Milwaukee Ald. Lewis: Statement on traffic enforcement partnership

With the Milwaukee Police Department rolling out its partnership with the Milwaukee County Sheriff’s Department and Wisconsin State Patrol, I am optimistic we can fight the scourge of reckless and irresponsible driving. I have no doubt this traffic enforcement initiative will work as we have already seen glimpses of its success. A previous MPD traffic enforcement surge yielded 400 tickets in just one day in my district. With the amount of overtime needed we could not sustain this alone, so I applaud Chief Morales for coming up with a strategic plan to help maintain order on our streets and ensure everyone can reach their destination safely.
