Waunakee Police would like to remind you to lock your vehicles. Agencies in Dane County are still regularly taking stolen vehicle reports including two this morning. In today’s cases, like many others, the vehicles were running and unlocked when they were taken. Please remember to lock your vehicles even when warming them up.

REMINDER: Alternate Side parking is in effect. If your vehicle is parked on the street within the Village it should be on the odd side of the roadway overnight tonight 1/14/18-1/15/18. Plows will need to clear our streets from the snow storm tonight. Per Village ordinance a vehicle parked on the street overnight should be parked on the side that corresponds with the date the following morning. As an example, tomorrow is the 15th so vehicles should be on the odd side of the roadway.

The Waunakee Police Department participated in our sixth annual "Shop With A Cop” event yesterday. Lieutenant Kreitzman Officer Glen Jacob, Officer Kara Christenson and Officer Kaylin Borzick took four kids from the Village of Waunakee shopping for Christmas presents at Target on the east side of Madison. Each child received $175, collected through private and corporate donations, to buy gifts for his or her family. The officers and kids then traveled to a VFW in Madison to wrap the gifts and enjoyed lunch together. It was a fun filled day by all! Thank you to all of the supporters for this great community program!! For more information contact Officer Glen Jacob, Shop with a Cop – Dane County, Inc.

Last week was the last night for our Citizen’s Academy. The class learned about investigations and had the opportunity to dust for fingerprints and collect DNA. The 9 weeks went very fast. If you are interested in next year’s class please contact us. Thank you to all that took part in this year’s academy.

**Natural Gas Odor Calls*** The Waunakee Police Department and Waunakee Fire Department are experiencing a high volume of calls throughout the Village regarding an odor of Natural Gas. The odor has been confirmed to be manure that was spread on a nearby field and is NOT Natural Gas. Wind is carrying the odor throughout the Village but there is no air quality threat

Thank you to everyone who joined us this morning for Coffee with a Cop. It was great meeting everyone and we appreciate you taking time out of your day to sit down with us. A HUGE thank you to M-N-M Coffee House for donating the coffee and allowing us to use their business for this event.

Don't forget Coffee with a Cop tomorrow!

SHOP WITH A COP! For the past 16 years, a group of ten Dane County law enforcement agencies have collaborated on an event called SHOP WITH A COP. This will be the 6th year the Waunakee Police Department has participated. In 2014 the participating agencies (including Waunakee Police Department) joined together to form a 501(C) (3) non-profit organization called Shop With A Cop -- Dane County Inc. This charity assists economically disadvantaged families within Waunakee and Dane County during the Holiday Season. We work with school social workers to identify children of families in need. We look for children that are working to full capacity in school and have no major discipline issues. This event gives the children the opportunity to interact with law enforcement in a positive environment. It also allows law enforcement to give back to their communities, and it gives the children a sense of satisfaction to be able to provide gifts for their families. On Sunday, December 3, 2017 approximately 85 children throughout Dane County will be paired with officers to partake in this wonderful event. For children selected from Waunakee, Waunakee Police Department officers will pick up each child in a squad car and accompany them to the Target in Madison. Each child receives a credit of approximately $175.00 to spend on gifts for their family and themselves. The children and officers then travel to a VFW in Madison to wrap presents and enjoy lunch together. If you would like to make a contribution to the Shop With A Cop – Dane County, Inc., please mail or drop off a donation to the Waunakee Police Department, 205 N. Klein Drive. Please make checks payable to Shop With A Cop -- Dane County Inc., not the Village of Waunakee. If you have any questions or would like more information please contact me. All donations to the program are tax deductible and a receipt will be provided. Thank you for your time and generosity!
