Stop and Search Data Posted

Per the requirements in the settlement to Federal Case 17-CV-234-JPS the Milwaukee Fire and Police Commission (FPC) is required to publish particular stop and search encounter data, on a quarterly basis, in compliance with Sec. IV(A)(10-13). Data is suitable for posting only after the Personally Identifiable Information (PII) gathered from each encounter has been removed. Due to ongoing technical issues, only a portion of the quarterly data is currently available in a form that excludes PII and that can be acceptably disseminated to the public. As technical challenges are solved the FPC anticipates that future data will allow for additional data elements to be included in the publicly posted data sets.

Posted data is available on the Milwaukee Open Data Portal
