Overview of Public Safety

MCW Public Safety provides a variety of public safety programs and services to members of the campus community. These activities often extend beyond campus to include those constituents whose education and work place them in MCW controlled off-site facilities (i.e. administrative offices, medical clinics, and research centers).

Public Safety has developed and maintains collaborative partnerships with area law enforcement agencies including the City of Wauwatosa Police Department (WPD), the Milwaukee County Sheriff’s Office (MCSO), and the various local field offices of state and federal law enforcement agencies.

Public Safety is fully committed to ensuring a safe and secure campus environment. For comments, questions, and/or suggestions regarding programs or services, visit the Public Safety Center, located near the lobby of the Health Research Center, room H1820, or contact the Public Safety Central Administration Office at (414) 955-8424. Students and employees may also wish to visit the PS Intranet site, which includes more detailed information.  Similar information can be viewed on MCW’s public website.
