University Police

Providing safety for campus

University Police are committed to providing quality law enforcement services to Blugolds, faculty, staff and visitors. Our university is proud of the police department's long-standing tradition of working in partnership with our campus and surrounding community and by joining together with federal, state, county and local law enforcement agencies to address the challenges we face. Our police officers actively patrol in marked vehicles, on bicycles, and on foot to ensure the university community is protected around the clock.

Mission Statement

We will provide and maintain a level of excellence in law enforcement through training, education and ethical discipline. We strive to provide a friendly atmosphere in which all individuals on campus can feel safe and secure.

Department Profile

Campus police officers have completed law enforcement-related degrees, and are state certified by the Wisconsin Department of Justice, Training & Standards Bureau. Our staff consists of a Chief of Police, lieutenant, two sergeants, detective, and six full time officers. We supplement our work force by employing student during the school year for clerical assistance and student patrol duties.

Officers provide a variety of educational and preventative services to Blugolds, faculty, staff and visitors. These include Emergency Management Planning, safety presentations, civilian response to active shooters, and physical security assessments.

Student Patrol

The University Police offers educational opportunities to Blugolds through the Student Patrol program. The student employment provides Blugolds the opportunity to work within a police department to gain experience that will help them in achieving their academic and career goals.
