If you or anyone else is in immediate danger call 911

or the University Police at (414) 229-9911

After a sexual assault, dating violence, domestic violence, or stalking incident, you may choose to file a police report. If you want to make a criminal complaint, you must file a police report. Making a complaint with the Title IX Coordinator does not begin a police investigation. However, the UWM Police will notify the University of any police complaints about sexual violence from UWM students.

If you are the victim of a crime, you may come in contact with the criminal justice system. As this process begins, you are entitled to certain rights under Wisconsin Statutes and the Wisconsin Constitution.

Victims of violent crime may have significant out-of-pocket expenses through no fault of their own. The Wisconsin Department of Justice’s Crime Victim Compensation Program helps pay for unreimbursed eligible expenses that result from the crime.
