Meet the New Assistant Chief

Angie Lawson is the new Assistant Chief of Campus Police at Vol State. She joins us after 12 years of service with the Gallatin Police Department, most recently as Master Patrol Officer. Lawson has worked in patrol and as a court liaison during her career with Gallatin Police.

"I always wanted to do more than just tickets and traffic stops," Lawson said. "As a liaison officer I learned both sides of the law. That position also gave me experience on the administrative side of things."

Lawson received her Law Enforcement Certification in 2001, Basic Criminal Investigations Certification in 2006 and Field Training Officer Certification in 2007.

"Working on the streets and working in a college environment can be different. In the Gallatin Police Department we stressed community policing. We would get out of the car and meet people. And I've seen that here. It's wonderful how open people are to new ideas. It's community policing here, as well."

Join us in welcoming Assistant Chief Lawson to campus.
