Workplace violence has emerged as an important safety and health issue in today's workplace. Its most extreme form, homicide, is the third-leading cause of fatal occupational injury in the United States.
UWM is committed to providing a safe and healthy place for our faculty, staff and students to work and learn. A person who believes that he or she has been the target of workplace violence should report it to the University Police and/or to his or her supervisor, manager or an appropriate administrator.
The non-emergency number for the University Police is x4627. If you believe you are in imminent danger, please contact the University Police by calling x9-911 from a campus phone or 229-9911 from a cellphone.
