The Department of Public Safety exists to support the Columbia Metropolitan Airport’s mission to provide the airport community and those traveling within, a safe and peaceful environment through professional law enforcement and fire rescue services.
In 2016 the Columbia Metropolitan Airport’s Public Safety Department moved into a brand new 19,000 sq. ft., state-of-the-art facility designed to be environmentally friendly and provide the department with the resources needed to best serve the airport and its passengers.
All Columbia Airport Public Safety Officers are dual certified. These Officers have been through hundreds of hours of training. The Officers must continue taking courses after the initial certification to stay informed on laws and new equipment.
