UW-Whitewater Police Department Information


University Police Officers are committed to providing a professional and full service police department to the University. Officers must complete 720 hours of preparatory law enforcement officer training by a state certified technical college. Officers alsoenter into a three month Police Officer Training Program with UW- Whitewater Police Department. This program provides further training specific to campus law enforcement. Upon completion of this process officers are assigned to a patrol shift. University Police Officers maintain a high level of visibility on campus, which helps create a strong connection with the community. Our officers patrol campus 24 hours a day on foot, in cars, and on bicycles. The University officers work collaboratively with WhitewaterPolice to prevent and solve problems in the areas around campus.

For EMERGENCIES on campus immediately dial 911 from any campus phone or use any of the 20 Blue Light emergency phones located across campus.
