Policing & Security Policies
Campus Law Enforcement
The Northeast Ohio Medical University Police Department (NPD) is recognized as a police department through section 3345.04 of the Ohio Revised Code. All commissioned officers of the department have successfully graduated from a state-approved peace officer training academy, and hold the same authority and powers of arrest as any certified police officer in the state of Ohio. NPD is the primary investigating agency of all criminal acts and incidents that occur on campus.
NPD coordinates regularly with local law enforcement as needed to provide extra security for events, conduct investigations, and exchange information. The Portage County Sheriff’s Office (PCSO) and the Ohio State Highway Patrol have jurisdiction on the NEOMED campus. NEOMED has a memorandum of understanding (MOU) with PCSO for dispatching services. PCSO provides
all dispatching for NPD offi cers. NPD and PCSO both utilize MARCS radios. On NPD radios, both the NPD channel and the PCSO channel are programmed allowing NPD offi cers to communicate directly with a Deputy from PCSO if necessary.
NPD and PCSO also have a mutual aid agreement. This agreement allows PCSO to dispatch an NPD officer off campus, if necessary, to provide assistance to a PCSO Deputy.
