Overview of the Study
The City of Madison Madison Police Department Policy and Procedure Review is an outgrowth of the work and recommendations of the MPD Ad Hoc Review Committee, which is itself a body of volunteers and residents appointed by the City to address issues of concern regarding police-community relations.
The committee was also tasked by the Mayor and City Council to participate in the process of hiring experts to conduct a comprehensive outside review of MPD as a constructive means of identifying strengths and areas of potential improvement. The City Council agreed and authorized the review.
Throughout 2017, OIR Group will perform a multi-faceted review of MPD that will culminate in a public report of findings and recommendations.
