Limestone University Officers are trained and registered by state approved instructors and licensed by the South Carolina Law Enforcement Division (SLED). Limestone University Campus Safety Officers, being licensed by the South Carolina Law Enforcement Division (SLED), have the same powers and authority as Deputy Sheriffs(South Carolina State Law 40-18-80), including the authority to make arrests for misdemeanors and felonies (South Carolina State Law 40-18-110) and the ability to act on probable cause, conduct search and seizures, and investigate criminal activity.
Officers direct daily and special event traffic and parking. They reserve parking spaces for special guests. They seek to ensure the safety of drivers and pedestrians while making traffic flow move as smoothly as possible and parking as convenient as possible.
The department works closely with the Gaffney Police Department and the Cherokee Sheriff’s Office who both have jurisdiction on the Limestone University campus. There is currently a memorandum of understanding with the city of Gaffney outlining investigative roles between the agencies.
