Fiscal Note
The proposed resolution accepts the recommendation of the Madison Police Department Policy and Procedure Review Ad Hoc Committee to select Michael J. Gennaco d/b/a OIR Group as the expert consultant to conduct a review of the Madison Police Department at a price not to exceed $378,800. The 2016 Adopted Operating Budget includes $50,000 to support the work of the committee. In their initial review, the committee determined the original funding was insufficient to conduct a comprehensive review. In June 2016, the Common Council approved a resolution (RES-16-00436, Legistar File ID 42875) increasing funding for the review of the Madison Police Department Policy, Procedure, Culture, and Training practices by transferring $350,000 from the Contingent Reserve. Total funding available for the review is $400,000.
