John Tate II withdraws from independent police monitor position


    The Police Civilian Oversight Board was notified on Oct. 17 that John Tate II has withdrawn his acceptance of the independent police monitor position to accept another opportunity.

    Last week, the Police Civilian Oversight Board (PCOB) had selected Tate as the first independent police monitor in the City of Madison’s history. The responsibilities of the independent police monitor include oversight of the Madison Police Department’s (MPD) compliance with internal policies and procedures.

    The Board is executing its next steps and will release an update shortly, according to a press release.

    The next Police Civilian Oversight Board meeting is scheduled for Oct. 27.
