Chief Flynn’s Statement on Judge Franke’s Decision

Regarding the special prosecutor’s decision not to file charges in connection with the death of Derek Williams, Milwaukee Police Chief Edward A. Flynn issued the following statement:

“I have learned of Judge Franke’s decision to not file charges in connection with the death of Derek Williams. The Milwaukee Police Department cooperated fully with the inquest process and members of our Internal Affairs Division observed the inquest proceedings. No new information was brought to light that would lead us to reopen our original internal investigation. Based on this fact, the officers will soon be returned to full-duty status. The Milwaukee Police Department is committed to the protection of the community and to restoring the trust of those whose confidence was shaken by these events.”
