The Milwaukee Police Department implements changes for improved police reform
On Thursday, December 10, 2020, the Fire and Police Commission approved updates to the Milwaukee Police Department’s Use of Force Standard Operating Procedure (SOP 460). These changes reflect months of positive discussions, debates and consideration of how the Milwaukee Police Department can enact police reforms consistent with our community’s expectations.
Notably, the Milwaukee Police Department can proudly claim its Use of Force policy is now consistent with the nationally recognized “8 Can’t Wait” campaign. We are grateful for the community’s feedback and remain a committed partner to making real and long-lasting improvements.
