Crime Down 20% in South Milwaukee

Some great news from the South Milwaukee Police Department, as we continue to head in the right direction on crime in South Milwaukee …

Of course, one crime, every one of these data points, is too many, but the numbers tell a positive story for our city, and it’s something we should all be proud of.

Fighting crime is a community effort, a partnership with our citizens that begins with our police department. I thank our officers for their tireless work in keeping us safe, especially during this most difficult of years.

We are pleased to report that in 2020 we saw some significant decreases in several categories of crime, including aggravated assault, simple assault, burglary and theft. Unfortunately, we experienced a slight increase in robberies and weapons law violations during the year. Overall, crime decreased by 20% from the previous year total.We are including several charts and graphs for your review and we are also including a comparison to previous years so you have some context for these crime and safety numbers. As you can see from the graphs, we are trending in the right direction over the past five years. Additional details will be presented in our upcoming annual report.
