Strip-searching cops investigated, uncharged

At least six Milwaukee police officers were investigated for impeding the inquiry into a series of illegal strip and cavity searches by their fellow officers, according to records recently made public in court.

One officer told authorities she had not witnessed an improper search even though a video showed she was standing just a few feet away. Five others were suspected of violating a court order by discussing the strip search investigation soon after they were subpoenaed to testify at a secret fact-finding hearing in 2012.

The six officers may have broken the law or violated department rules, the video and documents show, but none of them faced criminal charges or discipline by the Police Department.
