7/2/20200 FPC POLICIES AND STANDARDS COMMITTEE REFERRED TO

Minutes note: At the last Fire and Police Commission Policies and Standards Committee meeting in May 28, 2020, the president of the Milwaukee Police Association had sent a letter to the Board regarding concerns and objections to this Standard Operating Procedure. The Chair asked the Milwaukee Police Department whether they had cleared the objection with the Union and report back to the Committee as requested. Assistant Chief Regina Howard brought forward as what was stated at the last Policies and Standards Committee that she had provided the original meet and confer letter with the Milwaukee Police Association was on February 15, 2019. The Milwaukee Police Department had formally met with the president at that time of the Milwaukee Police Association and the City Attorney on April 25, 2019. In addition, Inspector Gordon had an additional conversation with the Union president in September of 2019 prior to the policy being sent to the Fire and Police Commission. The Milwaukee Police Department had met their requirement for the meet and confer with the Union. The Chair reiterated that he had requested specifically that because the Board had received a letter from the union with the date after September 2019 that Assistant Chief Regina Howard or someone from the Milwaukee Police Department would make an effort to meet with the Union. The Chair questioned to the Milwaukee Police Department whether a meeting had occurred from the last Policies and Standards meeting to the day of this meeting. Again, Assistant Chief Regina Howard states she did not do a second meet and confer with the Union. She sent the email as requested by the Milwaukee Police Association so that she could confirm and show that they met the meet and confer obligation. That is what the Milwaukee Police Association had requested. The head of the Milwaukee Police Association has changed since the time they had originally had done the meet and confer and during the time that this Standard Operating Procedure had came up again. The Milwaukee Police Department did provide the Milwaukee Police Association with the information that they had requested and she had a conversation with the president of the Milwaukee Police Association regarding the meet and confer requirement. Commissioner Angela McKenzie then reiterated her understanding from the last meeting that as the commissioners of this committee had requested the Milwaukee Police Department for a second meet and confer meeting with the Union. She still asks that a meeting occur because the new president of the Milwaukee Police Association has objections and the commissioners wanted that to be clarified with the present staff. Assistant Chief Regina Howard confirmed that the Milwaukee Police Department (MPD) will do a second meet and confer with the Milwaukee Police Association regarding this Standard Operating Procedure. The Chair once again reiterates the Committee's request to the Milwaukee Police Department (MPD) for a meeting to occur by the next Polices and Standards Committee meeting scheduled for July 30, 2020.

5/28/20200 FPC POLICIES AND STANDARDS COMMITTEE REFERRED TO

Minutes note: Commissioner Everett Cocroft specifically requested the following change regarding Standard Operating Procedure 453 Officer Involved Death and Other Critical Incidents. He would like to amend SOP453.120 Section E. to "concurrent" and strike out too "immediately following". He would like the process for Internal Affairs to be parallel along with the criminal investigation. The Fire and Police Commission Board received a letter dated May 18, 2020 from Dale Bormann, President of the Milwaukee Police Association. In the letter, President Bormann expressed several concerns regarding the Milwaukee Police Department's process regarding this Standard Operating Procedure 453 for this meeting on May 28, 2020. The Chair made the decision to not propose an action or take any questions on this item until he has an opportunity to confer and clarify with the Union and the Milwaukee Police Department as to what the process is. He also would like to have an insight regarding the meetings so that he can have a clear timeline.
