After an incident took place last year between a Racine Police officer recruit and a Kenosha officer, there has been a recommendation to approve a payment of $50,000 to the City of Kenosha, according to a story in the Journal Times.
The City Attorney’s Office issued a statement indicating that the incident occurred March 13, 2018, at Gateway Technical College’s Kenosha Campus, located at 3520 30th Avenue. The incident happened during a break between exercises in the training room and resulted in the Kenosha officer sustaining an injury, which required surgery and physical therapy.
This case was referred to the Finance and Personnel Committee, which will make a recommendation, and then will go to the City Council on March 19 where they will vote to either accept or reject the recommended payment.
