On October 2, 2017 Captain Jaske, South Milwaukee Police Department Accreditation Manager, and Chief Wellens met with the Governing Board of the Wisconsin Law Enforcement Accreditation Group regarding the On-Site Assessment of the South Milwaukee Police Department which occurred in May 2017. At this meeting the South Milwaukee Police Department was awarded Accreditation Status on the 5th Edition of the Wisconsin Law Enforcement Accreditation Group Standards.

The South Milwaukee Police Department was one of three law enforcement agencies in the State of Wisconsin in 1998 to be awarded this status. This is the 6th Re-accreditation for the South Milwaukee Police Department. The South Milwaukee Police Department is the first agency in the State of Wisconsin to be accredited under the 5th Edition.

Accreditation offers the South Milwaukee Police Department several benefits: providing “norms” against which agency performance can be monitored and measured over time; increased cooperation and coordination with other law enforcement agencies; increased effectiveness and efficiency in the delivery of law enforcement services; and demonstrating to the community that the South Milwaukee Police Department is committed to continuing these standards through accreditation.
