OSUPD Supports Journalism Students Through Mock Crime Scenario

The Ohio State University Police Division participated in the creation of a mock crime scenario with Ohio State journalism students on Wednesday, October 11th. The exercise was designed by journalism professor Nicole Kraft and OSUPD staff to prepare students on how to cover a breaking news story. The students gathered outside Blankenship Hall to interview an OSUPD lieutenant and a pair of witnesses about the scripted crime. The students were then brought into Blankenship Hall for a briefing from OSUPD Chief Craig Stone. Throughout, the students used iPads to take pictures, videos, notes and tweet the latest news. Beginning in the autumn of 2018, first-year students at Ohio State will receive an iPad to enhance their learning experience.
