MPD Statement on Commission Report on Darius Simmons Investigation

The Milwaukee Fire & Police Commission issued a report on the Milwaukee Police Department investigation into the homicide of Darius Simmons. Here is a link to that report:

Following is a statement from MPD regarding the investigation:
“The Milwaukee Police Department hears the community’s concerns over the procedures used during the investigation of the homicide of Darius Simmons. We recognize that sometimes professional duty can appear to trump compassion, and that even though investigators were doing justice to the victim, they were not as attentive to the needs of Darius’ mother as they could have been. Police officers and detectives are proud to protect an extraordinarily diverse city. Our homicide detectives have an unmatched record of success in solving the murders of victims from every segment of our community. The members of the Milwaukee Police department remain committed to excellence and to continual improvement and accept the findings of the Fire and Police Commission in that spirit.”
