  • The studio’s front and side doors should be locked and all window coverings pulled in the late evening and early morning hours.
  • All staff are to know the whereabouts of the individuals in the studio at all times, including their unsupervised time as per their OISP.

  • In the event that someone suspicious is found on the premises, the Franklin County Sheriff’s Department should be called immediately at 911
