Since January 2009, we have been conducting Neighborhood Partnership Meetings throughout our community. These gatherings have been extremely valuable in addressing neighborhood concerns, while updating citizens on current law enforcement issues and challenges that impact our quality of life. Due the success of this program, we have scheduled the following monthly meetings for 2010. If you are not sure what meeting date specifically addresses your neighborhood, please use the following link to the City of West Allis Website: http://www.ci.west-allis.wi.us/police/police_crime_prevention/nhbd_partnership_map.htm
Keep in mind that you can attend any meeting you wish. Here are the dates/locations for 2010.
The intent of this press release is to keep the citizens of West Allis informed about recent arrests of individuals from incidents that have been previously reported on the WestAllisNow website. On a frequent basis, a release of this nature will be shared with the citizens of West Allis. These relases reflect only a small portion of the arrests that occur on a monthly basis, but reflect the hard work, dedication and teamwork exhibited by the men and women of the West Allis Police Department.
As always, we encourage citizens to call the West Allis Police Department (414-302-8000) or the West Allis/West Milwaukee Crime Stoppers (414-476-CASH), if you have information on any ongoing investigation and/or knowledge that may lead to an arrest.
