Burlington Police Chief Peter Nimmer declined the Police Commission's job offer, and Waukesha Police Captain Ronald Tischer has accepted another position.

Shorewood Police Chief David Banaszynski has pitched the idea of consolidating Shorewood and Whitefish Bay’s police departments, most recently in late February 2011, but discussion has now expanded to include the City of Glendale.
Three North Shore communities have agreed to take a serious look at whether consolidation of their police forces is a viable move.

Officials from each municipality have met several times to discuss the merits of consolidating police services, according to Shorewood officials. In a memo, village managers, presidents and mayors from the three municipalities said consolidation would provide for: But it is apparent that a merger might result in some loss of local control and the ability…

This drunk driver destroyed a few yards in Bayside and was then picked up by Whitefish Bay police.
A 26-year-old Milwaukee woman was pulled over at 12:24 a.m. Friday in the 5100 block of North Ardmore by Whitefish Bay police for driving on three tires and a rim, and police learned later that that wasn't all she'd done.

This is the second time he's tried to pass a bad check in the North Shore.
A 43-year-old Whitefish Bay man didn't get a second chance after he tried to run another worthless check heist at the Fox Point M&I Bank. On Oct. 22, the man went into M&I Bank in Fox Point and opened an account in his daughter's name according to Fox Point police. On Nov. 14, he deposited a check for $8,400 drawn on a TCF Bank account. Just one day later, he nearly emptied the account, withdrawing $8,210 from an M&I Bank in Mequon, the report said. The check was returned to the bank on Nov. 18, and bank employees discovered the TCF Bank account the check was drawn on had been closed since August 2007. But this isn't the first time this man has drawn a large check on a closed account. On July 11, he deposited a check into an account in his…
