We are excited about using this site to communicate with our residents, businesses, and visitors.

Our Department’s mission is to provide a modern, flexible, full service department which is responsive to the community and its needs. Central to this mission is a set of values that will guide our work and decisions and allow us to make a significant contribution to improving the quality of life in South Milwaukee. Equally significant are realistic goals which provide direction and purpose and establish a standard for measuring progress and success.

While exploring our website, you will find pertinent information concerning a wide variety of Police Department and community issues. We also welcome your comments, suggestions and questions.

The members of the South Milwaukee Police Department would like to thank the numerous citizens, children, businesses, and local hospital that have either stopped at the Police Department or sent notes of appreciation and encouragement in support of our department and law enforcement. The treats dropped off at the department are greatly appreciated. I would like to thank the two children who took money from their piggy bank to purchase a “We Back the Badge” yard sign to show their support of law enforcement.

The Dallas Police Department, the families of the officers who were murdered last night, and the officers and citizens injured last night are in the thoughts and prayers of the members of the South Milwakee Police Department.
The South Milwaukee Police Department is commited to our Mission Statement:

“We, the members of the South Milwaukee Police Department, are dedicated to providing a proactive, full service department that enhances the quality of life in our community by reducing crime through the protection of life and property.”

-Chief Ann Wellens
