MILWAUKEE — The Collaborative Community Commission is made of a group of people working together to build the relationships between the community and the Milwaukee Police Department.

On Monday, the CCC announced they are continuing to work with MPD to come up with a new vision and definition of what community policing should look like.

The CCC has multiple members who work in different organizations within the community, representing Latinos, the Jewish Community, LGBTQ, and the Black community

The goal is to remold the department and create changes to policies and procedures within MPD.

"This policy will be great for new interaction that we want to see with law enforcement and community members that will not only enhance trust but reduce a level of fear around police officers and the community," said Nate Hamilton, Chairman of the CC.

"I think this is a unique approach because this has not been done in the past with the Milwaukee Police Department in terms of having this type of conversation," said Assistant Chief Jeffrey Norman.

The new vision on community policing is in its early stages but members of the CCC are hoping other community members will get involved so everyone's voice is heard.
