UW–Madison actively strives to create a safe campus and community for its students. UW–Madison maintains a website dedicated to campus safety on which you can access safety-related phone numbers, campus safety news and updates, and more. Students can also sign up for WiscAlerts, UW–Madison's emergency notification system, through the MY UW Portal; this program sends alerts via e-mail, text messages, voicemail, and land telephone lines. And the UW Police Department provides complete law enforcement on campus.


BADGEr Beat is a monthly newsletter published by the UW Police Department (UWPD) as an outreach effort to inform the campus community and promote cooperative relationships between UWPD and members of the campus community.
