Service and Prevention
With a combined philosophy of service and prevention, the Marquette University Police
Department is dedicated to maintaining a safe environment conducive to learning, living
and working at Marquette. More than 80 trained professionals and sworn officers ensure
the safety and security of campus and the surrounding neighborhood 24 hours a day,
365 days a year.
To receive MUPD safety alerts, as well as weather-related closing information, enroll
in the university's emergency text messaging system by entering your cell phone number
in the "Personal Information" section of CheckMarq.
Safety alerts are posted to the MUPD's Twitter account. The program Marquette uses to send safety alert texts to students does not allow
parents to sign up to receive alerts directly.
For Faculty and Staff
Those with university-owned cell phones will automatically receive text alerts. Faculty
and staff without university phones can opt in to receiving text alerts from the university
by registering their personal phone number in the "Personal Information" section of MyJob.
