Fitchburg votes to hire ousted Milwaukee police chief Alfonso Morales as new chief

The man ousted as Milwaukee’s police chief over his handling of racial justice protests last year was selected Monday to be Fitchburg’s next top cop. The city’s Police and Fire Commission voted 3-2 to hire Alfonso Morales, who had been criticized in Milwaukee for ordering officers to fire tear gas and pepper spray at people protesting George Floyd’s murder and for how his department had policed Black communities since his appointment in 2018. That city’s fire and police commission demoted him in August 2020.
