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 College controlled off-site facilities (i.e. administrative offices, medical clinics, and research centers). 

Public Safety Officers regularly patrol College owned and/or leased properties, including interior and exterior areas of the campus, 4th and 5th floors of the Froedtert Specialty Clinics (Medical Office Building), core campus parking facilities, and adjacent public areas.  Off-campus response by PS is provided on a case-by-case basis.  In all situations, Public Safety collaborates with local authorities to ensure the safety and security of MCW affiliated personnel.  

Public Safety strives to develop and maintain collaborative partnerships with all 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.
