NORTHSHORE SUBURBAN POLICE CHIEFS RESPOND REGARDING TELEPHONE POLICIES FOR DETAINEES

Crime & Punishment, Sheriff David Clarke, Phone Calls from Jail, Collect Calls, Cell Phones, Minor Crimes, Suburban Police Department Policies, Bayside, Brown Deer, Fox Point, Glendale, River Hills, Shorewood, Whitefish Bay

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.

BAYSIDE

David, we do allow telephone calls in almost all instances before transport to other facilities.  We find it extremely beneficial if family and friends know the whereabouts of their loved ones.  This facilitates appropriate representation, bail, etc.

Generally the only arrestees not allowed access to a phone are those that have been uncooperative and/or pose some type of security threat.

If you need any further information please let me know.

Chief Bruce Resnick
Bayside Police Department

BROWN DEER

(No response as of yet, will update later)

FOX POINT

David:

   Yes, all prisoners are allowed to make phone calls before being transported to the Milwaukee County. 

 Thomas J. Czaja

Chief of Police

Fox Point Police Department     

GLENDALE

David,

We allow phone calls.  There is no variation due to type of arrest.

Tom Czarnyszka
Glendale PD

RIVER HILLS

(No response as of yet, will update later)

SHOREWOOD

We allow them to make a few telephone calls from our telephone. No charge. We would rather have them bail out then take them to the county jail. We have limited staff to leave the Village.

Chief David M. Banaszynski

Shorewood Police Department

WHITEFISH BAY

Dear Mr. Tatarowicz.  We do not have a standard policy that indicates when persons taken into custody are allowed or not allowed to make phone calls.  Each situation is handled on a case by case basis.  The majority of times, however, people are allowed to make phone calls, if requested, prior to being taken to the Milwaukee County Jail.

Sincerely,

Chief Robert Jacobs
Whitefish Bay Police Department
