Officer On Duty 24 Hours A Day
For emergencies, dial 9-1-1.
All 911 calls are dispatched through the Platteville Police Department or the Grant County Sheriff’s Department. The University Police are dispatched to all 911 calls originating on campus property.
For after-hours non-emergency calls, contact:
University Police Office
Platteville Police Dispatch
Safe Walk escorts are provided 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
When available, University Resource Officers provide the Safe Walk service to students and staff. When a University Resource Officer is unavailable, University Police Officers will provide the escort, if at all possible. Persons requesting a Safe Walk escort may have to wait for a period of time, if there is no URO on duty and the on-duty officer is busy.
To request a Safe Walk escort, call the University Police at 608.342.1584. After normal business hours, call the Platteville Police Department at 608.348.2313 or the University Police Department at 608.342.1584 (select option 2 from voicemail prompts) and tell the dispatcher you are requesting a Safe Walk escort. University Police Personnel (URO or Officer) will meet you at your location and walk with you to your destination. The starting and ending locations of the escort must be on or within 2 blocks of the UW-Platteville campus.
