Community informational meetings on the draft Public Safety Action Plan should be held in each of Milwaukee’s seven police districts, Alderman Bob Donovan said today.

Alderman Donovan, chair of the Public Safety Committee, said he believes it’s best for as many people across the city as possible to address the plan and provide input.

“We need a diverse array of residents from across Milwaukee to tell us what they are concerned about, and I believe holding public informational meetings in each police district will allow for that wider breadth of input and participation,” Alderman Donovan said.

“We are best served, in my opinion, by bringing these meetings out to the people and allowing residents in every area of the city to describe the public safety challenges they are facing in their specific neighborhood,” he said. “I’m hoping my colleagues agree.”

The Common Council has not yet finalized plans for the public informational meetings on the draft Public Safety Action Plan.
