View policy pdf: Weapons Firearms Policy

Before processing any requisition involving the purchase of a firearm/weapon that is required to support an authorized departmental function or project, the requesting department bears ultimate responsibility in ensuring safe handling procedures within their organizational unit.  Safe handling procedures address both firearm/weapon storage and proper firearm/weapon use.  All firearm/weapon purchases must be approved in advance by the UGA Chief of Police.
