicles but can provide phone numbers of area locksmiths.

Secured Building Access
Secure building access is supervised through the Armstrong Police. Any student, faculty, or staff member must stop by the Armstrong Police Department or call to be verified, then an officer will assist you in gaining access to your office or lab.

If you are a student attempting to gain access to a lab or classroom, you must first be on an access roster provided by the department/instructor in which you are working. Friends, relatives or especially children are not permitted access with you into the building.
 

About the Division

The Armstrong Atlantic State University Police Department is a full-service law enforcement agency. University Police officers have statutory police authority as outlined in Georgia Code 20-8-2 and in accordance with the Georgia Peace Officers Standards and Training Council, and have police authority on all university property under the direct control of the Board of Regents and property within a radius of 500 yards beyond. The officers are trained at the Southeast Georgia Police Academy, Armstrong Atlantic State University and receive additional in-service training in first aid, firearms, drug identification, legal issue updates, etc. Officers are responsible for a full range of police and public safety fire and medical emergencies, traffic accidents, the enforcement of laws including drug and liquor law violations, and all other incidents requiring police service.

Members of the community are encouraged to report all criminal offenses to the University Police. In an effort to facilitate prompt reporting of offenses, the University Police Department's emergency telephone number is published in the Armstrong telephone directory, and is posted in all student housing facilities.  Armstrong Atlantic State University maintains a close working relationship with surrounding municipal police departments and the County Sheriff's Department. However, since all campus organizations are housed within the jurisdiction of the University Police, all crime statistics generated from those locations are monitored and reported by the University Police. Local law enforcement agencies do not formally report statistics of off-campus student arrests. However, specific information is reciprocated to these agencies for investigative purposes on a case by case basis.
