Edgewood College Security works closely with the City of Madison Police Department and the UW-Madison Police Department to ensure that areas on campus are as safe as possible. We are a community within a community and an active part of the City of Madison and its residents.

The Security Department is staffed by six full-time officers, five part-time officers, and a total of thirty student workers. The department maintains a staffed presence 24-hours a day and offers a variety of services to help keep students, faculty and staff as safe as possible.

The Eagle Alert System is designed to provide notification and instruction to students, faculty and staff in the event of an emergency on campus, including severe weather that results in cancellation of classes. The mass notification system will only be used to send critical safety information to the Edgewood College Community.

The College has deployed five Blue Light Alarm Systems. This series of emergency stations help provide assistance to anyone in distress. When the alarm is triggered, the Campus Security Department will be notified to dispatch an officer or an emergency team member to that location.

The Security office also provides services to students, faculty and staff such as Safety Escorts and SAFE Ride Shuttles. Safety escorts are available 24-hours a day and are available for campus use only. The SAFE Ride Shuttle operates the evenings of Thursday, Friday and Saturday, and will bring students to downtown Madison and back to campus. There are nine different stops along the way, please familiarize yourself with the SAFE Ride Shuttle Map.
