Incident Report for Case #2015-71913

Incident Type


Incident Date

03/06/2015 - 6:30 PM


1100 Blk Williamson Street


This afternoon, District Attorney Ismael Ozanne provided his 48 hour notice regarding the Tony Robinson officer involved shooting investigation. In doing so, DA Ozanne has indicated he will deliver his findings this Tuesday.


The Madison Police Department has been diligently preparing for this announcement for several weeks. Our contingency planning has involved both logistics and multiple meetings with community leaders. It is our hope - that working together - Madison can come through these challenging days ahead without violence or property damage.


It is quite possible that there will be civil dissent, and the men and women of the MPD will - as they have done in the past - help facilitate the safe movement of people should they decide to exercise First Amendment rights.


 It is our belief that Madison can endure without being fractured.
