Background: In October 2016, Milwaukee Public Schools launched the MPS C.A.R.E.S. (Community And Recreation Engaging Students) initiative to provide safe spaces for young people and community access to resources. This multipronged approach includes a Midnight Sports League to engage young adults in the City of Milwaukee who are at risk for participating in or being victims of crime. Initial Midnight League programming consists of a basketball league for young men ages 18-25, which includes connections to appropriate health care, workforce, and educational services.

Longstanding and new partnerships have evolved as a result of this programming. Specifically, the City of Milwaukee, through the Milwaukee Police Department (MPD), has stepped forward to provide ancillary support services to ensure the success of these programming efforts. In order to fully execute this work, the Administration requests approval of the intergovernmental agreement between Milwaukee Public Schools and the City of Milwaukee for the Milwaukee Police Department to provide patrol services and program enrichment for the MPS C.A.R.E.S. Midnight Sports League. Specifically, MPD will provide two police officers each program night to provide additional support to the district’s onsite staff.
Fiscal Impact Statement: This item authorizes expenditures. The cost to implement this model per year is not to exceed $40,100. The funds are in RAS-0-0-MCC-RC-ECTS (Extension Fund Contracted Services).
Implementation and Assessment Plan
Recommendation: The Administration recommends that the Board approve the Intergovernmental Agreement with the City of Milwaukee for the Milwaukee Police Department to provide patrol services and program enrichment to the 2017-18 Midnight League program as presented in the attachments to this item.
