Background: Milwaukee Public Schools and the Milwaukee Police Department have been collaborating since 2005 to provide a police presence at high schools between 3:00-4:30pm. Based on the success of this arrangement, the Administration recommends continuation of this model. Due to many safety concerns, Milwaukee Police are requested to provide dedicated patrol and presence at school related events ranging from dismissal, social/sports events, outsiders gathering, etc.

The Administration will determine when to start service during each semester in order to be proactive relative to the safety of students and staff. The Milwaukee Police Department will furnish fully-marked police squads with uniformed officers to patrol each of the areas surrounding the identified schools, or inside the school as determined. Marked MPD squads shall patrol the defined areas during the hours designated and agreed upon between MPS and MPD.
Fiscal Impact Statement: This item authorizes expenditures up to $60,000. Funds for this expenditure are budgeted in account OGA-0-0-SST-DW-ECTS (School Safety-Contracted Services).
Implementation and Assessment Plan Upon approval by the Board, the Administration will execute the Intergovernmental Agreement with the City of Milwaukee.
Recommendation: The Administration recommends that the Board approve the Intergovernmental Agreement with the City of Milwaukee for the Milwaukee Police Department to provide law enforcement services to the Milwaukee Public Schools during the 2018-2019 school year as outlined in the attachment.
