Campus Security

Campus security is provided on the main campuses (Ben Hill-Irwin, Coffee, Valdosta, and Cook) by the Wiregrass Georgia Technical College (WGTC) Police Department. A police officer is on-duty at various times when students are present. These officers are sworn law enforcement officers of the WGTC Police Department and augmented when necessary by local law enforcement.

Wiregrass Georgia Technical College reports all violations of federal and state laws to the Wiregrass Georgia Technical College Police Department for appropriate action. Officers are dispatched to investigate all reports. Law enforcement reports that are applicable to incidents on any of the campuses are on file in the main office on the Valdosta campus.
