Milwaukee sheriff's inspector not happy with evictions bill

MILWAUKEE (WTAQ) - A high-ranking Milwaukee County sheriff’s official takes issue with a bill on evictions that’s up for a vote in the state Assembly Tuesday.

The bill would let landlords dispose of property left behind by the tenants they evict, without informing those tenants in advance and without having law enforcement on hand.

Milwaukee County sheriff’s inspector Ed Bailey says property removal often creates tensions – and letting landlords remove property themselves, “would not fit well with our experiences in a major urban city.”

Bailey says his deputies have made arrests at eviction sites, and officers have been attacked while protecting movers and landlords from being assaulted.
