Milwaukee Common Council hears update on DOJ probe into police department

MILWAUKEE (CBS 58) -- The Milwaukee Common Coul received an update on the Justice Department's probe into the police department.

A draft report outlines more than 100 recommendations to improve practices within the department.

Aldermen say they'd like to see residents involved in the discussion about what needs to be done.

Police Chief Ed Flynn was there and he says he's looking forward to working with the community but criticized what he says is in the report.

"The DOJ hired a consulting firm. The DOJ didn't make any observations in the initial draft. Their paid consultants did. Consultants staff stocked the draft report with anonymous anecdotes unsupported by any data," said Milwaukee Police Chief Ed Flynn.

The DOJ has said the draft came from the last administration and there's currently no word when a final report will be released.
