We understand that people can be angry when they feel that matters about which they feel strongly are not being dealt with as they wish. However, we consider it unacceptable when that anger escalates into aggression or abuse towards our staff or residents. Aggressive or abusive behavior includes language that may cause staff to feel afraid or threatened, derogatory remarks and offensive language. We also consider inflammatory statements, remarks of a discriminatory nature and unsubstantiated allegations to be abusive behavior. The Perry Township Police Department may be notified of aggressive or abusive behavior per ORC § 2917.11(A)(2); this will always be the case if physical violence is used or threatened.
