Campus Public Safety
We at Lanier Technical College strive to provide a safe and secure educational environment
for our students, faculty, and staff. We provide professionally trained, licensed
law enforcement officers to accommodate any and all safety and security needs.
Lanier Technical College adheres to and supports “20 U.S.C. 1092 (f) Disclosure
of campus security policy and campus crime statistics” also known as the “The Clery
Act”. This law mandates that Colleges and Universities receiving Federal Aid report
on campus crimes every October. Furthermore, the law requires that this information
be available to students.
Lanier Technical College keeps its crime reports for a period of three years and
they are always available to students, faculty, and staff upon request. Additionally,
the crime statistics are available on the College website (www.laniertech.edu),
in the college Catalog and Student Handbook, and on a flyer available in the Student
Affairs Division reception area at each campus.
Any questions or concerns related to safety and security should be reported to the
security officer on duty or Paula Davidson in Administrative Services at 770-531-6310,
between the hours of 8 a.m. and 7 p.m., Monday through Thursday, excluding holidays.
To report any incident or crime on campus, call the switchboard at your respective
campus or center. If after normal school hours, call 911.
Campus Security is equipped to handle any and all emergencies that occur on campus.
This includes, but is not limited to, domestic situations, student misconduct, traffic

Health Emergency Procedure
In case of a health emergency, the following should be done:
Emergency procedures are outlined in the Catalog
and Student Handbook located on the college website at www.laniertech.edu.
Lanier Technical College utilizes the E2Campus for emergency notifications. The
E2Campus system is a
notification system utilized to communicate with the College's students and employees
should an emergency situation arise. This system is only used in safety/health emergency
situations and to announce the closing of the College for inclement weather. Students
and employees may choose to sign up to receive these notifications by text message
and/or email through the Lanier Technical College website (www.laniertech.edu). Although the registration for the system
is not mandatory, the College encourages all students and employees to sign up for
these notifications. The President, Vice Presidents and Deans of the College may
initiate and send these notifications. The President will generally evaluate the
situation and determine if the situation warrants that a notification be sent. If
the President is not available, the Vice President or Dean in the administrative
role at the time the emergency occurs will make that determination. The notification
will be sent as soon as possible if it is determined that the emergency may affect
the safety and/or health of the students and employees. If the situation extends
to the larger community, the President or his designee will inform the appropriate
authorities as necessary. The Vice President of Technology sends a test alert annually
to verify that the system is working properly.
Health, Safety, and Physical Operation Plans
The Health and Safety Plan and the Physical Operation Plan are available to students
by calling the Office of the Vice President of Administrative Services at 770-531-6310.
