The Milwaukee Police Department hosted leadership from the St. Louis and Chicago Police Departments and US Attorney’s Office from Chicago on Wednesday, January 18th, 2017. Those in attendance are part of the Federal Violence Reduction Network of which MPD is a member. Milwaukee Police Leaders also visit partner agencies in the Violence Reduction Network to gain additional insight and strategies to reduce violent crime in Milwaukee.
During their time in Milwaukee, the delegates learned about MPD’s Crime Gun Intelligence Center, Project Safe Neighborhood, and attended a Compstat meeting focusing on violent crime. Partnerships like this add collaboration and an exchange of information and ideas to help create a safer Milwaukee.
