Milwaukee Police Listening Session to Take Place Friday
Tonight local youth will share stories about their interactions with Milwaukee Police Officers.
In an interview with CBS 58, Police Chief Ed Flynn says he’s ready to listen, and hopes that people from all walks are heard from as he is eager to bring about any reforms necessary, and do so in a transparent way.
Tonight’s meeting is being held by the Coalition for Justice. The group is encouraging young people to attend and speak out about their interactions with the Milwaukee Police. Chief Flynn says he is always willing to listen to the community, and references his weekly police talks in every district. He does, however, believe this event specifically may be partially biased due to the group organizing it.
Chief Flynn will not be in attendance at this listening session, but he will get feedback from the meeting
The event is being held Friday night at the Wisconsin Black Historical Society and begins at 5:30.
