- Community Engagement
Bicycle Patrol is a great way for our officers to interact with the citizens of South Milwaukee as it increases our visibility and mobility in the community.
The South Milwaukee Police Department performs a unique service to the community by teaching bicycle safety to all 3rd graders in our schools.
The work of police professionals is multifaceted and can be misunderstood by some in the community. Therefore, the South Milwaukee Police Department seeks to educate members of our community on the complicated nature of policing through a “Citizens Academy.”
Coffee with a Cop
Several times each year we join one of our local coffee shops to host “Coffee with A Cop.” This is an informal way to meet some of the South Milwaukee police officers, have a cup of coffee with them and ask questions in a relaxed setting.
Community Night Out
Community Night Out is our annual event to celebrate the partnership between the police department and the community we serve.
Crime Prevention Unit (CPU)
The Crime Prevention Unit (CPU) was created to ensure that we are responsive to the diverse needs of our community.
During this 10-week course, students cover a wide variety of topics, including the dangers tobacco and alcohol use, the harmful effects of bullying and the importance of good decision-making.
Neighborhood watch groups are a great way to connect with your neighbors and have a positive impact on your community.
Shop with a Cop
Through donations from Walmart and other sponsors, the South Milwaukee Police Department is able to take a group of less fortunate children to Walmart to shop for gifts for their families.
