MPD Seeking Community Input on Policing
The Madison Police Department is in the process of setting a long-range strategic plan. MPD has enlisted the Matrix Consulting Group to assist in developing the plan, which covers 5-7 years. MPD is seeking community input throughout this process. One method of doing this is through virtual community focus group meetings facilitated by our outside consultants. These meetings will provide opportunities for community members to provide input on MPD's long-range strategic plan.
Each one of MPD's six patrol districts will host a meeting. The meeting will cover broad themes on topics such as community trust, the role of police, community policing, crime and safety, and police staffing.
Below is a list of dates and times for each district's meeting:
North District: April 4, 6:30 - 8 p.m.
East District: April 5, 6:30 - 8 p.m.
Central District: April 7, 6:30 - 8 p.m.
