Milwaukee Area Investigative Team (MAIT)
Officer-Involved Critical Incidents
Wisconsin Statute § 175.47 requires that, in the event of the death of an individual as the result of an action or inaction by a law enforcement officer, the ensuing investigation must be conducted by an investigative team from an independent agency.
When the Milwaukee Area Investigative Team (MAIT) is called, one of the following agencies will serve as the independent lead agency: Milwaukee Police Department, West Allis Police Department, Wauwatosa Police Department, Greenfield Police Department, Oak Creek Police Department, or Waukesha Police Department
The lead investigative agency for MAIT will provide a complete report to the prosecutor for review. If the prosecutor determines there is no basis for the prosecution of the law enforcement officer, the documents will be posted as required by § 175.47(5)(b) to the MAIT Reports link.
The related investigative file and associated evidence will be made available to the public by the lead agency, in a redacted format, under the Wisconsin Public Records Law (Wis. Stat. §§ 19.31-19.39).
