About the Milwaukee County Sheriff's Office

The Milwaukee County Sheriff's Office is the largest Sheriff's Office in the State of Wisconsin. Founded in 1835, it is also the oldest Sheriff's Office in the State.  The Milwaukee County Sheriff’s Office is organized into four bureaus: Administration; Detention: Patrol Services; Special Operations; and, Emergency Management.  The Administration Bureau contains: Community Relations, Fiscal Affairs, Internal Affairs Division and Open Records


The Detention Bureau contains: Cashiers, Inmate Programs, Jail Records and Visiting.  The Police Services Bureau contains: Airport Division, Criminal Investigation Division, Drug Enforcement, Explosive Ordnance Disposal, Patrol Division and Special Weapons and Tactics Division.  Special Weapons and Tactics (S.W.A.T.) deputies are assigned to regular duties throughout the Sheriff's Office and respond when needed. S.W.A.T. operations are divided into five specialized areas – a Command Post, Tactical Teams, Hostage Negotiators, K-9 Officer and Equipment Specialists.


The Special Operations Bureau of the Milwaukee County Sheriff’s Office contains the Central Records and Process Division, Communications Division, Courts Division, Department of Transportation Liaison and the Training Division.
