Campus Safety & Police

The Hocking College Police Department is located behind Light and Oakley Halls off of Loop Road and is next to the Hocking Heights Residence Hall. The department is a full service police agency that derives its authority from Ohio Revised Code Section 3345.04. The primary objective of the department is to provide a safe and healthy environment that enhances campus living and learning experiences and compliments the College's educational mission.

The department has officers on duty 24 hours-per-day, 365 days per year, and works closely with Nelsonville Police Department in the enforcement of federal, state and local statutes, as well as college regulations. The officers are uniformed and armed, commissioned by the college with full enforcement and arrest powers, and provide vehicle and foot patrols throughout the college community.
