On behalf of the members of the UW-Green Bay Police Department, I would like to take a moment to share a little about our department. I encourage you to look through our website and learn about our mission, our officers, and about the many services that we provide to the UW-Green Bay community.  Here you will find important information about campus safety, crime prevention, crime statistics, criminal alerts, and programs offered by our department.

The responsibility for the overall safety and law enforcement services for the University rests with the UW-Green Bay Police Department. The men and women of the University Police continually strive to provide an environment where all members of the community can safely learn, work, live and visit. Our efforts are greatly enhanced when members of the campus community take an active role in personal safety and crime prevention. Please encourage your students to report any suspicious activity or crimes to the University Police at 465-2300 (non-emergency) or 911 (emergency).

Our full service police department serves the campus community 24 hours per day, 7 days per week. In addition to patrol operations and emergency response, our officers interact with the students on a regular basis. Our department offers multiple free training courses (Self Defense, Active Shooter training, AED, etc.) as well as many community policing activities (coffee with a cop, bowling with a cop, group presentation, etc.).  I encourage your student to take part in these programs.

The campus will communicate emergency messages to students in a number of ways (e mails, Public Address systems, electronic notification, etc.). Our most effective way of communicating to students is through an emergency text program called GB Alert. Your students can sign up to receive these emergency text messages free of charge at:

If you or your student have additional questions about our department please feel free to e mail us at or call us at (920) 465-2300.
