Reacting to recently released video of an arrest made by Madison Police officers

We expect a fair and thorough investigation of this very disturbing video. The key to public
confidence in the integrity of the investigative process is full transparency after the fact.
We are committed to a higher level of transparency and taking a proactive, problem-solving
approach to the difficult issue of handling mental health crises.
