A "Major Incident Response Team" from the Milwaukee Police Department will be sent to Madison to help maintain order at the Capitol, the department announced Wednesday.
The 37-member unit will be deployed in response to a mutual aid request from the state Department of Administration, according to a police department news release.
The Capitol has been the scene of massive demonstrations by opponents of Gov. Scott Walker's budget-repair bill.
"Our officers will assist in ensuring that the rights of all parties in this debate are respected and protected," said Milwaukee Police Chief Edward A. Flynn.
