The Sheriff's community relations staff makes community contact and outreach a priority. We currently write a weekly page in the Express News, a free newspaper published by Hometown Publications. Our page features the most wanted fugitives, agency news and helpful safety tips. Good community relations also includes an open and honest relationship with the media. A media relations contact is available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
You'll also see Milwaukee County Sheriff's Office representatives in your neighborhoods, schools and community meetings. We often:
- Display informational booths at safety events, community resource fairs and other special functions.
- Make presentations. Upon request, deputies will speak to groups of children and adults. Topics include personal safety, drug education, and safe driving techniques to name a few. Deputies also attend school career days.
- Showcase community relations vehicles in parades. Our community relations vehicles are seized from drug dealers by the Sheriff's drug enforcement unit. We use these vehicles to educate the public about the dangers of drugs.
- Volunteer. Deputies and other staff members frequently volunteer their time to help food pantries, the Special Olympics, book drives, children's holiday dinners and much more.
Together we can develop innovative and proactive measures to keep our community safe. We believe this is important because we are more than law enforcement officers, we are your friends and neighbors. Give us a call.
