      Complaint Procedure

      It is the policy of the University of Wisconsin - Whitewater Police Department to investigate all allegations and complaints of misconduct against any member of the department. Proper adherence to the provisions of this policy will exonerate the innocent and facilitate prompt and equitable corrective action when necessary.  To make a complaint against a University Police Department employee, notification can be made to a department supervisor as follows:

      • Come in person to the department's offices, located in Goodhue Hall, during business hours (Monday - Friday, 8:30am - 4:30pm)
