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. The commissioned police department includes over 60 trained professionals and sworn officers who ensure the safety and security of campus and the surrounding neighborhood 24 hours a day, 365 days a year.
To receive MUPD safety alerts and weather-related closing information, enroll in the university's emergency text messaging system. Go to CheckMarq. Go to "Profile" and select "Contact Details." Scroll down to "Phone" and enter your mobile number. Make sure it's labeled "mobile," not "home."
Currently the text alert system serves students, faculty and staff. Parents can download the EagleEye app to receive safety alerts (the same information as the text alerts) as long as their push notification settings are turned on. All safety alerts are also shared via the MUPD Twitter account.
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 going to MyJob to add or update your mobile phone number for text alerts.
