Safety and Security
We take safety seriously.
At Clark State we are committed to campus safety and security. With various campus policies and procedures, training exercises and on-campus security, we strive to create the safest space possible for our students, staff, faculty and community.
We're proud of our close working relationships with the Springfield Police Department, Clark County Sheriff’s Office, Bellefontaine Police Department, Beavercreek Police Department and Xenia Police Division; as well as other federal, state and local law enforcement agencies.
The Campus Police Department for our Springfield locations are staffed by officers from the Springfield Police Department. We also employs cadets to assist with patrolling our grounds and facilities, in addition to providing safety escorts and battery jump starts. The Beavercreek location is staffed by a private security firm. The Bellefontaine location follows the procedures established by Ohio Hi-Point, including having the Bellefontaine Police Department respond in case of emergencies. Our Xenia location relies on services provided by the Xenia Police Division.
