More than 150 Milwaukee residents showed up to a public listening session held at Rufus King High School to hear how the city plans to tackle reckless driving and carjackings and offer their own solutions.
The event was hosted by the Carjacking and Reckless Driving Task Force created in January by the Milwaukee Common Council. Many of the members were present, including Ald. Michael Murphy, Ald. Chantia Lewis, Mayor Tom Barrett, Milwaukee Police Assistant Chief Michael Brunson and Office of Violence Prevention Director Reggie Moore.
Congresswoman Gwen Moore, Milwaukee County Sheriff Earnell Lucas, Milwaukee NAACP President Fred Royal and State Sen. Lena Taylor were also present.
Residents were asked to develop solutions in three areas: prevention and education, infrastructure and enforcement.
