'Blueprint for Change:' WI Professional Police Association releases proposals for reform
WISCONSIN (CBS 58) -- In the midst of calls for police reform, the Wisconsin Professional Police Association is releasing what it calls a "Blueprint for Change."
Proposals include statewide policies on the use of force, a ban on chokeholds, a grant program to expand the use of body cameras and protections for officers who report violations of police policies by other members of the force.
"We do think there are a lot of opportunities to enact some meaningful change, and we hope to move, do our part to move this dialogue forward in a constructive way," said Jim Palmer, executive director of the Wisconsin Professional Police Association.
A special legislative session called to tackle police reform is currently in recess and ends Thursday, Sept. 3.
The police association plans to lobby lawmakers and others, looking for support for its Blueprint for Change.
