UWM offers safety tips as weather warms up

As the weather warms up, UWM offers these campus safety tips for faculty and staff. Employees are encouraged to be aware of their surroundings and report suspicious behavior to police. The UWM Police non-emergency line, 414-229-4627, is answered 24 hours a day. 

The campus community is also urged to take these precautions to reduce the chances of being the victim of a robbery or assault: 

  • Walk in pairs or groups, if possible. 
  • Don’t wear headphones while walking, and be aware of the noises around you. 
  • Don’t walk while using your phone, which is a distraction that can cause you to be an easy target. 
  • Always lock your vehicle, and keep valuables out of sight. 
  • Download the Rave Guardian App to receive UWM Emergency Alerts and access other safety features. Employees are automatically signed up for safety alerts via their UWM emails. In addition, they may opt in to receive text safety alerts.
  • Individuals who aren’t affiliated with UWM also can receive emergency alerts via text from UWM. Text uwmalerts to 226787.
  • If you are the victim of a robbery, offer unconditional surrender. Valuables are replaceable, you are not.
