Safety and Security

Public Safety

The Office of Student Life works closely with Public Safety and the Office of Residence Life to ensure a safe and secure campus environment. This office is responsible for collecting and preparing security related reports and incidents to the Federal Government.

Emergency Phone Numbers

IN THE EVENT OF AN EMERGENCY, or should criminal activity take place on the Wisconsin Lutheran College campus, take the following steps to ensure a prompt and adequate response: 

  • CALL 911. Confirm 8800 West Bluemound Road, Milwaukee, as the correct address to the 911 operator, but also give directions to your specific campus location.
  • CALL Public Safety at 414.443.8500 or contact them in person in the Office of Public Safety/Office of Facilities Management, located in the lower level (P) of the Recreation Complex. 
  • After calling 911 and Public Safety, please contact the Front Desk at 414.443.8800 to make them aware of the situation, so they can direct emergency personnel if needed. 

In the event that a situation arises, either on or off campus, that, in the judgment of the Crisis Management Team constitutes an ongoing or continuing threat, the Warrior Alert Emergency Notification System (ENS) will be employed to deliver the “timely warning” to students, faculty, and staff.
