Possession of Weapons
Galveston College prohibits all employees and students from possessing weapons, concealed or otherwise, except law enforcement personnel who are authorized to carry a weapon. A person commits an offense if the person knowingly, intentionally, or recklessly possesses a firearm, illegal knife, or any prohibited weapon listed in FLBF Local, on the College campuses or any grounds or buildings in which an activity is sponsored. This includes all College vehicles. Violations of this policy will result in disciplinary action including termination of employment and criminal prosecution.
