How Wisconsin is weeding out bad cops

Jonathan Anderson , USA TODAY NETWORK-Wisconsin April 14, 2017 | 

“MADISON – Police officers who quit their jobs under questionable circumstances or are fired for misconduct are now being tracked by the state in an effort to weed out bad cops.

At least 59 officers have been reported to the state since January, Justice Department spokesman Johnny Koremenos said Friday.”
