Salute to our wonderful dispatchers as we continue to celebrate National Telecommunicator Week! #ThankYou911 #Iam911 #ThinGoldLine

Thanks for their commitment to keeping us safe. Dispatchers are generally the first voice that a person hears when they are in crisis and need help fast! Whether it's fast response to 911 calls, patrol initiated calls, EMS, FIRE, or general calls, our dispatchers are quick to assess and get HELP GOING. Dispatchers, thank you for all you do! Happy NATIONAL TELECOMMUNICATIONS WEEK! We are proud of all of you. ~

Well said Jon:

Yes you can do the same here at the Stoughton PD. We are open 24/7/365. Thanks Middleton PD for your excellent suggestions: "Safe Zone" Craigslist, eBay, Facebook and many other websites are great tools for finding good deals, but can also be dangerous if not handled wisely. Besides the possibility of scams and fraudulent transactions, there are also isolated incidents of buyers and sellers of internet transactions that end up being victims of crimes like robbery, theft and assault when they meet in person to complete the transaction. To help citizens complete these transactions safely, the Middleton Police Department highly recommends meeting in a highly visible, public place and is offering up its lobby as a "safe zone" for buyers and sellers of internet transactions to meet to complete their deals. People do not need to ask permission or make an appointment to use the lobby for this purpose. Weapons are NOT allowed in the police department. The Middleton Police Department always has someone on duty in the building and the lobby is open 24 hours a day, every day and is under video surveillance for added protection. If the other person does not want to meet at the police department, or another public place, there is a good possibility that something isn't right and you should probably avoid completing the transaction. If you are unable to meet at the police department and chose another location to complete internet transactions, help protect yourself by remembering these tips when meeting someone for the first time: If it sounds too good to be true, it probably is. Do not meet in a secluded place or invite strangers into your home. Insist on a public meeting place like a cafe, bank, or shopping center. Be especially careful buying & selling high value items. Take your cell phone with you. Tell a friend or family member where you are going. Consider having someone with you. Trust your instincts.

Happy Saint Patrick's Day! We are particpating in a county wide effort to reduce impaired driving and will have additional staff on focusing on just that. Be green and be safe!

Join us in today in congratulating Dispatcher Mary Lincoln on her retirement. Mary started with us on March 1st, 2006, and worked exclusively on dispatching our second shift for the past twelve years. Mary had previously dispatched in Watertown, Stephenson County Sheriff's Department (Illinois) and Brodhead. Mary served as a trainer for us, teaching new dispatchers the "ropes". Mary had a reputation of keeping her cool while dispatching in tense situations. Cheers! Here is to the next chapter.
