Recommendation 44

The FPC should create a new position of independent police auditor.

Recommendation 44.1

The FPC should create a new position of independent police auditor.


Milwaukee Code of Ordinances Chapter 314 establishes the FPC Executive Director as the Independent Monitor on citizen complaints. 


If an independent police auditor were to be considered it would be best served as a staff member of the FPC.  This position could audit MPD grants, budget, overtime, Internal Affairs, the EIP process and work in conjunction with a risk management team.

Improved public confidence that all complaints both will be fully investigated and appropriate discipline provided in a transparent process.

Increase the capacity/resources and enhance the role of the Milwaukee Fire and Police Commission to investigate and act upon the complaints of residents. This means more staff to investigate complaints, more office space within which complaints can be heard, and office space that is centralized rather than disjointed.
