Here are the responses from the chiefs in alphabetical order. Brown Deer & River Hills have not responded yet, but in all fairness the request was only recently made.
More Information on Phone Calls for Arrestees from Suburban Departments and Milwaukee Police --- Silence from Sheriff
All of the Northshore Police Departments have responded to my inquiry about whether they allow arrestees to make phone calls when they are arrested.
Every single one of the departments, in general, allow the arrestees to make calls. Procedures vary a little, but basically the arrestees are allowed to use their cell phones, or the police allow them to use the police phones, to make contact with someone who can bail them out.
Get pulled over on the wrong side of the street and you may be in jail without a chance to post bail !
In a continuation of the series I am doing on the phone policies of the Milwaukee County Jail and of the various police departments in Milwaukee County.
I have established a big disparity between your chances of going to jail if you are pulled over on a traffic stop and there is a warrant for your arrest out there, depending upon whether the MIlwaukee Police pull you over, or one of the suburban departments pull you over.
