(WORT)–The American Civil Liberties Union sent a letter Monday to Madison Police Chief Mike Koval, urging him to change the way MPD works with landlords to police rental properties in Madison. The ACLU says open records requests uncovered evidence of practices that constitute possible violations of the federal Fair Housing Act and Department of Housing and Urban Development guidelines. WORT’s Darien Lamen spoke with Rachel Goodman of the ACLU’s Racial Justice Program about the disproportionate impact these policing practices have on people of color.
