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 (a URO or an 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.
