COLUMBUS, Ohio  — Ohio State University trustees have approved a resolution allowing off-duty officers from a select number of law enforcement agencies to carry concealed guns on campus so they can serve as first responders if needed.

WCMH-TV reports the policy applies to the university's police force, the Columbus Police Department, Franklin County Sheriff's Office and the State Highway Patrol.

The university said in a statement that off-duty officers from those agencies can carry concealed weapons into buildings and venues anywhere on campus.
