Nearly 100% of Milwaukee police officers who participated in a union vote signaled they have no confidence in Police Chief Edward Flynn, the police union announced Friday.
Two dozen officers gathered in the City Hall rotunda Friday morning to reveal the results of the nonbinding vote, which union leaders said they hoped would get the attention of Mayor Tom Barrett, the Common Council and the city’s Fire and Police Commission.
After his office was presented with the results, Barrett quickly released a statement saying he has “complete confidence in (Flynn) and the hardworking members of the rank and file.”
The union said 99.3% of members who voted chose no-confidence in Flynn. The union did not disclose the total number of members who voted but indicated it was a higher than average turnout.
