9/20/2012 Email: Private Security (Academic) Commander & Instructor - Notice of changes effective Jan. 1, 2013

9/24/2012

Private Security (Academic) Commander/Instructor,

The Ohio Peace Officer Training Commission met September 20th and approved curriculum changes for the Private Security Training program. The curriculum changes and corresponding lesson plans will become effective for schools beginning on or after, January 1, 2013. Please refer to the attached “Need to Know” document and Curriculum Audit Sheet for specific information. Curriculum revisions may include, but are not limited to, changes in Student Performance Objectives, legislation, instructor qualifications, hours, ratios, or officer safety issues and instructional techniques.

The revised curriculum and related documents will again be available on www.OHLEG.org. In an effort to be more user friendly, Private Security curriculum,  effective January 1, 2013 or later,  will be available for “one-click” download. This feature will allow all the curriculum documents to be saved at one time to your personal computer. The option of saving individual files will remain available. Our goal is to have the curriculum posted by November 1st.

We will continue to communicate electronically with you about changes that may affect the status of your certifications, academies, and/or instructors, primarily by e-mail. Please ensure that we have your current email address on file. It is your responsibility to provide us with your current contact information.  Please visit our website atwww.OhioAttorneyGeneral.gov/OPOTAUpdate to update your e-mail, phone number, and address.

As always, please contact your assigned Certification or Compliance Officer with any questions about how these changes may affect you.  You may also contact the Education and Policy Section, at 740-845-2700, for any specific curriculum questions.
