ANNUAL SECURITY AND FIRE SAFETY REPORT CONTENTS

In compliance with the Higher Education Opportunity Act of 2008, this policy sets forth procedures for the reporting, investigating and making emergency notifications regarding any currently-enrolled student who is believed to be missing.

A student will be presumed to be missing when his/her absence, of 24 hours or more, is inconsistent with his/her established patterns of behavior and the deviation cannot be readily explained.

Reporting a Possible Missing Student:

Any member of the university community, including both employees and students, who is concerned that a currently-enrolled student may be missing should immediately contact the Department of Public Safety at 414-288-6800. Any university employee who receives a report of a possible missing student must immediately refer such report to DPS. DPS shall investigate all reports and determine whether a student is missing. If DPS determines that a student is missing, it shall notify the Office of Student Affairs. Further, DPS shall notify the Milwaukee Police Department, and/or other appropriate law enforcement agencies, as necessary.

Missing Person Emergency Contact:

Students will soon be able to designate a "Missing Person Emergency Contact" online via CheckMarq Self-Service. If a student is determined to be missing, DPS shall notify the designated Missing Person Emergency Contact not later than 24 hours after the student is determined to be missing. This contact information is considered confidential and will only be accessible to authorized university or law enforcement personnel.

Parent/Guardian Notification for Students under 18 years of age:

If a student is under 18 years of age (and not emancipated) and is determined to be missing, DPS shall notify a custodial parent or guardian not later than 24 hours after the student is determined to be missing.

Law Enforcement Notification:

If a student is determined to be missing, DPS shall notify the Milwaukee Police Department, or other appropriate law enforcement agency, not later than 24 hours after the student is determined to be missing.
