Special Investigations Unit Notifications Meeting

Episode first aired on 10/12/2012

The Madison Police Dept's Special Investigations Unit along with the Community Against Violence Team will conduct a "Notification Call-In Meeting." As part of the Department's Focused Deterrence program, The Madison Police Department's SIU and the Community Against Violence Team will meet with repeat, violent offenders from our community. At this meeting a Law Enforcement Panel will address the offenders and notify them that they will be receiving special attention due to their violent histories. A Community Team working in conjunction with Untied Way and Madison Urban Ministry will also address the offenders and offer them the opportunity to receive resources to help them with life challenges such as housing, dependency treatment, and education. The message from both panels will be the same - "We care about you but your violence must stop."
