University Police serve a busy and vibrant campus, 24 hours a day seven days a week. Emergencies happen without warning so take a few moments to be prepared while knowing you can count on a prompt and professional response from our certified police officers and dispatch staff.  Located at 605 17th St. North, our new state of the art facility gives us access to all we need to respond efficiently.

Often it is not emergencies that bring us together but rather problems, incidents or issues which affect our quality of life on campus.  Our staff shares a great sense of community and strives hard to work in partnership to resolve these matters.  Further, we provide services and programming to make our University a better place.  Please explore the website and learn more about Emergency Preparedness, UWL Alert, Crime Prevention, Alcohol, Marijuana, and Traffic Diversion programs, and many other programs.  Feedback and involvement from outside the department is encouraged and helps us improve our performance and provides transparency essential in today's policing.
