MPSO Director and President Gregg Duran has retired from the Milwaukee Police Department effective October 1st, 2017 after more than 25 years of Service.  Gregg has been appointed Chief of Police of the Village of Eagle, WI Police Department.

The MPSO Board congratulates Gregg on his well-earned and deserved retirement from the department and thanks him for his significant and much-appreciated service to the members of this Organization.  Please join us in wishing Gregg a long, happy, and healthy retirement!

MPSO Vice-President Carmelo Patti will assume the duties of Acting President until a Special Election is completed and the Board of Directors returns to full strength, as outlined in Section 5.05 of the MPSO Constitution.

Finally; Consistent with the MPSO Constitution and By-laws, a Special Election will be held to fill Gregg’s position on the Board of Directors for the remainder of his current term, which runs through December 31st, 2019.   Since the MPSO by-laws prohibit special elections being held concurrently with regular elections, and the annual regular election is currently underway, the Special Election to fill Gregg’s unexpired term will be held as follows:
