Reporting Suspicious Activity


No law enforcement agency can function effectively without the concerned assistance of responsible citizens. We are depending on you to call and tell us whenever you observe suspicious persons, actions or vehicles.

Some people fail to call the police simply because they are not aware of what seemingly innocent activities might be suspicious. Others may notice suspicious activity and be hesitant to call for fear of being viewed as a nosy neighbor. Still others take it for granted that someone else has already called.

Reporting Suspicious Activity

Call the Menomonee Falls Police Department (through Waukesha County Communications at 262-446-5070) immediately about all suspicious activity - and do it yourself! Don't worry about bothering the police, or about being embarrassed if your suspicions prove unfounded. Think instead about what could happen if you don't act. The Menomonee Falls Police Department welcomes your calls.

Helpful Information For the Police

  • What happened
  • When and where did it take place
  • Who did it and was anyone injured
  • Description of any persons involved, including how many, and if they were armed
  • Did they say anything
  • Any vehicle license numbers or descriptions that were involved
  • Direction of flight

When describing suspects try to notice age, race, sex, height, and weight. Compare your weight and height with the suspect. Pick out unique characteristics which may help you identify the suspect in the future if need be.
