NOW: Milwaukee’s FPC interviews Acting Chief Jeffrey Norman for permanent role

MILWAUKEE (CBS 58) -- Acting Milwaukee Police Chief Jeffrey Norman could be one step closer to officially being named Milwaukee's top cop.

The city's Fire and Police Commission interviewed him Thursday night, Oct. 7.

Norman says complying with the Collins Settlement Agreement is one of his top priorities.

"I'm very committed to constitutional policing in our city," he said.

A recent report found the department continues to stop and frisk people without reasonable suspicion, three years after the agreement was signed.

The president of the Milwaukee branch of the NAACP says the organization firmly supports the hiring of Acting Chief Norman.

"Even his record since he's been acting police chief, and you see there have been improvements made," said NAACP President Clarence Nicholas. "But if he has more authority, per se, I think we could even do better."

Norman is the only candidate at this time.

A final vote on his potential promotion could come Nov. 4.
