Atlanta, Georgia

Chief Vernon Worthy is the Chief of Police at the historic all-black, male liberal arts Morehouse College ( in Atlanta, Georgia. He is a veteran law enforcement professional with more than 44 years in the areas of enforcement, supervision, management, and administration. Chief Worthy is an active member of the International Association of Campus Law Enforcement Coordinators; International Association of Chiefs of Police; Georgia Association of Campus Law Enforcement Coordinators; the Georgia Chapter of National Organization of Black Law Enforcement Executives (NOBLE); and Georgia Association of Chiefs of Police. He is also a charter and founding member of the Historically Black Universities and Colleges Law Enforcement and Executives and Administrators Association.

Chief Worthy spent 28+ years moving up the ranks with the Atlanta Police Department. As police commander, he not only managed special investigations, intelligence, and protection of dignitaries, but also served as liaison to federalized investigative groups. Upon retirement from the Atlanta Police Department, Chief Worthy went directly to the Atlanta Committee for the Olympic Games, serving as a security planner, venue security for the aquatic center, and security manager for venues in the Para-Olympic Games following the 1996 Summer Games.
Upon the conclusion of these Games, Chief Worthy was appointed to his current position at Morehouse College. Morehouse College is located in the Atlanta University Center adjacent to Clark Atlanta University, Spelman College, Morehouse School of Medicine, and the Interdenominational Theological Center. Chief Worthy helped design the Emergency Response Plan which addresses natural disasters, power outages, criminal activities, riots, civil disturbances, and deaths on campus. This system includes students, staff, faculty, and parents who subscribe to the system.
Morehouse College is actively investigating an audible notification system, particularly a system which includes visual aid and PA override. Attending the conference for the second time, Chief Worthy hopes to coordinate with other national institutions who are exploring best practices and new concepts, and to hopefully gain some insight into how other learning institutions optimize and integrate emergency notification systems.
