    The Waukesha County Police Chief’s Association (WCPCA) is holding its 32nd Annual WCPCA Golf Outing on Wednesday September 13, 2017 at the Western Lakes Golf Course to raise money for several charitable organizations that are important to public safety in Waukesha County communities. This year the WCPCA has partnered with Crime Stoppers of Waukesha County.  


    Our primary beneficiary is the Waukesha County Child Advocacy Resource Center (CARE) which provides treatment for victims of child abuse, and assists law enforcement with investigations of crimes of physical and sexual abuse against children. The CARE Center is an invaluable resource for law enforcement, the families, and most of all the children who have been victimized by these types of crimes.  


    Thanks to your generosity our 2016 outing raised over $13,000 which was distributed to:  

    The CARE Center
    The Waukesha County Women’s Center
    Waukesha County Crime Stoppers Program
    The Waukesha County Chaplains’ Association Special Olympics of Wisconsin
    The Yell and Tell program  

    In addition the WCPCA provided scholarship funding for selected students enrolled in the Law Enforcement program at Waukesha County Technical College.  


    I recognize there are many worthwhile causes seeking your support. The WCPCA is a local organization committed to keeping Waukesha County safe by investing in our community. We sincerely ask for your partnership in sponsoring this event so we may once again provide needed funding to these local programs and organizations.   Please see attached flyer and registration form for more details.

    Special One-Day Electronics and Appliance Recycling Event


    The Town of Merton will be hosting a special one-day collection of household electronics and appliances open to any Waukesha County resident on Saturday, August 12 from 9:00 a.m. to noon. The collection will take place at N78 W32101 Petersen Road.

    State law bans electronics and appliances from landfills and incinerators due to the valuable materials that can be recycled and reused, including precious metals like gold and copper.  Many devices also contain hazardous materials such as lead, mercury, cadmium, chromium and chemical flame retardants that need to be disposed of properly.  This collection assists residents to comply with State law and provide options for responsible recycling of used, household electronics and appliances.

    Items that will be collected at the event for a cash only fee include television sets ($25 each) and Cathode Ray Tube computer monitors ($10 each).  No broken or de-manufactured television or computer units will be accepted.  These additional items will be collected at no fee: computers, other computer monitors, printers, keyboards, laptops, scanners, DVD players, VCRs, stereos, cell phones, telephones, air conditioners, dehumidifiers, refrigerators, microwaves, watercoolers, freezers, water heaters, washer/dryers, stoves, oven/ranges, dishwashers.

    These collection events are for household electronics and appliances only. Businesses are required by Wisconsin law to recycle and there are several options to contract for these services listed on our website.

    The City of Muskego will host the next collection event on Saturday, September 9 at W182 S8200 Racine Avenue from 9:00 a.m. to noon.  For a list of upcoming events, business recycling options and locations to recycle broken or de-manufactured units, visit our website waukeshacounty.gov/recycling or call 262-896-8300.

    Waukesha County Executive Paul Farrow's Statement on Foxconn...

    Waukesha County Executive Paul Farrow's Statement on the Foxconn Announcement


    “First, I want to thank Governor Scott Walker for his leadership and his commitment to economic development. Both were vital to landing this once in a lifetime opportunity. The Governor engaged regional partnerships, including the legislature; the Wisconsin Economic Development Corporation (WEDC); the Milwaukee 7 (M7) and its partners; and county and municipal leaders to work together with a common goal. Public and private partners rolled up their sleeves and worked together to bring Foxconn here. This is what a true partnership looks like, and it is the key to growth statewide.

     “Now that Foxconn is on its way, these partnerships will become even more vital. Our work is just beginning. This deal will require a diverse workforce to fill thousands of new skilled positions. Local, regional and state leaders must work together to scale up an education and training infrastructure to support the growing economy and business climate.

     “We are already seeing success in our efforts to grow our high-tech workforce. For example, Madison is ranked number one in the nation for tech job momentum. That’s in addition to Milwaukee’s pool of tech talent. Through regional partnerships we can tap into existing local economic development infrastructure and relationships to bolster our existing workforce development infrastructure and to continue to attract top talent to the state.

     I’ve said before that the M7 has a chance to shake things up when it comes to thinking about how to attract national and international businesses to our area. That shake up is happening now through collaboration to build a world-class, thriving economy.”

    Waukesha County Executive Paul Farrow is a co-chair of the Milwaukee 7, the region’s economic partnership. County Executive Farrow recently led a group of private and public sector partners in establishing the Waukesha County Center for Growth, an economic development organization that serves as a one-stop shop for new and expanding businesses in Waukesha County.

    Waukesha County Executive Paul Farrow Statement on Washington County's Shared Services Proposal


    “We have received Washington County’s letter and I have spoken to County Administrator Schoemann to express interest in a partnership to increase service to residents while saving valuable taxpayer dollars.

     “Waukesha County has a history of partnering with our neighbors to increase value to the County and the region as a whole. In Washington County, we are already working with them on juvenile secure detentions, aquatic invasive management in lakes, workforce development and home buying and rehabilitation assistance for income eligible citizens.

     “In the past few days, our Department of Parks and Land Use has already reached out to Washington County to see what additional projects we can begin work on together right away. In the meantime, I am assembling a group to start evaluating additional ways to combine Waukesha and Washington County resources.

     “In addition, our recycling program partners with the City of Milwaukee to operate our Materials Recovery Facility (MRF); the Waukesha County Medical Examiner often provides professional services and expertise to surrounding counties; and our Bridges Library System serves residents in Waukesha and Jefferson counties. These are just a few examples of how Waukesha County innovates and shares resources with our neighbors to ensure delivery of efficient, cost effective services to our taxpayers.
