Department Policies 

UW-Whitewater Police Department is committed to being as transparent as possible with the community that we serve. To show that commitment, we have made almost all of our policies public. A limited amount of our policies have been withheld for tactical, officer safety, and other security concerns. 

Withheld policies can be requested via an open records request, but contents will be redacted as needed to ensure the safety of our officers and the campus community.
