Resignation of Officer Joseph Mensah
On 11/17/20, The Wauwatosa Common Council met and accepted a separation agreement between Officer Joseph Mensah, his attorneys, the Wauwatosa Peace Officers Association and the City of Wauwatosa. As part of the agreement, any pending cases with the Wauwatosa Police and Fire Commission were dismissed and his suspension was lifted. Officer Mensah’s resignation will be effective November 30, 2020, and he will resign in good standing with the Wauwatosa Police Departments. Officer Mensah has been a member of this department for the past five years and will be missed. We wish him the best in his future endeavors.
This has been a very challenging year for the police department and for the Wauwatosa community as a whole. Despite any challenges we have encountered, we have 94 sworn officers who have been out serving the community every day. Out commitment to server and protect the citizens of Wauwatosa has not waivered and we will continue to do so with the same dedication and professionalism that is expected of us.
