Ald. Bob Donovan
Press Release

Thank you, Mike Crivello, for your dedicated service to Milwaukee

Statement from Alderman Bob Donovan - November 15, 2018

By - Nov 15th, 2018 10:05 am

With the announcement that he will be retiring from the Milwaukee Police Department, I want to publicly recognize and thank Mike Crivello for his service as a police officer and for his leadership as President of the Milwaukee Police Association.

In my years as an alderman I have worked with three heads of the Milwaukee Police
Association: Brad DeBraska, John Balcerzak and Mike Crivello. I got along well with all three but I worked most closely with Mike and he became a good friend.

I want to thank Mike for his commitment to Milwaukee and to his fellow police officers. He always exuded integrity, honesty and a sense of fair play, and if you were an officer in need of support, advice, and counsel, Mike was 110% in your corner and you welcomed his presence.

I wish Mike well in his future work with the International Police Association and I hope for nothing but the best for Mike and his wife and family in the future. Mike will be sorely missed back home in Milwaukee.
