***KPD WELCOMES NEW OFFICER*** Officer Jason Dienger was sworn in this week as KPD’s newest police officer. Officer Dienger just graduated from UW Stevens Point on Friday, May 18 and began his law enforcement career the following week! He attended the recruit academy at Mid-State Technical college last year and last summer, he served as a limited term employee with the WI DNR and was stationed at Devil’s Lake State Park. If you see Officer Dienger, please welcome him to our village!

The KPD is also participating in this traffic safety campaign. Our officers will be devoting extra time to traffic safety to help ensure we have a safe holiday weekend.

Today, KPD was the host agency for this year's Marathon County Law Enforcement Officers Memorial Service and we want to thank Northland Lutheran High School for allowing the community into their school for this important event. They were exceedingly gracious and the location for the event was perfect. The kids and staff put together this incredible poster as a sign of their appreciation for law enforcement. In addition, the Kronenwetter Lions Club donated their time to prepare a lunch for everyone in attendance. Not only did they donate their time, but they also donated all the food as a token of their appreciation for our area law enforcement. We are so grateful to have strong community partners like Northland Lutheran and the Kronenwetter Lions Club. Thank you very much to each organization!!!

KPD will host this year’s Marathon County Law Enforcement Officers Memorial this Friday, May 18 at 10:00 am at Northland Lutheran High School. The school is located at 2107 Tower Rd and the public is welcome to attend. We have a nice ceremony planned to honor all fallen peace officers.

Thank you ALL Law Enforcement.

*****Congratulations to Our Area Officers of the Year***** Congratulations to KPD Officer Soua Xiong, ROPD Officer Mitch Klieforth, and EVPD Sergeant Nick Aldrich, who were today’s recipients of the Optimist’s Club Officer of the Year award! Great job by each officer to represent their respective departments and our profession in a positive manner.

The original KPD challenge coin.

Our thoughts are with the families of the victims and the entire Spirit Air EMS. Our deepest condolences.

Please stay home if you can. Please be SAFE!!

Congrats on a well earned retirement!

Thank you Northland Lutheran High School Staff and Students!!

***Statement on Last Night’s Police Activity*** For our residents along the Old Highway 51 corridor and particularly those on O’Keefe Dr, E. Nelson Rd, Greenwood Dr. and Pine Grove Dr, you may have noticed a large police presence around 12:30 am last night and we would like to let you know what occurred. The incident began in the Village of Rothschild with a vehicle pursuit that ended with a traffic crash on E. Nelson Rd in Kronenwetter. Once the driver crashed, she and her occupant both fled on foot through the neighborhood. Law enforcement officials from the Marathon County Sheriff’s Office, Rothschild, Mosinee, Everest Metro and Kronenwetter Police Departments quickly set up a perimeter and a K-9 tracked the suspects to a residence. After waking up the sleeping family at the residence, officers were given consent to search the victim’s home and located the pair of criminals hiding behind furniture in the three-season porch. As it turned out, the suspects had unlawfully gained entry into the victim’s residence in an effort to avoid detection. Both suspects were taken into custody without further incident and were booked on numerous charges, including fleeing an officer, burglary, obstructing an officer and multiple warrants. Great job by all these law enforcement agencies, who really worked together to make this happen and protect the community!

***Congratulations to Officer Hansen*** KPD is proud to share this story from the Stevens Point PD, who recently awarded Officer Ashely Hansen with their Meritorious Conduct Award after she helped save the life of a suicidal subject threatening to jump off a bridge into the river. In addition to her full time job with SPPD, Officer Hansen also works part time for KPD and we are not at all surprised by her selfless and exemplary actions. Way to go Officer Hansen!

Due to a vacancy in the full time roster, the KPD welcomes Officer Aaron Seehafer, who was sworn in yesterday. Officer Seehafer worked for the Edgar Police Department for approximately four years, so he is very familiar with the procedures in Marathon County. He brings a positive attitude and strong work ethic and we are excited to have him as part of the KPD team. Welcome aboard!!

KPD's original shoulder patch.

Big thanks to Peoples State Bank of Wausau for their very kind gift! We are very grateful for the food and it was nice for the officers working over the holiday weekend to have some treats! Again, thank you so much!!

The "Drive Sober" campaign is in full swing and KPD is once again participating. Stay safe and warm out there this holiday season!

Always happy to lend a hand!! Thanks for the feedback!

We would also like to thank Trig’s-Weston and Pick N’ Save-Weston for helping. Officer Wolff

*****Police Activity Yesterday Afternoon***** Yesterday afternoon, many of you may have noticed a heavy police presence in a few areas in Kronenwetter: First along I-39 and the Compass Insurance/American Asphalt area and then shortly thereafter in the Timber Creek subdivision. Various agencies were engaged in an effort to apprehend a subject wanted on a pair of felony crimes. Wausau PD had felony charges of criminal damage to property and EVPD had a charge of fleeing an officer. Shortly after the suspect fled from EVPD, they terminated the pursuit at Camp Phillips and Highway 29. The suspect continued on the highway until his vehicle broke down along I-39 south of Kowalski Rd, at which point he left on foot. The Marathon County Sheriff’s Office provided K-9 assistance in an effort to track the suspect; however, initial efforts to apprehend him were unsuccessful. MCSO Deputies later located the subject and took him into custody.

Big thanks to the Samuels Group for delivering cookies the other day! We really appreciate their hospitality.
