Business Week magazine's fourth annual survey recently ranked West Allis the "Best Places to Raise Your Kids" in the Milwaukee area. If that doesn't exemplify a safe community, we're not sure what does! Our high quality school district contributes to making West Allis a great place to raise a family.
The City of West Allis is proud of our accredited Police and Fire Departments. The Police Department has preserved our safe neighborhoods and contributes to the maintenance of an overall low crime rate. The Police Department is actively present throughout the community by squad car, motorcycle, bicycle, and officers on foot patrol. The West Allis Fire Department is at the forefront of fire protection serving from three fire stations. It is the only nationally accredited fire department in Wisconsin and established one of the first EMS programs in the metro area.
