Last Wednesday (May 29) the College of Coastal Georgia (CCGA) celebrated the opening of its new police station and college President Dr. Michelle Johnston cut her final ribbon before relocating to Americus where she will take over as president of Georgia Southwestern State University.

The College’s Plant Operations building recently underwent extensive renovation and will now also house the Campus Police Department including 14 officers. Chief Daniel Floyd has been named interim chief since Campus Police Chief Bryan Sipe recently retired from the College after 28 years and will now join the Glynn County Policed Department.

At her last official function as CCGA President Dr. Johnston spoke briefly to the group attending the ribbon cutting. Johnston said, “This new facility reflects the evolution of our campus’ continuous improvement. It is space appropriate for training and for people to come who need assistance. Safety is a key component at the College and we work hard to make sure our students feel safe.”

Chief Sipe said, “We worked with an architect for a year and a half on planning the new space. The College’s Police Department will be able to expand as needed as the College grows. The department will be able to support a student body of 10,000 to 15,000.”
