In the early morning hours of August 24, 2009, Mr. Philip Kara, an Emory University Community Service Officer, was tragically killed in a motor vehicle crash while traveling home from work. The Emory Police Department would like to dedicate this page to his memory. He is missed.
The Emory Police Department employs four Community Service Officers. They are dispatched through the Police Communications Division. They provide a tremendous amount of help and operational support to the sworn officers of the department, from assisting with crowd control during special events to providing assistance to motorists in the community. They provide facility security by locking, closing, and checking buildings after normal business hours. They also provide after hours security escorts.
