DCI Announces Anonymous Tip Line for Information Related to Milwaukee Unrest
DOJ asks the public only submit tips based on facts, and not speculation or heresy.
MADISON, WI – Today, the Wisconsin Department of Justice (DOJ) Division of Criminal Investigations (DCI) announced an anonymous tip line is available for anyone with information related to the officer involved shooting that occurred in Milwaukee’s Sherman Park neighborhood on August 13, 2016.
“It is my goal to complete officer involved death investigations expeditiously so the community gets the answers they deserve,” said Attorney General Brad Schimel. “DCI is still in the early investigative stages of the officer involved death that took place only five days ago. We need community members to come forward with any tips and information that may be helpful so we can continue to determine the facts of this case and turn over investigative reports to the Milwaukee County District Attorney’s Office, who will ultimately make a charging decision.”
DOJ asks the public only submit tips based on facts, and not speculation or heresy. If you know something about the officer involved shooting, or any events leading up to or that may have occurred afterwards, please go to https://www.doj.state.wi.us/webform/submit-anonymous-tip-online or find the form on the DOJ website home page.
