Urban Area Security Initiative

About the Milwaukee Urban Area Security Initiative (UASI)

The Urban Area Security Initiative (UASI) is a collaborative public safety effort involving the City of Milwaukee and Milwaukee, Ozaukee, Racine, Washington and Waukesha counties. The Milwaukee UASI works with the Office of Justice Assistance and Wisconsin Emergency Management to evaluate the needs of all regional partners and jurisdictions, prioritize those needs and access available funding opportunities for initiatives and projects throughout the region.

Since 2004 the efforts of Milwaukee UASI staff and its regional partners have been successful in obtaining nearly $40 million in federal funding. These funds have been utilized in the City of Milwaukee and the surrounding region for such things as emergency medical team training, public health laboratory upgrades, hazardous materials and bomb squad equipment and training, emergency communications improvements, volunteer training and credentialing, continuity of operations planning, increased infrastructure protection and law enforcement intelligence analysis.  

Our pledge is to continue to create effective partnerships and maximize the efficient use of our resources to enhance the safety of everyone in southeastern Wisconsin.
