La Crosse County CMJC approves resolution to study independent police oversight committee

LA CROSSE, Wis. (WKBT)- The possibility of a new La Crosse County independent police oversight committee takes another step forward.

Before a formal committee can be created, the county’s criminal justice management council says it must consider additional study and coordination between stakeholders. On Wednesday, October 20th. the council approved a resolution to form a committee to study the possibility of a civilian oversight board.

The actual name of the board, its purpose, and scope will all be part of the study. The study’s findings will eventually be presented to the full county board for approval.
