IN THE NEWS: Cassi Shaffer named Ohio State’s officer of the year

The Lantern recently published the story of The Ohio State University police officer Officer Cassi Shaffer and how her humble upbringing has led to a lifetime of service.

“As a child, we didn’t have a lot,” Shaffer told The Lantern. “So, I learned the importance of helping other people when you can. I go out of my way to help people.”

Shaffer was honored as OSUPD's Officer of the Year during an award ceremony on January 24, 2018 and days later received a standing ovation during the Ohio State men's hockey game versus Michigan.
