MILWAUKEE — The Village Police Department will soon have a much-needed and anticipated interview room, complete with brand new video equipment. The department was given a $1,930 grant from the Office of Justice Assistance, which will cover the cost of a 16-channel DVR with CD/DVDRW, one terabyte hard disc drive and 10-inch monitor with speaker; all of which records and plays in high-definition video.

Police Chief Mike Hartert explained that several years ago, the state passed a law that departments voice record any suspect being interviewed for a potential felony. Since that law took effect, the department has been using a handheld voice recorder, but Hartert said it's a better practice in most cases to have both voice and visual recordings.
