Any member of the campus community that feels uncomfortable exiting a campus building may request a police escort from their location to their personal vehicle or next work assignment. The individual should contact the Middle Georgia State University (MGA) police dispatcher of the relevant campus police department for the requesting individual’s location. (Example: If located on the Eastman campus, contact the MGA Eastman Campus police department.)

The MGA Police Department will provide escort to employees, who, within the scope of their employment, are required to carry large amounts of University funds from one location to another. The assigned Officer will remain close to the person in possession of the funds during the escort and will ensure that the person responsible for the funds remain with the funds throughout the escort. As a rule Officers will have no contact with the actual monies except to assist by carrying locked money containers.

The MGA Police Department will also transport funds for the University to local financial institutions as needed.
