Marquette University to get its own police force

MILWAUKEE (WTAQ) - Marquette University can have its own full-fledged police officers, under a bill to be signed into law Monday morning.

Governor Scott Walker is scheduled to hold a ceremony at the private Milwaukee Jesuit school.

It allows Marquette to have officers who can enforce state and local laws on the campus groups and adjacent areas. The university officers would have the same arrest powers as Milwaukee Police.

Assembly Republican Dale Kooyenga of Brookfield and Senate Republican Alberta Darling of River Hills were the lead sponsors of the measure, and lawmakers of both parties co-sponsored it.

Last month, Marquette officials said they had not decided whether to hire its own sworn officers.
