Safety walk in University District

Local law enforcement and employees from The Ohio State University’s Office of Student Life will canvass the University District this week to provide helpful safety resources to students.

On Friday, Nov. 18, members of the university’s joint patrol program – a partnership between the Ohio State University Police Division and Columbus Division of Police to patrol the off-campus area – will join volunteers from Student Life, Undergraduate Student Government, Administration and Planning and more to go through the University District on an educational safety walk.

Students in the area will also be advised on how to protect their homes if traveling away for the Thanksgiving break.
