Members of the Milwaukee Police Department on Thursday updated city leaders on the progress of recovering lost interrogation videos. A handful were destroyed when one of the department’s computers crashed in January.
Members of the police department spoke to the Common Council’s Public Safety committee. IT Director Chuck Burke described what happened the day of the computer crash.
“We had two disk drive failures, which was recoverable. In the process of the system recovering those failed drives, a third one failed, making the system inoperable,” Burke says.
