A big thank you and congratulations to the Brookfield Police Department, specifically Lieutenants Ed Petrak and Jim Episcopo, for putting on the Scam Alert presentation at Brookfield Village Hall on Nov. 30. 

Valuable information on how to outsmart the scammers was shared with the almost 40 citizens present. It is great to see our police department making such outreach programs to help our community. 

As the charter president of the Brookfield Citizens Police Academy Alumni Association, I wish to welcome and encourage all citizens (including seniors) to take advantage of the upcoming Citizens Police Academy classes when offered. 

There is no long-term commitment, but it is a very informative and educational opportunity to take a peek into the lives of law enforcement professionals. Watch for the ads in the upcoming months.
