MILWAUKEE (WITI) -- Back in 2010, Milwaukee Police Chief Ed Flynn challenged officers to create a program that would address the children in the community about what police do and how they do it. They came up with a program called S.T.O.P. -- or Students Talking it Over with Police. It is designed to address the relationship between future young leaders (ages 12-17) and police in the City of Milwaukee and to decrease the chances of an initial volatile interaction and cultivate sustainable and positive rapport.
Studio A's Brian Kramp shows you, S.T.O.P. has changed the relationship between police and the future leaders of our community.
