Milwaukee Police Department Receives Certificate from Country of Montenegro for Partnership
Did you know that the Milwaukee Police Department has a partnership with the state department in Washington?
Through that partnership, MPD provides training in police techniques to law enforcement departments from other parts of the world.
On Friday, a group from the western European country of Montenegro presented a certificate to Milwaukee Police.
They have been here three times for workshops.
Chief Ed Flynn said that training is good for his department as well.
"One of the best ways to learn is to teach. And obviously the time we spend teaching other agencies is time we spend learning actually more about ourselves as well as learning the things we do in fact have to offer other agencies,” said Flynn.
Police from Egypt, Norway, Panama, Iraq and even other American cities have to Milwaukee to learn from the police.
