MILWAUKEE (WITI) — The University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee held a housing fair Wednesday, and UWM campus police were on hand to answer questions about safety.
Officers are always on campus – 24 hours a day, 365 days year. They also patrol the area on a regular basis, including some of the nearby neighborhoods. But officers say despite their presence, students need to take their safety, and that of their home and property, into their own hands.
“You have to be personally responsible for some of your own personal property so it’s about me giving information so you’ll start thinking about what do I need to do when I leave the house, make sure I lock my doors, put up my property, if you have a bike,” said Officer Donald Brown with UWM Police.
So Wednesday they joined in on the housing fair to offer some tips to new renters and buyers.
