Columbus Tech gets police department

Columbus Technical College is celebrating the formation of its own police department on campus.

The three sworn and certified police officers will serve alongside seven security personnel and have full arrest powers.

All three officers are veterans of the Muscogee County Sheriff's Department.

New Columbus Tech Police Chief Sam Prophet says it will make the campus safer.

The three officers have a combined 55 years of law enforcement experience.
