Earlier this week, UWW-TV responded to the active threat notification on campus. After some investigation, UW-Whitewater Police confirmed that the notification was a false alarm and that it was the result of a technological glitch in the alert system. The notification caused a bit of campus panic, but there was not, at any point, an active shooter or active threat on campus. The police department has also stated that they will be completing a more thorough investigation to prevent further scenarios from taking place.

Students should remember to take these instances seriously and to always RUN, HIDE, or FIGHT until otherwise notified by law enforcement or the university itself. Stay safe, Warhawks!
