Security at the Democratic National Convention in Milwaukee

The Democratic National Convention is coming to Milwaukee in 2020. As Wisconsinites, we here at H&S Protection are happy to see the extra business coming to the state. It’s good for the economy, adds jobs over the next 18 months, and brings vigor to both downtown Milwaukee and the surrounding suburbs.

As a business housed in one of those suburbs in Pewaukee/Waukesha, we stand poised to help with unique security needs in the coming 18 months. An important issue that was addressed in selecting Milwaukee was the number of hotel rooms in the area. Without enough rooms to house the conventioneers, the city would not have won the bid. There are several hotels going up now in  Brookfield/Waukesha. Perimeter and video security systemsare typically put in place by hotels, and we have all those related products to deliver.

Beyond hotels though, Milwaukee and the surrounding area will have a lot of activity in the coming months, and a need to ensure high level officials are protected and safe. Any of the downtown buildings near the new Fiserv Arena, which houses the Milwaukee Bucks, should be thinking now about what new or extra they want in place to ensure the safest area for those coming to the convention.


Milwaukee will only get one chance to make a first impression and demonstrate the great qualities Wisconsin and the upper Midwest hold dear. We fully expect warm hospitality to be extended. For those visiting the city for the first time, they will find a livable city, ease of getting around, great old world restaurants and an amazing waterfront around Lake Michigan.


If you are a local business looking to up your security during these coming months, please give us a call at 262.574.7777 or email owner Steve Garritson at [email protected]. We are family owned and run since 1959, and dedicated to hometown values known throughout Wisconsin.
