Milwaukee Police Department Partners

Safe & Sound’s neighborhood safety coordinators work alongside MPD to combat public safety issues and serve as a bridge between residents and the police. There are many roles within the police departments, so we thought it would be helpful to provide a breakdown of the common MPD partners Safe & Sound works with. 


Community Partnership Unit (CPU)

Community Liaison Officer (CLO) - focuses on community events

Community Partnership Officer (CPO) - focuses on nuisance properties

Assistant District Attorney (ADA) - government official who represents the government in the prosecution of criminal cases

Anti-Gang Unit (AGU) or Violent Crime Reduction Unit (VCRU)

About Community Prosecution: Community Prosecution is a pro-active crime fighting collaborative involving the District Attorney’s Office, the police, Probation and Parole, Department of Neighborhood Services, community-based organizations, and citizens in Milwaukee police districts. The program is designed to reduce crime, engage our citizens, and utilize limited resources in the most efficient manner to make our neighborhoods safer. The Milwaukee County District Attorney’s Community Prosecution Unit has equipped prosecutors and police with better community input allowing a more effective response to neighborhood issues. It also brings citizens and law enforcement partners more closely together in enforcing the law while preventing crime and improving the overall quality of life in Milwaukee.

Safe & Sound regularly meets with partners (MPD, DNS, the District Attorney's Office, City Attorney's Office, etc.) to brainstorm best ways to address nuisance problems in the community.
