Crime Prevention and Security

Risk and Emergency Management works closely with campus police to provide safety and security training programs.

Theft Prevention

An unlocked bike, an unattended backpack, a cell phone on the seat of your car—they’re all tempting targets for thieves. It is very important that you keep your belongings with you when you are in public spaces, including libraries or other campus buildings. Use a free RFID (radio frequency identification device) to “Bug Your Bike”. For more details, click here. 

 Annual Security and Annual Safety Report

All U.S. universities are required to make data available about crimes committed on and around campus for the past three years. You can find the Ohio State data here. Note that the data reflects total crimes in those areas, not just those against students.
