Alderman Mark A. Borkowski is voicing strong concern after a rash of early morning break-ins across Milwaukee’s 11th District. It happened overnight between midnight and 3 a.m. between the 2700 and 3000 blocks of S. 38th St. and S. 50th St. At least 13 garages and cars were broken into.

Alderman Borkowski is urging residents to lock their garages and car doors, as many of the victims were targeted after leaving their cars and garages unlocked.

In light of the crime throughout Milwaukee, Alderman Borowski is demanding greater police visibility. He says he’s disappointed in Mayor Tom Barrett’s proposal to trim police officers in the upcoming budget saying, “This is not the time to cut police officers. Our residents feel vulnerable and we need to see more officers in our neighborhoods, not less.”

Police continue to investigate the overnight break-ins, and anyone with information is urged to call the Milwaukee Police Department.
