Statement from the Chief

Welcome to Virginia Intermont and the campus security office.  Our role is to work toward ensuring the safety of all individuals while on campus and provide for the security of all properties of the college. Although no community in today’s society can be completely risk free, the Virginia Intermont Security Office is dedicated to providing a safe and secure atmosphere conducive to learning.

This office works toward security partnerships with students, staff, faculty, administration and guests, as well as with local law enforcement agencies to foster a safe and comfortable environment.  The college designs policies and regulations, not to restrict your freedom, but to ensure that the rights and privileges of all are protected.

As the chief of campus security, and on behalf of all the campus security officers, we look forward to being of service to you as you join our community and ask that you work with us to make our community safe and secure.

Jerry O’Dell
Director of Security
