Press Release

Check in on your neighbors to help keep our community safe

Statement of Alderwoman Marina Dimitrijevic May 25, 2021

Last night two armed individuals entered two homes in Bay View that resulted in stolen valuables and cars. The Milwaukee Police Department (MPD) is working diligently to apprehend those responsible for these crimes.

As the weather warms and activity throughout our district and city increases, we must all take extra precautions to ensure the safety of ourselves, our loved ones and our neighbors. To create less opportunity for theft make sure your windows are closed and locked, always make sure the entrances of your home are locked even if you are home, and consider enhancements such as extra lighting, door cameras or other security measures to deter intruders.

Perhaps most importantly, get to know your neighbors and check in on one another as our neighborhoods and blocks are stronger when we work together. If you see something out of the ordinary, say something and contact MPD by calling the non-emergency number at (414) 933-4444.

I’d also encourage area residents to attend the MPD District 6 Crime and Safety Meeting taking place tomorrow (Wednesday, May 26) at 6 p.m. The meeting will occur outdoors at the MPD Horse Stables located 143 E. Lincoln Avenue.

This will be an opportunity for residents to meet Acting Captain Glidewell, ask any questions, and enter a raffle to obtain a free Ring door camera. I hope you can make it.
