Milwaukee County Sheriff's Office

The Milwaukee County Sheriff’s Officer alerts the public to a phone scam. Scammers are using the Sheriff's Office phone numbers to scare Milwaukee County residents. Scammers call citizens and tell them they have missed jury duty, and a warrant has been issued for their arrest.

The Sheriff's Office does not call or email citizens threatening arrest. If you receive a similar call, hang up. If you fall victim to the scam and suffer monetary losses, report the call via email to [email protected], or by phone at 414-278-4705.

The phone numbers scammers use mirror actual Sheriff's Office numbers, a concept called "Spoofing." Spoofing occurs when a caller deliberately falsifies the information transmitted to your caller ID display to disguise their identity. Spoofing is often used as part of an attempt to trick someone into giving away valuable personal information so it can be used in fraudulent activity or sold illegally.

I am grateful and relieved to have received both doses of this vaccine.

Implementing an organized and efficient vaccine distribution plan should be the priority at every level of government. I am hopeful that Wisconsin’s vaccine rollout will continue to accelerate.

Until COVID-19 is under control, I encourage everyone to take steps to keep our community healthy and safe. Please continue to wear masks, maintain distance and follow public health guidelines.

Supervisors Denounce Anti-Democratic Coup Attempt
in Washington D.C.

Milwaukee – Supervisors Ryan Clancy, Joseph J. Czarnezki, Jason Haas, Willie Johnson, Jr., Sylvia Ortiz-Velez, Shawn Rolland, Steven Shea, Liz Sumner and Sheldon A. Wasserman released the following statement regarding the riotous mob storming the United States Capitol in a reprehensible attempt to stop Congress from certifying the Presidential elction:

“There is nothing else to call the disgraceful acts committed at the Capitol today than a coup attempt. We must also be clear that President Trump is directly responsible for this violent act of insurrection. Trump’s egregious lies and debunked conspiracy theorizing around election fraud has incited a group of his supporters to storm the Capitol causing massive destruction and violence, and most importantly, threatening the peaceful transition of power that is central to our democracy.

"Today is the saddest moment for American democracy since the Civil War. The United States Congress was in the process of performing its constitutionally delegated duty of reporting the results of the November election when a mob, inspired by the president, stormed the Capitol building and tried to overturn the will of the American voters. We call upon every office holder and law enforcement member to protect the Constitution and restore the rule of law.

“Congress should act swiftly to impeach the President for a second time, and this time he should be removed from office. The cabinet should also move forward with invoking the 25th Amendment, as it is clear this President does not have the ability to lead our country.

“This is domestic terrorism. The contrast is striking between the amount of leeway this mob has been given compared to the marchers we have seen met with the National Guard and police brutality in the streets of Kenosha and Wauwatosa. Neither of these is justice.

“People on TV are saying this is a surprise and that ‘this is not America,’ but we are not surprised—this is America right now. This is the predictable outcome of electing federal and state officials who never meet in the middle, never listen to each other and always hate their enemy. We need to start hearing each other and getting along better. Donald J. Trump, the man who weaponized all of this division, should be ashamed—and so should all of the federal and state leaders who allowed his poisonous divisiveness to tear the country we love apart.”

I was excited and relieved to receive my first dose of the COVID-19 vaccine on December 24th.

I appreciate the hard work that made this vaccine available so quickly, and I am confident in its safety.

Millions have gotten terribly sick, over 300,000 people in the United States have died, our economy has suffered tremendously and everyone has been impacted by this disease. This vaccine will help our world recover.

This summer, Milwaukee’s lakefront experienced a string of tragedies. Three individuals lost their lives in the water at McKinley Beach. To prevent others from drowning, it was decided to close McKinley Beach for the remainder of the year.

I authored an amendment to the 2021 Budget that provides funds to the Parks Department to conduct a Safety Study at McKinley Beach. The Parks department will study the design of the beach and break walls, look closely at rip-currents, and make suggestions if remediation is needed. The budget amendment was supported by the Board of Supervisors and became a part of the 2021 Adopted Budget. An initial report will be available at the March 25th County Board Meeting.

I urge everyone to pay attention to all posted warning signs and use sound judgement when visiting our lakefront and waterways.

Hi Dr. Wasserman! If you are free, please consider attending the Concord Chamber Orchestra’s annual holiday concert at the Basilica of St. Josaphat this Saturday.
