WAUKESHA, Wis. - A judge has denied a request by the Wisconsin Professional Police Association (WPPA) and City of Pewaukee police union to halt the Common Council from voting on a contract with the Waukesha County Sheriff's Department for police services.

Waukesha County Circuit Court Judge Ralph Ramirez on Friday denied the plaintiffs a temporary restraining order, saying there were still too many uncertainties and the WPPA failed to show that WPPA members would experience irreparable harm if the Police Department is abolished. Members could still seek employment with the Waukesha County Sheriff's Department, Ramirez said.
