UPDATE: Flynn to seek meeting with media

The Milwaukee Journal Sentinel is reporting this afternoon that Ed Flynn, Milwaukee’s chief of police, said in a news conference this morning that he will be inviting media representatives to talk about police policy and preventing incidents in the future. Read the full story here.

This comes after the recent arrests of two Milwaukee photojournalists: Clint Fillinger of WITI Fox 6 and Kristyna Wentz-Graff of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel.

It is unclear if WNPA will be invited to the table, although our sincere hope is that we – or a representative from NPPA – will be.

Mark Hertzberg, director of photography at the Racine Journal Times as well as a past chairman of NPPA’s police/press relations committee, has offered to assist.

    Many thanks Mike, for all your diligence and efforts on this! It has been a relief to have the support of NPPA and WNPA throughout this process. I hope no other pj finds themselves in this situation, but should they, they can be sure that this organization will help. Thanks to everyone for all your kind words and support. It’s helped more than you know!

  3. You are very, very welcome, Kris.
