Milwaukee Police Assistant Chief James Harpole joined the Milwaukee Police Department in 1985 as juvenile crime was on the verge of escalating.

Harpole is tall and lean with thinning dark hair, an olive complexion and a manner of speaking that suggests years of postgraduate education. When he started, the department had a separate juvenile division, and part of what its officers did was steer families of arrested kids toward social services when they were appropriate.
The early 1990s saw a proliferating epidemic of crack cocaine combined with a surge in the population of adolescents.
"As the system became just overwhelmed and the violence escalated, it was more about getting these violent offenders through the system," Harpole says. "There was a lot less focus on service provision" - in the police department, and in the system as a whole.
Then the department folded what had been its juvenile division into a new "sensitive crimes division" focusing on family and domestic violence, and sexual assault. "It was no longer the mechanism to refer families of kids to additional services that might help keep them out of more trouble," Harpole says.
"We don't see open-air drug markets like you saw at one time," Harpole says.
Resources "haven't kept pace with the needs," Harpole adds - but at the same time, juvenile justice authorities haven't surrendered to cynicism or despair.
For the cops and the courts, Harpole says, trauma-informed care can mean looking at "not just the kid who is in trouble with the law, but the family unit."

"We have to be respectful of this new process and we have to be respectful of the District Attorney`s investigation and once that investigation is complete, as Chief Flynn has previously stated, then that (officer's) name will be publicly released," Milwaukee Police Department Assistant Chief James Harpole said.

Jim Harpole is assistant chief with the Milwaukee Police Department, which is stepping up patrol activities in a direct response to an increase in shootings this summer, in three of the department's seven districts. "We really came to the understanding that some areas of our north side police districts were really in much greater need of additional police attention due to the level of gun violence that we were seeing," said Harpole. Milwaukee has seen shootings increase by 59% this year compared with 2010, including 178 shootings this summer.

Harpole said crime data will allow the department to put extra officers in areas that have seen an increase in gun crimes and drug dealing this summer - with the goal of making neighborhoods safer. "We are constantly paying attention to our data on a daily basis," he said.

Assistant Chief James Harpole, who heads the Police Department's Criminal Investigation Bureau, said the arrests had made the city safer, but he warned members of the public to stay aware of their surroundings.

Harpole explained that crime crews such as the ones broken up with the most recent arrests are criminal groups less formally organized than structured gangs, which often have formal hierarchies.
