Milwaukee Cops Now Required To Stop Excessive Force

October 30, 2012  | 

Milwaukee police officers would be required to intervene if they see one of their colleagues using excessive force, according to a new policy expected to be approved by the city's Fire and Police Commission this week.

The policy also broadens the department's definition of force to include situations in which police take a suspect to the ground in an attempt to handcuff or otherwise subdue him or her.
