Crime Prevention Education
Education is key to crime prevention. That’s why educating the campus community is at the heart of the Otterbein University Police Department’s mission. From slideshows to real-world demonstrations, we will make sure you are educated about preventing and responding to crime.
As a service to our campus community, we have crime prevention brochures and other printed materials available at the Police Department. We also lead crime prevention programs emphasizing security and safety procedures for students and faculty/staff members upon request. In addition, we present crime prevention and security briefings to parents and students at all orientation sessions prior to the beginning of the academic year.
