What is “sexting”? By definition from the National Campaign to Prevent Teen and Unplanned Pregnancy, sexting is the act of sending, receiving, or forwarding sexually explicit messages, photos, or images via cell phone, computer, or other digital device. With the ever increasing access to technology, “sexting” is becoming more and more prevalent among teenagers and even adolescent children.
The Brown Deer Police Department would like to take this opportunity to remind our residents of the importance of having your dog or cat licensed through the Village of Brown Deer or Milwaukee County. All dogs and cats five months or older must be properly licensed.
On 12-27-09 Brown Deer Police Department officers took a complaint of a burglary in the Village. Shortly thereafter a report of a supicious person was investigated whereby a suspect approached a home that appeared empty. When the homeowner answered the door the suspect stated that his car had ran out of gas in the area and asked if he could borrow some gas money from the home owner. The suspect then left the residence after being refused the money. The Police Department believes this person may be the same indivdual who burglarized the home earlier.
