Cameras and Photography
FLETC policy prohibits taking identifiable facial photos of students or staff without prior permission of the individuals involved. In addition, it is against the law for certain agency personnel to be photographed under any circumstances. (This policy stems from a need to protect criminal investigators who may perform undercover work.) Although this policy does not preclude “fond memory” type photographs or photography necessary as a part of a course of instruction, students and their visitors are required to adhere to this policy and remain sensitive to its purpose and intent. Please report all suspicious circumstances involving photographic film images being taken to the FLETC Security and Emergency Management Division at 912-267-2102. Types of incidents include, but are not limited to: Anyone seeming to be capturing images of individuals without their knowledge; Anyone making a detailed record of all or any part of the FLETC installation; Anyone attempting to obtain class pictures that they themselves are not physically in.
