Milwaukee Police Supervisors’ Organization


Board of Directors Election

The Board accepted nominations at the August Membership Meetings for two positions on the Board for 3 year terms, 2016 thru 2018.  Current Directors Mark Wroblewski and Scott Charles were nominated.  The Board received no other nominations, therefore pursuant to our bylaws, Charles and Wroblewski will be seated for those terms without scheduling an election.


As our members are aware, the state law which overruled the City of MIlwaukee’s residency requirement for our members has been winding it’s way through the Wisconsin judiciary.  In the latest twist, the Court of Appeals has now ruled that law unconstitutional, essentially restoring the City’s right to impose residency.

The next question:  will the Supreme Court take the case?  If not, the Court of Appeals decision stands.  If the Supreme Court takes the case, the law will remain in flux until they render a decision.

Meanwhile, the City’s official position is as follows:

“On July 21, 2015, the Wisconsin Court of Appeals rightfully issued a unanimous decision upholding the City of Milwaukee’s 75 year old residency ordinance. The ordinance requires all city employees to become residents of the city within 6 months of hire, and to remain residents as a condition of being employed by the city. The Court’s decision held that under the Home Rule Amendment to the Wisconsin Constitution, the City of Milwaukee is entitled to enforce the ordinance in spite of a state statute enacted in June, 2013 to the contrary.

The City of Milwaukee is committed to continuing its residency rule. However, in consideration of uncertainty during the time it may take to know whether the Wisconsin Supreme Court will review the case, the City has agreed to continue to suspend enforcement of the ordinance. The City will fully enforce the ordinance once the Supreme Court either refuses review or affirms the Court of Appeals’ well-founded opinion. Employees who disregard the ordinance do so at their own risk.”
