   3. Update on CCC and MPD co-creation of the Community-Oriented Policing SOP and vote on proposed changes.

Minutes note: Mr. Jamaal Smith said the only change that the CCC subgroup made was in the policy area in the beginning by adding some text to ensure all of the MPD functions will be centered around community partnership. Mr. Royal wanted "encouraged" stricken from establishing community partnerships so that these partnerships are required, not solely encouraged. Working on the COP SOP is the residual work from the Community Collaborative Committee and the original COP SOP was written without input from the Committee. Mr. Baack commended members who are working on this project and he sees the result of considerable work and effort. Mr. Royal would like to add a section 3.16 which would result in community members being appointed to the MPD Use of Force Committee to sit on their quarterly meetings. If MPD did not support this change, he was told the Fire and Police Commission had the authority to decide if 3.16 would be created as part of the SOP. He thinks the CCC would select which community person would select or endorse an individual. Mr. Jansen said the CCC position is that it shouldn't matter who the police chief is, that there should be a community member on the Use of Force Committee. The CCC Subgroup will follow up on this moving forward. Mr. Royal said there are two standing members and other members appointed by the chief to serve one-year terms. Mr. Royal noted that the Collins settlement expires in 5 years so adding a report required by the agreement would be a little awkward to add to the COP SOP. Mr. Smith moved to approve the changes, seconded by Mr. Royal. There were no objections.

   5. Creation of other positions, including, but not limited to treasurer or secretary and duties of these positions.

Minutes note: The chair hasn't talked to any members about these positions; if members are interested in either position they should e-mail the chair. This item will be on the next agenda. Mr. Royal moved, seconded by Ms. Malone to move this item to the next agenda. There were no objections.

   5. Institute a budget for the Commission based upon 2021 funding ($50,000).

Minutes note: Chair Hamilton will be reaching out to the Committees to see what their budgetary needs are. Community Survey and Outreach will probably use most of those funds. Mr. Royal said part of the SOP is to create a Community Engagement Document, modeled after Baltimore's, so some outreach money will be needed for that as well. The $50,000 will be funded through the City Clerk's Office. Mr. Royal moved, seconded by Mr. Baack, to move this item to the next agenda.

   7. Discussion relating to the police chief hiring situation.

Minutes note: Chair Hamilton said that a number of Council members, through a media release, asked that the hiring of a police chief be put on hold until the FPC and FPC staff. Mr. Royal doesn't think that the process has been formally suspended. Mr. Baack agrees to that as well. Mr. Royal said there is another town hall meeting on Friday. Mr. Baack also noted that the fact that the former chief was not given due process that this might make a difference. Chair Hamilton said that as of now the CCC works with the acting chief and will establish a relationship with the new chief.

   8. Discussion relating to the top 5 questions to survey the community on (possible 4 are): 1. Do you feel safe in Milwaukee? 2. Do you feel the relationship with the Milwaukee Police Department (MPD) is positive? 3. Do you feel the MPD needs to improve its relationship with the community? (Much Change, Moderate Change, No Change, Unsure) 4. What type of change is most important to you? (Policy and Procedure, Better community feedback, Community outreach, No change, Something else)

Minutes note: Mr. Royal would like to have the questions need to be neutral. Mr. Jansen moved to hold this item to the next meeting and members are free to e-mail him about possible questions and the structure of questions. The idea is that it would be a small, postcard survey with 5 questions for an efficient, easy response, seconded by Mr. Royal. There were no objections. Ms. Blanks thought the Survey Committee should come to a consensus and then bring it to the entire Commission so the Committee feels ownership. Mr. Jansen said he and Ms. Malone created these specific questions with the hopes of getting input. Mr. Royal moved that the Research Committee should take these questions bring back their vetted questions to the entire Commission, seconded by Mr. Jansen. There were no objections.
