Flick the Switch Program

Alderman Cavalier Johnson launched the Flick the Switch program during a news conference on Saturday, June 17, 2017 at Grantosa Drive Elementary School.

Alderman Johnson, a member of the Public Safety and Health Committee, said the Flick the Switch program will encourage people to turn on exterior home lights to dissuade criminal activity. “Criminals and burglars often use the dark to carry out their crimes without exposure. Exterior lights can help deter and discourage them from attempting such crimes,” Alderman Johnson explained.

Alderman Johnson was joined by BBC Lighting General Manager Michael Nooyen, local Block Watch captain Ron Kreutzer, the Office of Violence Prevention and members of the Milwaukee Police Department.

Alderman Johnson said MPD has agreed to take a helpful and proactive role in the launch of the Flick the Switch program. “The Milwaukee Police Department will help by going door to door to connect with residents and give away free light bulbs. This is very positive outreach by MPD and I appreciate their collaboration,” Alderman Johnson said.
