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.

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.
