In July, 1999, the City Council established the City’s first Public Safety Commission. This action firmly demonstrated the Council’s commitment to deal with issues affecting our community’s public safety.

The intent of the City Council in setting up the Commission was to make sure the City has a representative and responsible group of citizens to advise the City Council, City staff, and the general public in how to meet the many challenges encountered by our community.


The Commission is responsible for advising on the basic policies which may guide the City Council when considering action to deal with the problems associated with Public Safety issues.

The Public Safety Commission acts as a citizens’ advisory board to the City Council concerning matters of public safety, including:

  • Code enforcement
  • Community services
  • Emergency preparedness 
  • Fire department matters
  • Law enforcement

The purpose of the Commission is to make recommendations to the City Council to make Cudahy a safer place to live thus improving the quality of life for all of our residents in the community.
