The Georgia Institute of Technology Police Department is a fully-operational state agency tasked with fostering a secure environment conducive to the experience of faculty, staff, students, and visitors. The Police Department at the Savannah campus is here to serve you and is available to answer any questions about campus safety and security.
To help ensure campus safety, GT-S uses a security company that works in conjunction with the Georgia Institute of Technology Police Department during the after hours and weekends. Though if an emergency arises please call 911 or 9-911 if using a campus phone.
Emergency Notification System
As part of Georgia Tech's ongoing effort to safeguard students, faculty and staff, the Institute has implemented a new emergency communications system. Known as the GT Emergency Notification System (GTENS), the system allows students, faculty and staff to receive time-sensitive emergency messages in the form of e-mail, voice mail, and text messages concerning the Savannah Campus.
Anyone with a Georgia Tech e-mail address will receive emergency alerts on their computers. However, in order to receive text messages and voice mail alerts, members of the campus community will be asked to provide a mobile phone number. While participation in the text and voice messaging notification is optional, enrolling is strongly encouraged. The information supplied is considered confidential and will not be shared. Participants will only be contacted through the system in the event of an emergency.
To sign up for GT Emergency Notification System text and voice mail option, please log into PASSPORT.
