After an MPD officer was shot early Sunday near 17th and Morgan on Milwaukee's south side, the agency ordered all squad cars to carry two officers instead of one, at least for the time being. The Milwaukee Police Association said Monday that it has been advocating for two-officer squads for seven years and is now demanding they be made permanent. According to a release from MPA President Mike Crivello, "officers must know they are supported…not solely in words, but actions."
