Quality Policing Initiative unveiled in Milwaukee, audit for MPD requested

LULAC is part of nearly two dozen community organizations that have formed a coalition and unveiled a plan Tuesday for what they call quality policing.


It comes after recent demonstrations against Milwaukee Police Chief Ed Flynn over the rewording of the department's policy when it comes to local cooperation with federal immigration agents.

The group insists that the initiative is now collaborative and they want all members of the community involved, including police.

Among the key provisions:

Support the Fire and Police Commission and its efforts to manage and regulate public safety departments with transparency and accountability.

Calling for a consistent adherence to the Fire and Police Commission.

The release of the collaborative reform document drafted by US Department of Justice.

Independent audit of Milwaukee Police Department to assess its effectiveness based on problem oriented policing practices.

Requests Fire and Police Commission begin reviewing the modifications to standard operating procedures that were drafted with input from citizens, coalition members and police officers.
