Madison College Public Safety Services is a 24 hours-a-day, seven days-a-week service. The Public Safety Central Command Center is in room B1240 on the Truax campus.
The department consists of full-time, casual and student help officers, as well as security technicians and clerical support.
Public Safety Services works closely with the City of Madison Police Department and other local jurisdictions to enforce federal, state and municipal laws and the Madison College Student Code of Conduct. This is done by routine patrols of both the interior and exterior of all Madison College-owned and leased buildings by uniformed patrol officers via foot, bicycle and marked squad cars.
The Public Safety Department uses the Wisconsin State Capitol Police Department to provide dispatch services for the department. The hours for this service are Monday through Friday from 10 p.m. to 6 a.m. and 24 hours on Saturdays, Sundays and holidays. Please keep in mind that if you are contacting Public Safety during those hours, the State Capitol Police will answer. Please do not hang up; you are calling the correct number. This partnership benefits the Madison College community and provides a direct link for the officers while increasing the level of officer safety. We work closely with the Wisconsin State Capitol Police and have partnered to ensure we continue to provide a safe and welcoming community. We appreciate this partnership.

Duties of Public Safety Officers include:
- Routine patrols of all campus-owned and leased facilities

- Eviction of non-affiliated persons

Public Safety has a bike patrol unit that operates during the warmer months. This type of patrol allows for Public Safety Officers to be more visible and interact more with the Madison College community. An officer can move quickly through a crowd while on a bike and can find shortcuts, if necessary. This mobility also adds a "stealth" advantage to bike patrols when compared to patrol vehicles. An officer on a bike is much smaller, quieter and can go places that are not easily accessible to patrol vehicles. Also, a person fleeing from an officer generally can't outrun an officer on a bike.
Crime Prevention Team
The Madison College Crime Prevention Team was created in 2009 and proactively provides the Madison College community with the best crime prevention initiatives possible. The Crime Prevention Team constantly strives to find ways to keep all members of the Madison College community informed and protected from crimes of opportunity. In addition to these initiatives, they also publish a bi-weekly article in the student newspaper, The Clarion, to keep students and staff informed about what Public Safety is responding to, as well as tips and updates regarding safety on campus.
If you have any safety concerns or information regarding crimes or suspicious activity on campus, contact the Public Safety Department at (608) 245-2222. We have uniformed Public Safety officers actively patrolling 24/7.
For general questions or concerns regarding the Crime Prevention Team, contact Crime Prevention Team Leader Sgt. Steffen at (608) 243-4441.

The Clery Act is a federal law enacted in 1990 and officially known as the Jeanne Clery Disclosure of Campus Security Policy and Campus Crime Statistics Act, which requires institutions of higher education participating in federal financial aid programs to keep and disclose information about crime on and near their respective campuses.
Public Safety, Human Resources, and the Dean of Students Office work together to ensure Madison College complies with this law by providing the campus community with timely, complete, and accurate collection of crime data along with security and safety policies. These statistics and policies are published and distributed to the public every year in the Madison College Annual Security Report.
Annual Security and Fire Safety Report
Madison College’s Annual Security Report is published by October 1 each year. Crime statistics are compiled for the Annual Security Report (ASR) in accordance with the Clery Act and include crime information reported to Public Safety and other identified authorities. The statistics identify crimes reported for the past three years occurring within the specific geographic area for which Madison College is responsible.
The Clery Act requires Madison College to disclose information about specific crimes occurring within the Clery geography. There are four categories of crimes disclosed under the Clery Act.
1) Criminal Offenses- Murder/non negligent manslaughter, negligent manslaughter, rape, fondling, statutory rape, incest, robbery, aggravated assault, burglary, motor vehicle theft and arson.
2) Hate/Bias Related Crimes-Larceny, vandalism, intimidation and simple assault
3) Violence Against Women Act (VAWA) Crimes-Dating violence, domestic violence and stalking
4) Arrests and Referrals for liquor, drug, and weapons law violations
The Clery geography defines the specific geographic area for which Madison College has responsibility to disclose crime statistics. The Clery geographic locations are determined based on the following definitions:
On Campus: “Any building or property owned or controlled by an institution within the same reasonably contiguous geographic area and used by the institution in direct support of, or in a manner related to, the institution’s educational purposes, including residence halls. Also, any building or property that is within or reasonably contiguous to the area identified in the first part of this definition that is owned by the institution but controlled by another person, is frequently used by students, and supports institutional purposes.”
On Campus- Residential: “Any student housing facility that is owned or controlled by the institution, or is located on property that is owned or controlled by the institution, and is within the reasonably contiguous geographic area that makes up the campus is considered an on-campus student housing facility.” Madison College does not currently own or control any On Campus-Residential facilities.
Non-Campus Property: “Any building or property owned or controlled by a student organization that is officially recognized by the institution; or Any building or property owned or controlled by an institution that is used in direct support of, or in relation to, the institution’s educational purposes, is frequently used by students, and is not within the same reasonably contiguous geographic area of the institution.”

The following locations are included within the Madison College geography: Commercial Avenue Campus, Fort Atkinson Campus, Portage Campus, Public Safety Training Facility, Reedsburg Campus, Goodman South Campus, Truax Campus, Watertown Campus, and the West Campus.
Daily Crime Log
The Clery Act requires institutions with campus police or security departments to maintain a daily Crime Log of all crimes reported to them, or those of which they are made aware of. The Crime Log includes crimes which occurred within the last 60 days.
Timely Warning Notice
The Clery Act requires Madison College issue Timely Warning Notices to the campus community for reported Clery Act crimes, occurring on or near campus that present an ongoing threat to the safety of the campus community. Timely Warning Notices are issued by the Director of Public Safety and will typically include a brief description of the incident, date or timeframe of incident, suspect description, and helpful information to prevent the occurrences of similar crimes.
A Timely Warning Notice is generally disseminated through a WolfPack Alert, student/employee email, press release, or a post on the Madison College website.
The Clery Act requires Madison College immediately notify the campus community of incidents that pose an imminent threat to the health and safety of the campus community. Madison College fulfills this requirement by sending out WolfPack Alerts WolfPack Alerts provide a brief description of the incident and steps to take to help ensure safety.
Campus Security Authorities (CSAs)
The Clery Act recognizes certain officials and offices as Campus Security Authorities (CSA). The Clery Act defines these individuals as “officials of an institution who have significant responsibility for student and campus activities, including, but not limited to, student housing, student discipline, campus judicial proceedings, health services, Title IX and athletics.
While Madison College encourages all members of the college community to report crimes, CSAs are identified employees with responsibility to report Clery crimes to Madison College Public Safety. This responsibility is required by the Clery Act and is determined based on the employee’s role at the college. Reports filed with CSAs are counted and disclosed in the Annual Security Report.
