Tis the season of...BURGLARIES! Police Dept. says, lock, watch, report

A district 6 friend passed this alert onto me from Alderman Jerry Mellone concerning Chief of Police Daniel Tushaus' burglary warning. District 7 is not immune to burglaries either. Last year we had several during the daylight hours, so take heed.

I want to make you aware of burglaries in Brookfield. Please be vigilant. Watch for strange cars cruising the neighborhood or parked in driveways. This happened to my son this past year. We did not suspect anything and the burglar was successful. I don't want this to happen to anyone else. Please share this information with your neighbors.

Jerry MelloneAlderman 6th district

The City of Brookfield PD is investigating approximately eighteen residential burglaries in the past month. The burglaries have been reported throughout the entire City with the majority of them occurring during the daytime or early evening hours. Residents are asked to lock all windows and doors when leaving. It is especially important to lock the service door to the garage and the door from the garage to the house. Having outside lights and motion lights around the house is also a good idea. Residents are asked to inform a trusted neighbor when they will be out of town in order to have someone watch their home while they are gone. Residents are asked to work together in order to immediately report suspicious persons or activities to the police department.

Thank you!

Capt. Phil HorterCity of Brookfield PD

The burlary issue continues to be a problem. Two homes on 165th St, south of Bluemound and one on Golf Parkway can be added to the statistics over this past week. Everyone needs to be vigilant, look out for your neighbors. Inform the police of any unusual things occurring around your area. We need to stop these thefts now! I should know because our house was added to this list over the last week!!
