Untitled design (13)

A team of assessors from the Wisconsin Law Enforcement Accreditation Group (WILEAG), will arrive on 10/17/2017 to examine all aspects of the Milton Police Department’s policy and procedures, management, operation, and support service.

Verification by the team that the Milton Police Department meets the Board’s state-of-the-art standards is part of a voluntary process to gain accreditation - a highly prized recognition of law enforcement professional excellence.

As part of the on-site assessment, agency employees and members of the community are invited to offer comments at a public information session 10/18/17 at 5 p.m.  The session will be conducted in the City Council Chambers located at 710 S. Janesville St., Milton.

If for some reason an individual cannot speak at the public information session but would still like to provide comments to the assessment team, he/she may do so by telephone.  The public may call 608-868-6910 x233 on 10/18/2017 between the hours of 1 p.m. and 3 p.m.

Telephone comments as well as appearances at the public information session are limited to 10 minutes and must address the agency’s ability to comply with WILEAG’s standards.  A copy of the standards is available at the City of Milton Police Department, 690 S Janesville St., Milton. The Department contact for further information is Detective Ryan Justice, 608-868-6910.

Persons wishing to offer written comments about the Milton Police Department’s ability to meet the standards for accreditation are requested to write to Wisconsin Law Enforcement Accreditation Group, WILEAG at WILEAG at P.O. Box 528, Hartland, WI 53029.

Accreditation status is granted for three years, during which time the agency must submit annual reports attesting continued compliance with those standards under which it was initially accredited.

For more information regarding the Wisconsin Law Enforcement Accreditation Group, please write to WILEAG at P.O. Box 528, Hartland, WI 53029 or executive.director@wileag.info.
