MILWAUKEE (CBS 58) -- Milwaukee Police Department Acting Chief Michael Brunson says he is working to fulfill the directives that were handed out to former Chief Alfonso Morales by the Fire and Police Commission. 

The Fire and Police Commission met Thursday, August 27, for the first time since demoting Morales. 

In addition to discussing the directives, which the Fire and Police Commission said still needed to be completed, Brunson talked about his command staff. He promoted three members of the department to assistant chief. 

Brunson said they are ready to move forward and engage with the community during what he said was the most challenging time in his career when it comes to the relationship between the police and the community. 

“We all want the same thing, and that is to improve public safety in the city, and also to heal and mend the relationships that have been frayed and broken in the city," Brunson said. 

Earlier this month, the Fire and Police Commission put out a call for people to apply for the permanent position of chief. The deadline for those applications is September 11.
