Have you heard reports of a robbery in the neighborhood? The theft of a car? Ald. Bohl wants 5th District residents to know they can now receive email notification of crime activity in their neighborhoods or in any area they choose, using the City of Milwaukee's E-Notify system.

The new Police Verified Offense Notification feature of E-Notify includes eight crime categories: aggravated assault, robbery, burglary, vehicle theft, theft, arson, criminal damage to property and locked vehicle entry. Notices of crime incidents by address or near an address will be sent directly to your computer Monday through Friday.

To subscribe, log into E-Notify on the city's web page at www.milwaukee.gov/enotify, locate the Police Verified Offense Notification and put in an address you are interested in or properties within 600 feet, 1,000 feet or a half-mile radius of the address. Each day you will be notified by e-mail if there are new crimes for the address or radius chosen with an email subject heading similar to "New Crime Incident."
