DOJ Accepting Police Abuse
U.S. Civil Rights Division Now Accepting Tips from Milwaukee Citizens About MPD
Residents who believe Milwaukee Police officers have violated their rights now have an outlet for their concerns, with the announcement by U.S. Attorney James Santelle that the Civil Rights Division of the U.S. Department of Justice has set up a toll-free tip line and email address. The information gathered through these sources will be used to help determine whether Mr. Santelle and the Civil Rights Division should conduct a formal “pattern and practice” investigation of the Milwaukee Police Department.
Anyone interested in providing information can contact the Department of Justice by calling 1-855-544-5132 or via email at firstname.lastname@example.org. The recorded phone message is in both English and Spanish.
