Building Safer Communities

SAFER COMMUNITIES FOR YOU!

Building Safer Communities

Wisconsin residents have spoken. They want safe communities. Statewide polling shows, four years in a row, “keeping our communities safe” is their top priority.

ABOUT THE “SAFER COMMUNITIES CAMPAIGN”

The campaign was born out of a shared recognition between the International Operating Engineer Local #139 and the Wisconsin Professional Police Association that BOTH are committed to building and protecting safer communities.

Together, these two groups will demonstrate how they are improving our communities’ quality of life across Wisconsin.
