Public Safety

Public Safety Patch

Madison College Public Safety Services is a 24 hours-a-day, seven days-a-week service. The Public Safety Central Command Center is in room B1240 on the Truax campus.

The department consists of full-time, casual and student help officers, as well as security technicians and dispatchers.

Public Safety Services works closely with the City of Madison Police Department and other local jurisdictions to enforce federal, state and municipal laws and the Madison College Student Code of Conduct. This is done by routine patrols of both the interior and exterior of all Madison College-owned and leased buildings by uniformed patrol officers via foot, bicycle and marked squad cars.

The Public Safety Department uses the Wisconsin State Capitol Police Department to provide dispatch services for the department. The hours for this service are Monday through Friday from 10 p.m. to 6:30 a.m. and 24 hours on Saturdays, Sundays and holidays. Please keep in mind that if you are contacting Public Safety during those hours, the State Capitol Police will answer. Please do not hang up; you are calling the correct number. This partnership benefits the Madison College community and provides a direct link for the officers while increasing the level of officer safety. We work closely with the Wisconsin State Capitol Police and have partnered to ensure we continue to provide a safe and welcoming community. We appreciate this partnership.



As members of the Madison Area Technical College Public Safety Services Department, we are committed to working together toward a common goal of providing a safe environment for the entire campus community. This goal will be accomplished by providing a professional, cooperative, customer-driven service that is both flexible and responsive to the needs of all. This spirit of service and cooperation will also be extended to all outside law enforcement agencies, for without their assistance, our job would be a difficult one. We are committed to giving members of our campus community the highest level of professionalism that can be expected.

"Respect, Integrity and Excellence."
