Madison College Public Safety

Officer Lucas Adler, Public Safety Officer

Public Safety Officers respond to many calls for service and we communicate our activities to the college community.  Here are some of our recent notable incidents:

On Nov. 16, Public Safety along with the Madison Fire Department responded to a female student that fainted at the Truax campus. The student was transported to a nearby hospital.

On Nov. 17, a Public Safety officer contacted a vehicle in one of the Truax parking lots just after midnight. The vehicle was occupied by one male student.  The student was found to have drug paraphernalia in his possession.  This incident has been referred to the Dean of Students office and Behavioral Intervention Team. 

On Nov. 19, officers responded to a hit and run vehicle collision in one of the Truax student parking lots. The suspect has not been identified at this time. If you become a victim of a hit and run collision and do not have any suspect information, you may fill out a self-report form through the WI Department of Transportation. Public Safety can provide you with written instructions on how to properly report your incident.

On Nov. 26, Public Safety received numerous complaints from staff for a man calling them and harassing and threatening them by telephone. Public Safety have identified the suspect and he is not a student or resident in Wisconsin. This incident has been referred to another law enforcement agency and contact was made with the suspect.  Please report any harassing behavior to Public Safety immediately.

Public Safety Update

Madison Area Technical College’s Sexual Misconduct policy and procedures apply to all students, employees, visitors, and independent contractors, regardless of sexual orientation or gender identity; and it applies both to on-campus as well as off-campus conduct that would impact the learning environment.

After a sexual assault, victims often sense a loss of control. This is normal. Know that there are people on and off campus who will offer support and can help you make the decisions that are right for you to take care of yourself. It is important to remember that you have choices.  There is no one right way to take care of yourself.  If you or someone you know are a victim of sexual assault or dating violence, please contact Public Safety at 608-245-2222.  You can tell us.
