We Need YOUR Help Identifying Possible Problem Taverns

Taverns, night clubs, and other places that serve alcohol can be great members of our community that provide entertainment, relaxation, and enjoyment. They can also, however, be nuisances that can harm our shared quality of life. You have my promise that I will always work with you to first watch and then, if necessary, seek disciplinary action against troubled locations. Click here to read a full letter from Alderman Perez about how you an help (en espanol). Also, here is a list of all 12th District establishments.

Information on Sex Offender Residency Restrictions

On July 22, 2014, the Common Council passed File Number 140364, an ordinance relating to residency restrictions and loitering regulations for sex offenders, and it took effect on October 7, 2014. More information is available on this Frequently Asked Questions fact sheet prepared by the Milwaukee Police Department relating to its implementation. For additional questions, you can call Alderman Pérez's office at 286-2861. Please note the City of Milwaukee cannot provide legal advice to any individual regarding whether or how the provisions of this ordinance apply to his or her individual circumstances.

Crime Log Can Help Document Crime & Nuisance Activities

It is sometimes not clear whom to contact to report a crime, suspicious activity, nuisance problems or other incidents. The general rule of thumb recommended by Milwaukee Police is that if the incident constitutes an emergency, call 9-1-1. An “emergency” would include all life-threatening situations including shots fired, and all suspected crimes in progress including vandalism (especially graffiti vandalism), a fight or battery, loitering/prowling, robbery, or sexual assault.

If the situation is NOT an emergency, the number to call is 933-4444. Non-emergency situations generally include parking problems/issues, loud music and neighbor problems. If it is some other city issue, please call 286-CITY (286-2489).

This new citizen complaint log created at the request of Alderman Pérez can also help police and city officials combat crime and nuisance issues. Please document suspicious activity that includes loitering, drug activity, prostitution, vandalism, graffiti and any other behavior that you believe is illegal and/or disruptive in your neighborhood.

Safe Sleep for Your Baby

The City of Milwaukee Health Department strongly advises parents NOT to share a bed with their infant. This is based on an American Academy of Pediatrics 2005 Policy Statement that states that the “risk of SIDS has been shown to be reduced when the infant sleeps in the same room as the mother,” but the AAP recommends that infants not share a bed with parents or anyone else, due to proven hazards. Click here to view a video that offers some advice on how to avoid the problems associated with “co-sleeping” with infants.
