Faith, advocacy groups seek independent review of Milwaukee PD

Recently, an array of faith-based, civil rights and other advocacy organizations announced they are seeking an independent review of the Milwaukee Police Department's policing practices.

Lawsuit regarding police stops brought against Milwaukee

A police stop is when a police officer stops a person to investigate potential criminal activity. Sometimes, frisks or other searches come out of such stops.

A recent class-action lawsuit alleges that police in Milwaukee have crossed the line when it comes to their use of police stops.

Sometimes, faulty DNA testing strikes in criminal cases

What is the 'Len Bias law'?

Being accused of distributing drugs here in Wisconsin can expose a person to all kinds of serious consequences.
