Cheating in math classes

Hi everyone. I'm a 3rd year math education student and I
have a question. I was wondering if anybody would be
interested in sharing their personal policy on cheating and
plagarism. In my school days, I've seen everything from
the let it go and "catch it next time" approach to giving
the student a zero on the assignment and reviewing all
previous work from the semester to see if any cheating was
missed. Is your cheating policy set by your school's administration
or by your department head or are you allowed to have your own policy?
I was also wondering, if your policy is set by your administration,
how does this affect how you teach and what kind of evaluations you
give? I'm still trying to develop my own philosophy on the matter, so
any input would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you.
