Marquette University News Release

Chief of Police Ed Flynn goes “On the Issues” to discuss crime statistics, trends and tactics in Milwaukee

January 21, 2014

Event Information:
Date: Tuesday, Jan. 28, 2014
Time: 12:15 – 1:15 p.m.
Place: Marquette Law School, Eckstein Hall

Milwaukee Chief of Police Ed Flynn will discuss the city’s current crime trends and his department’s latest crime-prevention tactics in an upcoming “On the Issues with Mike Gousha,” Tuesday, Jan. 28, from 12:15 to 1:15 p.m. at Marquette Law School’s Eckstein Hall, 1215 W. Michigan St.

Was a spike in homicides in 2013 an aberration, or a sign of things to come? Now in his second term, Chief Flynn will discuss the department’s data-driven approach to fighting crime, police-community relations and how Milwaukee is doing compared to other cities.

Flynn commands an agency of 2,000 sworn officers and 700 civilians. Before coming to Milwaukee in January 2008, he served as the police commissioner in Springfield, Mass., the secretary of public safety under then-Mass. Gov. Mitt Romney and the police chief in Arlington, Va.

Seating is limited; registration is available online. For those who can’t attend in person, all “On the Issues” events are streamed live online at the following website, which also contains a catalog of past guests.

Gousha, an award-winning television journalist, is a Distinguished Fellow in Law and Public Policy. His “On the Issues” series of conversations with newsmakers supports Marquette Law School’s commitment to serve as a modern-day public square for the city of Milwaukee, the state of Wisconsin and beyond.

Through the Marquette Law School Poll, debates featuring candidates in significant political races, public lectures by leading scholars and topical conferences — all open to the community – the Law School serves as a venue for serious civil discourse about law and public policy matters.
