Marquette, Milwaukee Police Dept. to dedicate new police substation
Released: Oct. 3, 2006
Date: Thursday, Oct. 5, 2006
Time: 10:30 a.m.
Place: Avenues West Police Substation
2100 W. Wells St.
Marquette President Robert Wild, S.J., and Milwaukee Police Department Chief Nannette Hegerty will join officials from Marquette’s Department of Public Safety, the Avenues West Association and the city of Milwaukee to officially dedicate the Avenues West Police Substation, located at 2100 Wells St., on Thursday, Oct. 5, at 10:30 a.m.
The ceremony will include a blessing of the building and official ribbon cutting.
The police substation originally opened in 1992 as a result of a grant from the U.S. Department of Justice. In recent years, the facility was not able to fully accommodate the needs of local law enforcement. Marquette, the Milwaukee Police Department and the Avenues West neighborhood joined efforts to substantially upgrade and refurbish the station. As a result of this public-private partnership, there is now a constant presence at the site by MPD and DPS officers who are working to have a substantial, positive impact on overall safety and security for the entire Near West Side.
