Program

The Milwaukee Police Department’s Police Ambassador Program was created by Mayor Tom Barrett and Police Chief Edward Flynn.

The Milwaukee Police Department and Employ Milwaukee provide meaningful work assignments for the Ambassadors over the course of the program and pair them with mentors who are experienced members of the Police Department.  Mentors provide guidance and support for the duration of the program to help Ambassadors achieve their professional goals while also building relationships with other members of the Department.
