AUGUSTA, GA (WFXG) -

Dr. George C. Bradley, Paine College president, is pleased to announce its Campus Safety Department transition to the Paine College Police Department.

Dr. George C. Bradley stated, "Our students' safety is priority. The Paine College Police Department will act as a deterrence to individuals who will want to impede instruction in our educational environment".

Since his arrival, Chief Joseph Nelson, a 2010 graduate of the Georgia Chief of Police Academy and former Chief of Police of Thomson, Georgia, has increased the number of certified police officers at the College to seven, bringing the Department's staff to a total of thirteen. In addition, Chief Nelson is certified in the State of Georgia in the following areas: Criminal Investigation, Criminal Procedures, Crime Scene Technician, Interviews and Interrogation.

The Paine College Police Department (PCPD) now has total arrest authority in the State of Georgia. The College has also been approved and granted an Originating Agency Identifier (ORI) number, assigned by the FBI Criminal Justice Information Services to criminal justice agencies. The ORI is used to identify the agency, in this case the PCPD, in transactions on the state's database or in criminal history source document submissions. In addition, it is used to validate criminal history record requests and route criminal history record responses.

The College is in the final stages of the transition.  Brandon Brown, Vice President of Institutional Advancement, commented, "Our new Chief has successfully put together the resources to allow the College to transition from Campus Safety to a Police Department".
