Welcome to The Source, the Milwaukee Police Department’s Website news source for the community and the media to learn the most up-to-date information on MPD.
The Source provides the whole story – the one that television, radio and newspapers don’t have space or time to provide their audiences. We’ll post updates on current investigations and show videos of crimes in progress where you can help us catch the suspect. We’ll give you the opportunity to check out our Facebook, Twitter and YouTube pages where you can “follow” or “like” what we post there. We’ll correct the news stories that got it wrong and highlight the ones that got it right. The Source will share the good news stories on outstanding police work and heroic actions by officers not always covered in the mainstream news outlets.
We encourage you to check back to The Source at www.milwaukeepolicenews.com when you hear news reports that prompt you to seek more information. We’d like you to check us out first, because we will provide the news to you at the same time we’re providing it to the media. That way, the community and the news media receive it all at the same time – you don’t have to wait for 5 p.m. or 10 p.m. to get the story. And you get it all here.
The Milwaukee Police Department envisions a Milwaukee where all can live safely and without fear, protected by a police department with the highest ethical and professional standards.
