Concordia University is the host location for the Milwaukee Police Major Incident Response Team’s (MIRT) training directed by the FEMA Center for Disaster Preparedness (CDP).
The weeklong training, which begins on June 2, is being offered through the U.S. Department of Homeland Security.
“It is an honor to utilize CUW for this once in a lifetime opportunity,” said Dr. Kenneth Harris, Jr., chair of Justice and Public Policy at CUW and a lieutenant with the Milwaukee Police Department.
According to Harris, MIRT has assisted in crowd control with federal, state, and local enforcement authorities in several states and has garnered an expert reputation in the law enforcement community.
There will be, on average, 60 uniformed officers on campus each day of the training. The officers will be housed on campus in a Pharmacy School classroom and utilize the entire parking lot outside of Campus Safety and the Pharmacy School Building. Training is scheduled to conclude on Saturday, June 7.
