Authority of Public Safety and Relationship with Law Enforcement Agencies 

MCW – Milwaukee 

The MCW - Milwaukee campus is under the jurisdiction of both Public Safety and the Milwaukee County Sheriff’s Office (MCSO). MCSO possesses law enforcement jurisdiction over all MRMC grounds, including MCW property. A MCSO sub-station is located near the MRMC grounds at 10190 Watertown Plank Road.

Public Safety personnel have the authority to enforce MCW policy and rules, but are not certified law enforcement officers, and therefore do not have the power of arrest. MCSO has full law enforcement authority, including the powers to arrest and detain. 

Public Safety collaborates with law enforcement organizations on matters concerning MCW and is the designated lead agency on all internal security and public safety matters. Reports requiring law enforcement response are promptly forwarded to the appropriate law enforcement agency. There is no written memorandum of understanding between MCW and MCSO addressing the investigation of criminal incidents or any other matters. 

MCW – Green Bay 

The MCW – Green Bay campus is under the jurisdiction of MCW Public Safety, St. Norbert College Campus Safety and the De Pere Police Department.  

St. Norbert College Campus Safety staff have the authority to enforce campus rules and regulations, but are not certified law enforcement officers, and therefore do not have the power of arrest. A memorandum of understanding designates the De Pere Police Department as the law enforcement agency responsible for the response to, and investigation of, criminal activity on the St. Norbert College campus. Reports requiring law enforcement response are promptly forwarded to the appropriate law enforcement agency.
