MPD will continue to support MPS and MPS students

The Milwaukee Police Department fully supports the Milwaukee Public School system if it decides to remove all School Resource Officers from its schools. We agree with the many voices from our community who believe that the funding should be reinvested into our public school system to support social services.

Common Council Removes Democratic National Convention Protective Equipment Bids

The Milwaukee Police Department has been working diligently over the past fifteen months to provide a safe and secure event for the Democratic National Convention. MPD was notified this afternoon that the bid requests for key safety equipment necessary for the Democratic National Convention has been removed by the Purchasing Department due to pressures by members of the Common Council without any input from the Secret Service, Milwaukee Police Department or any other law enforcement agency.

The bids to be submitted by the City of Milwaukee Purchasing Department were requested by the Milwaukee Police Department in February and March 2020. MPD had no role in the timing of the bids being released and the requests are in no way a response to the recent incidents that have occurred both locally and nationally.

The Democratic National Convention and the thousands of participants visiting Milwaukee deserve a safe and successful event, which requires certain protective and tactical equipment. It is a standard request for most, if not all, law enforcement agencies called upon to provide security at a national security special event. The personal protective equipment and other devices that have been denied because of the Common Council are used to protect the community against armed suspects, hostage situations and active shooters.

For the protection of the Democratic National Convention, the thousands of participants and the residents of the City of Milwaukee, the Milwaukee Police Department asks that the Common Council reconsider this course of action.

The Milwaukee Police Department never forgets those members who paid the ultimate price in service to the community. Today, we honor Acting-Detective Charles George, who was shot and killed in the line of duty on June 8, 1936.

Acting-Detective Charles George was shot and killed while attempting to apprehend a burglary suspect in the 1700 block of N. 4th Street. The suspect was seen by a police officer earlier in the night jumping out of a window with a cash box at a filling station in the 2900 block of W. Fond du lac Avenue. The officer gave chase but was outdistanced. Upon returning to the filling station to investigate, the officer noticed a car parked nearby and called headquarters to report the license plate.

Acting-Detective Charles George and his partner were assigned the case. They looked up the owner of the car and went to the St. Paul Ave. address listed to investigate. The suspect was not home so they hid under the porch and waited. About an hour later the suspect came home. They attempted to arrest him but he was again able to sprint away. George’s partner recognized the man as someone he had seen coming out of a home on Fourth Street.

It was after 3 a.m. and half an hour after quitting time, but George was not ready to give up. They went to the Fourth Street address. The women in the home denied that anyone else was in the house. When the officers walked through, they found another man asleep in a bedroom. His presence aroused their suspicion and they renewed their questioning of the women. Finally, one woman admitted the man was hiding in the house.

As George opened the front room closet door, a shot rang out and the bullet penetrated his heart. George fell backwards into his partners arms as another shot rang out. The suspect’s body tumbled out of the closet. Both men died at the scene.

George was 38 years old and had been with the department for 6 years. Before coming to Milwaukee he was Chief of Police in Rice Lake, WI. He left behind a wife, Agnes and son Donald, 14.

We remember.
