Reach out to your NSC for the following:

The NSC’s chief responsibility is to assist in the process of information gathering, organization and reporting leading to the abatement of Community Partnership Unit (CPU) reported nuisances, including drug, gang, prostitution, graffiti and other civil and criminal issues that arise in and around properties located within the assigned Milwaukee Police District. In addition, the NSC works with Safe & Sound staff, the Community Prosecutors, the MPD and community-based organizations planning and coordinating community forums, landlord meetings, block watch meetings and community collaborations that orient residents, families and businesses on the nuisance abatement process. The NSC also provides resources and advocacy to encourage crime prevention, gang prevention and crime awareness.

Community Partnership Unit (CPU) 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 Partnership 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.
