About the Institution Grounds

Deputies of the Police Services Bureau provide law enforcement services to the Milwaukee Regional Medical Center (MRMC). These services include enforcing criminal and traffic laws, local parking regulations and any other violations of state statues and county ordinances. The division that patrols the grounds consists of one Captain, two Sergeants and thirteen deputies.

In addition to the above services, deputies also perform emergency detentions as requested by MRMC medical staff as well as requests from citizens of family members. Deputies also assist the public, employees and other agencies who bring prisoners for treatments and medical care at the MRMC.
