June Meeting Agenda:

OHSU Student Council (SC)
6/6/2014, 12:00-1:00/1:30pm
Location: MRB 310
Called to order:

Attendees: K.C. Gilbert, Andrew Sloan, David Edwards, Monica Luttrell, Amelia Stoker, James Rohlfing, Adam Fox, Erich Knipschild, Heather Ennis, Karen Seresun, Laura Zeigen, Dana Director, Greg Moawad, Patrick Holmes, Alexandru Cioara

·         Welcome/Food/Drinks (10 minutes)
·         Approval of Past Minutes (1 minute)
o   Past minutes approved
·         Department of Public Safety (DPS): Senate Bill 565 Implementation- Greg Moawad
o   In 2011, Greg came to a Student Council meeting to talk about raising professionalism and emergency preparedness in Department of Public Safety
o   In 2008, OHSU convened the Critical Incident Readiness Task Force that looked at Portland Police Bureau’s ability to respond to the hill in a mass causality incident.  It was  found that there was a 7-15 minute response time
§  Found Portland Police cannot adequately provide coverage, and the Department of Public Safety lacks legal authority to protect the campus. 
§  Recommended OHSU should seek legislation to provide DPS with police officer authority and now has 24 state-certified police officers. 
§  It was also recommended that OHSU should arm DPS officers or contract with police agency for armed presence. Found contracting is unworkable due to service issues, low value and inadequate training levels.
§  Goal was to build something from the ground up partly due to the unique mental health needs of OHSU community.
o   2013’s Senate Bill 565 was set up to do this 
§  Two committees, training and policy, were set up.  Training included 130 hours of additional training around force mental health critical incident training. 
§  Annual training of 96 hours around mental health interactions that is 8-12 times the state standard
§  Policy team drafted changes on strategic disengagement that allows officers to extricate themselves in instances that risks to themselves or the individual outweighed the public good.  This is first in the nation policy and will hopefully decrease excessive force employed against the mentally ill. 
o   June 26th Greg will go to OHSU Board of Directors for permission to arm officers subject to completion of training program on September 15th.
o   CLSB will have one armed officer at night. Prepared to have armed officer at CLSB during daytime if needed. CHH officer will remain unarmed.
o   Majority of the officers will be on Marquam Hill
·         Student Volunteers to Co-lead Student Orientation Tours
o   Interdisciplinary tours for new student orientation
o   Monday, June 30, August 11, and Sept 29 from 1-6 PM from All-Hill Committee
o   Need more students to help give tours with administrators. If you would like to help, contact Karen.
