NO WEAPONS POLICY

GeorgiaHighlands Collegebelieves it is important to establish a clear policy that specifically addresses weapons in the workplace.  Georgia Highlands College prohibits all persons who enter the college property from carrying a handgun, firearm, or prohibited weapon of any kind onto the property regardless of whether the person is licensed to carry the weapon or not.  The only exceptions to this policy are police officers, security guards, or other law enforcement persons who are on duty and performing in an official capacity.

This policy also prohibits weapons at any College sponsored functions such as parties or picnics.  Prohibited weapons include any form of weapon or explosive restricted under local, state, or federal regulation.  This includes all firearms, illegal knives, or other weapons covered by the law.  (Legal, chemical-dispensing devices such as pepper sprays that are sold commercially for personal protection are not covered by this policy.)  You are responsible for making sure that any potentially covered item you possess is not prohibited by this policy.  If you have a question about whether an item is covered by this policy, or if you become aware of anyone violating this policy, please report it to Security or Human Resources immediately.  For additional and more detailed information on this Policy please consult the Georgia Highlands College Policy and Procedures Manual.
