It is our objective that students, faculty, staff, and visitors find their time at North Greenville University to be rewarding, enjoyable, and safe.
We are all born-again Christians.
All officers are believers in our Lord Jesus Christ and have accepted him as their personal savior. We believe this affects the way we live in our everyday lives, including the way we serve at North Greenville University. As Christians, we strive to act in a way that will glorify Jesus Christ. Our purpose in Christ dictates how we enforce the rules of North Greenville University and the laws of the state of South Carolina.
We believe that each person is created in the image of God and is a person of worth and value. This truth affects the manner in which we interact with people. We treat people with respect. The uniqueness of each person requires that we care for each person as an individual. The officers of Campus Security are an integral part of the growth, development and care for students, faculty and staff.
We respect the law and the rules of North Greenville University.
We desire to live and act with integrity, courage, and professionalism.
We desire to continue our training and education to better prepare us for this responsibility.
In order to better serve this community and to be better prepared for the situations which may arise, we undergo consistent training, seminars, and practice scenarios in order to help us better perform our duties and responsibilities.
