Citizens calling in to the Milwaukee Police Department’s non-emergency number will start to notice something different. Now, instead of hearing “elevator music” while on hold, people calling the number will hear public service announcements recorded by members of the Department. Callers will hear useful and relevant information, like the dangers of keeping your car running and unattended in the cold, while they wait for the next available telecommunicator to answer their call. No one likes to be placed on hold, but during high-demand times this becomes a necessity. Citizens are reminded to call 911 in emergencies but to call 414-933-4444 for non-emergency situations.
