OSU Students Question Police About Campus Safety
COLUMBUS (Tara Morgan) -- More OSU students are now in tune with how police handle campus safety.
About two hundred students turned out for a panel discussion at the Ohio Union Tuesday night.
OSU's Police Chief as well as the Deputy Chief for Columbus Police answered questions ranging from what to do about bike thefts to mass shootings.
"It seemed like Ohio State is such a big school the possibility of that happening is greater than perhaps a smaller school maybe," said first year student Patrick Gill.
Police pointed students to the University's Emergency Management Plan on OSU's web site.
"It is refreshing to see students that are actually aware of their surroundings and want the information so they can act on it," said Columbus Police Deputy Chief Thomas Quinlan.
Gill left the meeting more confident.
"I'll definitely try now to be more vigilant of things going on whether it's something of that scale or just something as small as a crime happening on the corner of the road," said Gill.
The panel also made clear the difference between public safety notices when there's a chance for reoccuring crimes like robberies and Buckeye Alerts for more imminent threats.
