Officers rescue suicidal subject

Officers rescue suicidal subject.

Earlier this month, a 17yo female climbed the protective railing of a 4-story parking structure with the intention of jumping. The quick actions of the officer allowed him to rescue the female from the railing and bring her back to the safety of the structure and ultimately to mental health resources.

While this incident is extraordinary, the quick response and compassion shown by the officer isn’t, having compassion and empathy is essential to building and maintaining trusting relationships with those we serve.

If you or someone you love is experiencing a mental health crisis we urge you contact available resources such as the Milwaukee County Crisis Line at 414-257-7222 or the National Su***de Prevention Lifeline at (800) 273-8255.

Below is a short clip from officer's body worn camera of their interaction:

It's National Donut Day!

What is it with cops and donuts? There is a reason we associate police officers with donuts. Donut shops in the 1950s were one of the only places with snacks available for police officers working the night shift. Most donut shops and bakeries would start making their goods before the sun came up and as a result, they were some of the best options for officers who needed a quick bite to eat, a place to fill out paperwork or to simply sit and take a breather. And let’s be honest, they are delicious 😊

But no matter how the cliché started, a huge Thank You! to The Salvation Army Wisconsin & Upper Michigan for dropping of some delicious donuts for us to enjoy.

Fun Fact: National Donut Day was created in 1938 by The Salvation Army to honor the contributions of the volunteers who provided support -and donuts- to troops who fought in WWI.

SCAM ALERT

Recently, our City received what appeared to be a bill for the annual renewal service for website listings for the amount of $194. This was a scam attempt.

Scammers of this nature prey on businesses and people that aren't familiar with their internet and website service providers; they keep the dollar amount low in hopes that people will just pay the invoice.

Below are some articles about the scam, but if you or your business receive this fake invoice, you can just ignore it - no need to call police. If you have questions, call your internet or website providers directly - don't use the phone number or website listed on the invoice.
