Active and mass shootings are unfortunately increasing across the country. As a result, instructor-focused classroom and campus safety training based around an active shooter scenario is available during the summer semester and offered by UWMPD. This training will help ensure that we are prepared to respond to situations that could cause students to feel unsafe. To date, more than 1000 faculty, instructional staff, and support staff have received this training. If you have not attended a training, please consider making this a priority.

There are three in-person sessions and one virtual session offered between June and August 2022. Presented by the UWM Police Department, this training has been well received by past participants and inspired productive conversation on a difficult topic.

The training lasts approximately an hour and a half. To view the dates/times and register for the training, please visit: http://uwm.edu/safetytraining.

Thank you for participating in this important and essential campus training program.
