Department Services

Law Enforcement and Security


We provide UWM campus patrol and safety, facility security, and personal safety escorts and advice. Conduct on University Lands is governed under UWS Chapter 18. To learn more about UWS Chapter 18 navigate to our Off Campus Resources.

Investigative Services


Our team of investigators are well trained and equipped to provide a thorough review and examination for a broad spectrum of situations or events.  Some of this training is through our collaborative relationship with the Milwaukee Police Department.  Investigative services offer a whole host of responses to include, but not limited to: financial crimes, sensitive crimes, general crimes and cold case review. The investigative services team provide coverage for the University 24 hours per day throughout the calendar year.

So, what does all of this information mean to you? As your Police Department, we strive to create a safe and secure environment in which you can learn, live, and work. We do this by working as a TEAM in the department and partnering with the campus community. We operate under the motto, “Building Relationships ~ Protecting Community.” The underlying idea is that everyone shares in the responsibility to keep UW-Milwaukee safe. We will work with you to help make that a reality. We encourage everyone to take a more in-depth look by going to our TEAM Policing page.
