Program Member Benefits

Our mission is to encourage and foster citizen and community involvement to make Milwaukee a safe city in which to live, work, and enjoy life. About 95% of the MPD budget is consumed by personnel salaries. That doesn’t leave much for the essential tools and resources the MPD needs to build community trust and provide for officer safety and wellness.
