Milwaukee - On Wednesday, Police Officer Jesus Gloria from the Second Police District announced that newly appointed Captain of Police Rebecca L. Pixley will be present to welcome local residents during their 2011 Open House for the station on October 1st. The one day event will take place at Police District 2 station, 245 W. Lincoln Ave. between 11:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. People can take a tour of the station during the event and learn about the numerous resources available to the community at large.
Captain Pixley replaced former Captain Donald J. Gaglione from the Second District station. She was appointed by Police Chief Edward A. Flynn on August 23, to fill the Captain's vacant position, which became available on September 18. Pixley was a Police Lieutenant in Police District 5 and a member of the Tactical Enforcement Unit, before being promoted by Flynn.
Officer Gloria reported that numerous specialty units will be present during the Open House for the public to view and enjoy. Some of the units will be the Mounted Horse Patrol, Command Post, Tactical Enforcement Unit, Canine Unit, Motorcycle Unit, Hazardous Devices Unit, Dive Team and Police Boat, Cadillac Police Truck, the Milwaukee Fire Department, Bell Ambulance, especially the "Police Rhino" known as the surveillance unit and more, according to Officer Gloria.
Police District 2 serves more than 87,000 residents and is located in the predominately Hispanic community district.

The Police Rhino surveillance unit parked in front of Taino's Sports Bar, which three windows were shot at in May and haven't been replaced making it an eye soar for thousands of people that drive through S. 6th St. and W. National Ave. everyday.
