Public Safety Advisory Committee

Public Safety Advisory Committee

On July 27, 2020, Ohio State’s Department of Public Safety held its initial, introductory meeting of a newly created standing Public Safety Advisory Committee (PSAC) composed of Ohio State students, faculty, and staff. All divisions within the Department of Public Safety consult with the committee, with the goal of obtaining their feedback and assistance in their work toward enhancing the safety and well-being of all members of our university community. The committee discusses a wide variety of topics, including the exploration of new programs, continuous operational improvement initiatives, safety notices, community outreach and engagement, training opportunities, crime trends, safety risks, crime prevention strategies, and compliance with best practices and regulations. The PSAC meets periodically throughout the spring and autumn semesters, no less than four times annually. After the introductory meeting, notes have been kept for each meeting. Click on the links below to see a summary of the discussions that have occurred to date on the Public Safety Advisory Committee. University community members are encouraged to contact any committee member, or Monica Moll, Director of Public Safety, with any questions or ideas.
