Confession Time! It doesn't matter how many patrols we've conducted, nobody is ever really prepared to see President Werwath lurking in the Library.

Imagine being one of our third shift Officers!

The Public Safety Department, and President Werwath, hope you're all having a safe and enjoyable summer. Remember, we're still here on campus, 24/7, in case you need us.

Just dial 414-277-7159 for emergency, 414-277-7169 for non-emergency, OR be like the cool kids and reach out to us through RAVE Guardian. ๐Ÿ˜Ž

On Thursday, June 17, 2021 at 3:09 PM, an MSOE staff member reported to Public Safety that her 2020 Hyundai Elentra was missing from the State Street B Parking Lot.

Patrol Officers responded and found evidence suggesting that the vehicle had been broken into and stolen. The Milwaukee Police Department was notified and came out to assist.

A review of the camera footage shows a vehicle occupied by several unknown individuals enters the parking lot at 2:12 PM. By 2:13 PM, one of the unknown individuals had already made his way into the staff member's vehicle and has left the lot.

Unfortunately, the rash of vehicle thefts, specifically for current model Kias and Hyundais has been plaguing the city of the Milwaukee for months. Approximately 2,800 have been stolen since the beginning of the year.

The Milwaukee Police Department, and the MSOE Public Safety Department, strongly encourage current model Kia and Hyundai owners to purchase steering wheel locks as soon as possible. These locks can be purchased for as low as $20 from some retailers. The Milwaukee Police Department was providing free steering wheel locks, but have apparently run out of stock.

On Friday, June 11th, Public Safety, Marketing, and several MSOE students got together and took some photos for some upcoming campus literature. It was a blast! The weather was beautiful, we got to spend time with a few students that are close friends of the Department, and we got to meet several new (to us) students.

Here are just a few photos we took that day!

On Thursday, April 15, 2021 at 6:36 PM, students working in SG-63, located in the basement of the Science Building, reported to Public Safety that it appeared smoke was coming somewhere from the area. Patrol Officers responded and found a fire extinguisher had been partially discharged in the hallway.

Neither responding Officers or the building's fire detection system could find evidence of a fire.

Camera footage was reviewed in an attempt to discover why the extinguisher was used. At 6:06 PM, three teens can be seen heading southbound through the Werwath Mall, at the same time an MSOE student exits the south Jefferson door.

Suspect #1 (B/M, 15-20 years old, thin build, blue hoodie, black athletic pants, black Nike shoes and a large watch) runs back to the Jefferson door and catches it before it can close. Suspect #2 (B/M, 15-20 years old, thin build, black hoodie, red jacket, and black jeans) and Suspect #3 (B/M, 15-20 years old, thin build, black hoodie, black jacket, black and white athletic pants, and short dreadlocks) enter the building and go to the Lee Lounge.

Once in the Lee Lounge Suspect #1 heads to the south stairwell and Suspect #2 heads to the Kilbourn doors. Both suspects act as lookouts while Suspect #3 attempts to gain access to several offices in the Lee Lounge.

All three suspects take the stairs to the second floor. The three suspects spread out and check several offices/classrooms. At one point they are confronted by a staff member, and all three suspects run down the stairwell to the Lee Lounge. At the point the suspects sneak through the building (suspect #1 signals his partners to 'hush' at one point as they near a hallway).

At 6:19 PM, the suspects can be seen in the north Jefferson stairwell making their way to the SG-63 area. At 6:20 PM the suspects race back up the stairs, exit the building, and enter the Library Building (with the help of an MSOE student) and enter L-100 and L-104. A staff member enters L-100 at approximately 6:30 PM, causing the suspects to run out an emergency exit and leave campus. They are last seen heading southbound on Jefferson Street.

It does not appear that anything was stolen. Prior to the suspects' arrival, Public Safety had secured the exteriors of both buildings, as well as any room not scheduled for use. It is imperative that students do not leave their personal effects (ie laptops, backpacks, purses, etc) unattended while on campus. MSOE is a safe campus, but that does not mean that we are immune to crime. Students' property has been stolen in the past during situations like this.

If you see anything suspicious on campus, please contact Public Safety at 414-277-7159 (emergency number) or 414-277-7169 (non-emergency). You can also text us and share videos/pictures with the RAVE Guardian app.

On Thursday, April 8, 2021 at 2:35 AM, Public Safety was advised of two men that had climbed the fence surrounding the Viets Memorial Tower, and were inside the construction site. Patrol Officers responded, covered the exits, and called out for the intruders to give themselves up.

Both subjects attempted to hide inside the unfinished Viets Memorial Tower but were spotted. Ultimately both individuals chose to surrender themselves to Public Safety. They were detained, and held for the Milwaukee Police Department. Both subjects were cited for trespassing and were released.

Patrol Officers searched the construction site and were unable to find signs of theft, damage, or vandalism. The most important thing is that neither individual was harmed while inside the site.

The Public Safety Department would like to thank Sgt. Thomas Harris, Sgt. Russell Bozicevich, PO Hector Rodriguez, CO Jennifer Wagner, RHO Carmelita Walker and the Milwaukee Police Department for their swift response. We would also like to thank the MSOE students that witnessed the intruders and informed us.

Update: On Monday, April 5, 2021 at 7:45 PM, a Patrol Officer noticed our subject back on campus. She had approached an MSOE student and requested access into the Science Building, which Public Safety had locked two hours prior.

Our Communication Officer was able to follow her through the building, via CCTV cameras, and notify Patrol Officers of her location. The subject was then detained without incident, and then handed over to the Milwaukee Police Department for trespassing.

We'd like to thank Patrol Officers Sarah Konieczny and Joshua Selenky, as well as Communication Officer Zack Sauve, and the Milwaukee Police Department for doing their swift and professional response to this situation.

We'd also like to take a moment to remind the MSOE Community of several points. #1. Please do not grant access to buildings, to non-MSOE affiliates. Campus buildings are locked in the evenings to prevent intruders from making their way inside. #2. Be mindful of your surroundings. On several occasions, she simply waited near entrances and followed students into buildings. #3. Please keep a close eye on your property. It's not uncommon for intruders to make their way into MSOE buildings (usually by following students) and steal laptops, purses, and other property left unattended.

Remember, if you see something suspicious on campus, feel free to contact Public Safety at 414-277-7169, or send us a message via the RAVE Guardian app. Public Safety will come out to investigate immediately.

Good afternoon,

Please see the attached photo. This is "Ms. Johnson", a homeless women that frequents the area surrounding the Science and Library buildings. Mrs. Johnson has been observed, and confronted, by Public Safety numerous times and escorted off property. Each time Mrs. Johnson has been seen wearing black leggings, light colored slippers, and a black and white sweater.

If you see Mrs. Johnson in an MSOE building, especially the Library and Science buildings, please contact Public Safety immediately. You may call us at 414-277-7159, or send us a message via the RAVE Guardian app.

Based on our research we've determined that Mrs. Johnson gains access to campus buildings by lingering near entrances and then entering when students exit/enter the building.

If you have any questions, please feel free to reach out to us.
