Bank where robbery took place to host community safety forum
Alderman Dudzik, who played role in nabbing suspects, to take part in event
Alderman Joe Dudzik will participate in a community forum on crime prevention and neighborhood safety at 2 p.m. on Friday, October 4, at North Shore Bank, 4230 W. Oklahoma Ave. After a robbery at the bank location on September 12, Alderman Dudzik spotted two fleeing suspects and assisted police in apprehending them, and four suspects have been charged in the case.
The event on Friday will bring together bank representatives, business owners, residents and local officials, including Alderman Dudzik, and will serve as an introduction to a series of regular neighborhood safety discussions at North Shore Bank branches.
Alderman Dudzik said he is looking forward to the forum. “Public safety is the number one priority in Jackson Park, across my entire district and throughout Milwaukee, and I’m pleased that the bank has invited me to be a part of this important discussion,” he said.
“We would like to take this opportunity to thank Alderman Dudzik and the police for their brave efforts,” said Janet Dexter, district manager for North Shore Bank. “In addition to that, we want to bring the community together to discuss how we can make businesses and residents in the Jackson Park neighborhood as safe as possible. It’s more important now than ever to work together to find a way that we can all feel safe in the community where we live and work.”
At the forum, Alderman Dudzik will share news of available façade grants to help improve the neighborhood. Businesses will also be able to sign up for the Milwaukee Police Department’s eAlert system to stay vigilant and informed.
