Georgia Highlands College’s Campus Police department is streamlining its efforts to respond to safety needs and requests with a centralized dispatch center. The new number for all GHC campus safety needs is 706-295-6347. The dispatch center, contracted through the National Association of Campus Safety Administrators, will centrally dispatch all campus police calls for services to each of GHC’s locations (excluding Marietta).  When calling the new dispatch number, callers are presented with three options. Option 1 is for emergency situations. Option 2 will put a caller in touch with a campus safety officer, for non-emergency needs, while option 3 will reach out to Chief Horace directly for non-emergency requests.


From the state: Georgia’s net tax collections in September totaled roughly $2.25 billion for an increase of $15.7 million, or 0.7 percent, compared to last year when net tax collections totaled $2.23 billion. Year-to-date, net tax revenue collections totaled $5.83 billion for an increase of $21.1 million, or 0.4 percent, compared to September Fiscal Year (FY) 2019.
