Safety Tips

Columbus State Community College places a high priority on the safety of its students and staff members. The Department of Public Safety strives to maintain our excellent safety record.

Although uniformed Campus Police Officers patrol the Columbus campus 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, it is crucial that the campus community take responsibility for its safety. 90% of campus crimes are crimes of opportunity. You reduce your chances of being a crime victim by reducing the opportunity. By watching out for yourself and others, we can all contribute to a safe campus environment.

Lock all car doors. Secure valuables in the trunk or out of sight, including GPS, laptops, textbooks, purses, briefcases etc.  Also, don't leave valuables unattended in buildings.  Don't hesitate to call Public Safety at 614-287-2525 to report suspicious people or activity.

Remember to abide by policies, local, state and federal laws. Campus Police Officers are Ohio certified law enforcement officers empowered to enforce traffic and criminal laws. First and foremost, they stand ready to assist you when needed. Be sure your driver's license, car insurance and car tags are current.
