Campus Security Information

This information is required under Public Law 102-26.  The following data will provide you with campus security policies and statistics concerning the occurrence of criminal offenses on campus property, non-campus building/property, and public property.

Should you witness a crime in process or are a victim of a crime, Ohio State College of Barber Styling requests that you follow this procedure:

During school hours, notify the Exeutive Administrative Director and the Whitehall police department immediately at 614-237-6333.

If a crime occurs during non-school hours and no faculty or staff member is available, notify the Whitehall police department immediately and the Exeutive Administrative Director as soon as possible during normal business hours.

Remember:  Preserving evidence for proof of a criminal offense is very important.

Ohio State College of Barber Styling does not recognize any off campus student organizations that would be covered under this act.

The purpose and authority of campus security personnel is limited to securing the premises and protecting the facility.  The enforcement authority of campus security personnel is limited to the enforcement of school rules and regulations.  Incidents that go beyond the scope of campus security personnel are referred to and investigated by the local law enforcement agency (if applicable).

All crimes that are reported will be posted in the Administrative Office within a day of the reporting.

To ensure the accurate and prompt reporting of all crimes, authorized administrative personnel willtake a full writtenstatement from involved parties and witnesses at all reported emergency or criminal incidents.  The written statements are included as part of a written report and such statements may be used by campus security personnel (if applicable) and local/state law enforcement authorities for the purpose of criminal apprehension and/or crime prevention.  Criminal incidents may also be reviewed by the institution's administrative staff for the purpose of disciplinary action.

All students are informed about school security procedures and practices during orientation at the school.

Everyone should remember that personal safety begins with you.  The following should be considered:
• When walking to the school, be aware of who and what is around you.  Try not to walk alone and avoid streets and
secluded pathways or alleyways.
• Do not carry large amounts of cash.
• Keep your motor vehicle in good running condition.  Always lock your car and remove all packages and any valuables.
Try to park in a well lighted area.  Students are to park out in front of the school.
• Do not leave your equipment, books or personal property unattended in the classroom, student break room or clinic area.
Lockers are issued to students who request one.
