The City of Milwaukee’s Alert Neighbor Program emphasizes community involvement in addressing crime and safety concerns in Milwaukee neighborhoods. The program is a partnership between neighborhood block clubs, the Milwaukee Police Department, the City of Milwaukee, and local non-profits to evaluate persisting neighborhood issues and develop strategies to reduce these problems. The Alert Neighbor Program will assist neighborhood block clubs to identify and implement strategies, like reporting criminal activity, holding regular neighborhood meetings, and planning neighborhood improvement projects, to reduce safety concerns. Additionally, the Alert Neighbor Program will provide funding for physical improvements in the neighborhood. These improvements range from crime watch signs and porch lighting to security cameras installed around the community.
