Public Records Request

Under Wisconsin Public Records Law, records generated by the UW-Whitewater Police Department may be subject to release. The department processes and releases all records in a reasonable and timely manner, in compliance with the State of Wisconsin’s public records laws.

Records may be obtained the following ways:

  • In person at UW-Whitewater University Police main headquarters (Goodhue Hall)

  • Called in to the non-emergency line 262-472-4660

To request an accident report, please visit the Wisconsin Crash Reports website.  

UW-Whitewater Police Department may bill requesters $0.25 for each physical copy made, but will not charge reproduction costs for electronic copies of records that exist in electronic format.  A location fee may be charged if the cost to locate the record(s) in question is $50.00 or more.  Location fees will be calculated at the hourly salary and benefit rate for the lowest-paid employee capable of performing the task.  No fee will be charged for the cost of reviewing records for possible redaction or removal of confidential information.  Requests which exceed a total cost of $5.00 may require prepayment.  All associated costs may be paid via check, money order, or cash. Payment is required before records are released to you.
