Results of external La Crosse PD investigation expected soon

Results from an external investigation into the La Crosse Police Department  will soon be made public.

News 8 has been checking back repeatedly over the last month to see when those results will be released.

Back in October, Mayor Tim Kabat’s office called for an investigation into the department after Officer Nathan Poke came to the mayor with concerns about the workplace environment and retaliation within the department.

To avoid conflicts, the mayor called on the chief of the Green Bay Police department to conduct the investigation.

Now that the mayor has reviewed the findings and every person in the report was notified, details in the report will be released.  

However, because of something called the “Woznicki” law, it takes 12 business days after the last person in the report was notified for the findings to be made public. That date will be Decemeber 21st.
