The Marquette University Police Department issues safety alerts through text messages
and emails to Marquette students. Text messages, which are sent as soon as possible
after an incident, provide information about the location and nature of the incident.
The university’s policy is to issue a safety alert text message when there is an ongoing
threat to campus. Emails include additional information, including suspect and vehicle
descriptions, if available. The alerts are for students in the immediate area so they
know to avoid a certain area and/or watch for suspects who match the description.
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 Marquette University Police Department 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.
