FPC approves 3 resolutions, including banning no-knock warrants in city of Milwaukee

MILWAUKEE (CBS 58) -- The Fire and Police Commission voted Thursday night, Nov. 18, to approve three resolutions to improve policing in the city of Milwaukee.

The first bans police officers from seeking and executing no-knock search warrants. 

Milwaukee Police Officer Matthew Rittner was killed in February 2019 after issuing a no-knock warrant.

The second -- whistleblower protection -- which clarifies that officers have a duty to report serious acts of misconduct and protects the reporting officers from retaliation.

The third is the adoption of MPD's Discipline Matrix, which will promote a more uniform and standard application of discipline for officers.
