  1. Andy says:

    Why would it be a surprise that Sheriff Clarke is trying to hold on to some of the few resources he has? The facility has been run far better since it was taken over by the Sheriff’s dept, the county never should have taken it away in the first place. The politics between the county board and Sheriff Clarke is getting really old and it’s only hurting the county in the long run.

    Out of curiosity, if there’s 12 teams available for the correctional facilities… why do 10 go to Franklin and only two left downtown?

  2. Reading Comprehension says:

    “The Milwaukee County Sheriff’s Department operates the largest canine unit in the state of Wisconsin, with about 12 of its 20 teams assigned to the House of Correction, according to a 2011 document, issued when Clarke still had control of the facility.”

    “We have seven teams now, and three more will come soon.”

    Even if they weren’t split evenly, why should they be?

    Maybe there are more inmates in Franklin?
