Some Milwaukee aldermen are criticizing Police Chief Edward Flynn, after a draft report about his department became public.

The federal report, obtained by the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel, accuses the department of inconsistencies in officer discipline, as well as failures in communication.

The Milwaukee Police Department should reconsider is pursuit policy, according to the majority of Common Council members. On Friday, the Public Safety Committee will discuss the issue – when should officers chase a car, and when should they let it go. Some lawmakers are concerned about a growing level of lawlessness on Milwaukee’s streets.
