Milwaukee Police Terminate Officer Dominique Heaggan-Brown as Result of Internal Affairs Investigation
The Milwaukee Police Department has terminated Police Officer Dominique Heaggan-Brown’s employment effective Monday, October 31st, 2016.
The termination is the result of a Milwaukee Police Department Internal Affairs investigation related to the criminal complaint filed against him on Thursday, October 20th.
The investigation found Heaggan-Brown to be in violation of the Milwaukee Police Code of Conduct, Core Value- Integrity that states “Department members shall obey local ordinances and state and federal laws, whether on or off-duty” and “Whether on or off duty, department members shall not behave in such a way that a reasonable person would expect that discredit could be brought upon the department, or that it would create the appearance of impropriety or corruptive behavior.”
Milwaukee Police Officer Dominique Heaggan-Brown was bound over for trial on sexual assault charges on October 27.
Heaggan-Brown wore a suicide-prevention gown at his preliminary hearing.
He has the officer who shot and killed Sylville Smith back in August, an incident that preceded two nights of unrest in Sherman Park.
This hearing was not related to that incident. The officer is accused of sexually assaulting two men.
