While there has been multiple communications to the membership – apparently the word has not fully been circulated. Your Executive Board absolutely believes the entire MPA membership needs to remain on top of this situation.
Thank You – to our entire Active, Guard/Reserve, and Retired military members
The Milwaukee Police Department has many former military members, as well as, retired service members amongst our ranks; the entire community is better for it. MPD Detective (ret) Larry Powalisz has created a wonderful tribute to those that have made the ultimate sacrifice.
Former MPA member… Mike Draeger would have been a proud grandfather to the grandson (Max) he never had the opportunity to meet. Mike was killed in the line of duty, December 28, 1974. Max Siepert is the incredible young man who walked into the Greenfield Police Department Friday and gave the clerk a bag of coins worth about $10. Max had just studied the September 11 attacks in school.
The selfless act of young Max is truly meaningful– Max, the Milwaukee Police Association applauds you!

The school at 2023 W. Wisconsin Avenue is named after Assata Shakur [birth name: Joanne Deborah Chesimard]. Assata is the woman who was recently added to the FBI's most wanted terrorist list. She was convicted of murder in 1977, for the fatal shooting of New Jersey State Trooper Werner Foerster. Our brother, State Trooper Werner Foerster shall never be forgotten.
