Making a tough job even harder
Patrick at Badger Blogger reports that there may have been more trouble with the Milwaukee Police Department’s communications system on Christmas Eve. This time it was the phone system (more info in the comments section).
Good thing there wasn’t a car accident near the Hoan Bridge or anything that might have required the involvement of the Milwaukee Police Department. (Second item.)
In all seriousness, Milwaukee’s police department needs to get their communications act together. I think it would be very interesting for the Fire and Police Commission to literally map the entire process from when a phone call is made to the police to the dispatch in the field, and all the potential bottlenecks and system failures along the way.
It’ll be interesting if this becomes an issue in the Milwaukee mayoral race.
