The beginning of the school year is always an exciting and busy time. A lot of information gets thrown at you in a brief period, and frankly it's easy for some things to be forgotten. Below are a few of the most frequently asked questions for the Public Safety Department.

Q: I pay for the student parking permit. Why am I not allowed to park on any of the campus lots?

A: Excluding the Water Street lot, there are 400 parking spaces on the surface lots. As of this writing the Public Safety Department has issued 719 student parking permits. As you can see the surface lots can not possible hold that volume of vehicles. Viets Field and the Water Street lot can. In addition, there are approximately 340 MSOE employees that park on campus, leaving us with sixty open spaces. These spaces are needed for guest speakers, SAS parkers, contractors, etc. Please note, that 7AM-4PM, Monday-Friday are the busiest times on campus. Students MAY park on the campus lots outside of that time frame.

Q: I lost something important. Is there is a lost and found?

A: There is a lost and found on campus. Come to the Public Safety Command Center, in the lobby of MLH, located at 324 East Juneau Avenue. We are open 24/7 so come at your convenience. Please note that we only hold property for forty-five days. After that we dispose of or donate items to nearby shelters.

Q: Is it alright if I provide you with my parent’s phone number instead of mine?

A: We would rather you did not. As adults and MSOE students if the Public Safety Department needs to contact you it would be best to do so directly. For instance, if we needed to speak to you regarding your vehicle, or your item turned into lost and found, or something for safety sake, it’s important that we speak to you as soon as possible. Providing your parents number in lieu of yours just lengthens the process.

Q: Is it legal to carry pepper spray?

A: Absolutely. You may possess the key chain sized cannisters of pepper spray. They are cheap enough, cost about $10, and can be found in most stores. Please do not rely solely on pepper spray though. Please utilize the campus SHIP and Shuttle to safely transport you. If you need transportation and neither of those services are operating, please contact Public Safety and a Patrol Officer may transport you a reasonable distance.

Q: Why do I need to show my ID every time I enter my dorm?

A: Access to MLH and Regents is restricted only to residents. All residents receive a sticker to put on their ID that display their status as a resident. It is the job of the Officer in either building to ensure that only residents are making it through the front door. This is not only for your safety and security, but to combat the spread of Covid-19. Some students swipe their ID at the scanner, which is not only a good practice, but sometimes the way to unlock the door. The Officer needs still needs to see your ID. It’s not unusual for a non-resident to come into possession of a resident’s ID to gain access to the building.

Do you have a question? Feel free to ask a Public Safety Officer, or post your question here and I'll answer it.

Good afternoon,

At 11:17 AM an individual approached the bike racks in the Milwaukee C lot, located behind MLH. The suspect approached the rack, produced a bolt cutters, and stole a student's bike within a matter of seconds. We're reached out to the Milwaukee Police Department and provided them with all of the information we have.

MPD informed us that there have been a high number of bike thefts in the downtown area.

If you are the owner of a bike in the Milwaukee C lot, and you discover a new lock on your bike, do not be alarmed. To prevent further thefts the MSOE Public Safety Department inspected all of the bikes secured in the Milwaukee C lot. Any bike secured via cable or chain has been re-secured with a thick U-Bolt lock. This lock belongs to you now, free of charge. Please speak to the Communication Officer inside MLH to get the keys for your new lock.

Please remember that there is a free and secure bicycle storage cage on the Market level of Viet's Field. If you wish to park your bike in the cage, please register with the Communication Officer in MLH.

Attached is a message from MSOE Public Safety Director, Billy Fyfe, regarding an attempted armed robbery that occurred on campus yesterday morning. I have attached the only photo we have of our suspect.

-PO #785

"Good afternoon,

I hope this message finds you well.

The MSOE Public Safety Department and the Milwaukee Police Department are investigating an attempted armed robbery that took place on Monday, September 7, 2020, at 10:52 p.m. on the southwest corner of North Broadway and East Juneau Avenue. The suspect in this incident is described as a white male, 25-30 years of age, wearing all black clothing, with a missing tooth. The suspect displayed a 3-inch knife and demanded personal property from the victim. The suspect fled southbound on North Broadway from East Juneau Avenue before obtaining any property. Nobody was injured during this incident.

The MSOE Public Safety Department and the Dean of Students Office would like to remind all MSOE students, faculty, staff, guests, and visitors to:

Always travel in pairs or groups, being aware of your surroundings at all times.
Use the campus shuttle service when on campus by calling (414) 277-7464.
If you observe any suspicious behavior or fear for your safety at any time, contact the MSOE Public Safety Department at (414) 277-7159 or by using one of the blue light emergency phones throughout campus.
Enter the MSOE Public Safety Department’s telephone number in your phone, so it’s available at all times.
Download the Rave Guardian app.
Be aware of places along your walking route that could easily conceal a criminal (building, shrubbery, etc.). Avoid or keep a distance from these areas whenever possible.
Document any suspicious vehicles, especially those that appear to be circling the block or driving unusually slow. If you observe a suspicious vehicle, contact the MSOE Public Safety Department, and report the suspicious vehicle.

If you have any questions, please feel free to contact me.

Thank you,

Billy Fyfe"

If you're in possession of a blue cart, please return it to the lobby of the Grohmann Tower.

- PO #785

Have you seen me?

These helpful blue carts love to spend time with our residents... whether it's moving furniture, carrying clothes, hauling groceries, or bringing home snacks. Sometimes we even find these carts relaxing in apartments when not in use - but we all know there's a better place for them to be.

There are normally approximately 30 carts available to assist Tower residents... but currently we do not have any waiting in our lobby for the next resident to use.

So do us and our carts a favor - if you have one that has been hanging out in your apartment that you are not actively using to load and unload items throughout the building, please return it to the Tower lobby so it can assist someone else.

Thanks,

Grohmann Tower Staff

*Update* On Thursday, January 23, 2020 the Public Safety Department made contact with the individual responsible for slashing the tires of several MSOE students, and non-MSOE related neighbors. The individual in question has admitted to what he has done, and this case is now closed!

The Public Safety Department would like to extend a heartfelt thank you to each and every one of you that shared our post, contacted us with tips via Omnigo Community, spoke with our Officers, and created dialogue among yourselves. It is possible that we might not have caught this individual had it not been for your assistance.

The Public Safety Department is currently reaching out to the victims to provide them with the necessary information.

Good morning,

The Public Safety Department was made aware of several vehicles that had their tires slashed over the weekend. During the course of our investigation it was determined that three MSOE students had their tires slashed while parked on campus, and three non-MSOE students had their tires slashed while parked on the city streets.

The suspect appears to be a white male, average build, approximately twenty years old, and approximately 6' tall. The suspect was wearing dark pants and shoes, as well as an MSOE hooded hockey jacket. We have reached out to the Athletics Department regarding the suspect. It has been brought to our attention that the suspect's jacket is one issued to MSOE hockey players. This particular jacket is an older model with a hockey player inside the MSOE block logo. Athletics stopped issuing this jacket to players two years ago when the logo was changed.

On Sunday, January 12, 2020 at approximately 11:04 PM, the suspect is seen leaving one of the bars on Water Street. He begins to head east on Juneau Avenue and stops across the street from the Grohmann Tower to check his phone for several minutes. After that, the suspect entered the Water Street parking lot and slashed the tires of three vehicles (two MSOE students, one non-student) rather quickly. It appears that the suspect chose all three vehicles at random.

From that point the suspect heads east on Knapp Street and cuts through the Knapp Street parking lot to the Juneau Avenue parking lot. The suspect then slashed the tires of the final MSOE student.

Prior to walking off campus and damaging two more vehicles, the suspect attempted to gain access to Rosenberg Hall. The building was locked at the time. Like most MSOE students the suspect places his wallet to the proximity scanner to unlock the door. Officers searched the card access history and determined that the suspect must not have had his ID on him because nothing registered with the scanner.

If you have any information regarding our suspect, please contact Public Safety immediately. You may either call us at 414-277-7169, speak with an Officer on campus, or you may file a report anonymously using the Omnigo community app. Again, we are looking for a white male, approximately 6', average build, in possession of an old MSOE hockey jacket. The suspect is believed to be either a Junior, Senior, or a recent graduate. If you have any questions, comments, or concerns, please reach out to Public Safety.

If you could, please share this post.

Good afternoon,



I hope this message finds you well.



I am writing to inform you of an incident that occurred this past weekend. On Saturday night, the MSOE Public Safety Department received an anonymous tip that a former student brought a firearm into one of our residence halls while visiting a friend. Public Safety Officers and the Milwaukee Police Department responded immediately. The Milwaukee Police Department took the guest into custody for violating MSOE’s campus ban on weapons.



This incident is a good reminder of how we all play a key role in keeping our community safe and also highlights that our processes and protocols designed to keep the community safe are effective and actively monitored. In that spirit, please make sure you are familiar with the Omnigo software which enables easy communications to be sent to the Public Safety Department. Additionally, the campus emergency number (414-277-7159) can also be used for immediate communication and response. Please reach out to the Public Safety Department should you become aware of any information or incident that may seem to be a threat to our community.



As always, the safety, health, and well-being of the student body are paramount. Know that the University will always do everything possible to maintain a safe and secure environment for all members of our community.



If you have any questions, please feel free to contact me.



Thank you,

Billy Fyfe

On Monday, November 25, 2019 at 10:54 AM, a silver Chevy Tahoe with tinted windows and license plate MV18599, entered the Water Street Parking Lot and broke into an employee's vehicle. There were four suspects, each playing a separate role in the theft.

If you see this vehicle on campus, please contact Public Safety at 414-277-7159. Please share this message with your friends.

Also, remember to keep your vehicle locked at all times, and to not leave your valuables out in the open. "Car Hopping" is fast and easy way for criminals to make off with your property.

On Monday, November 25, 2019 at 1:05 PM, the individual in the attached photos witnessed a student plug his laptop into the charging station on the 3rd floor of the Campus Center. The individual waited for several moments before unplugging the student's laptop and exiting the building.

If you see this individual on campus, please contact Public Safety immediately at 414-277-7159. Please share this message with your friends.

Also, please make sure to keep your property with you at all times. Often times students will leave their laptops, backpacks, purses, etc unattended for several minutes. Unfortunately it only takes several seconds for someone to walk off with your belongings.
