Gillett Police Department News

Happy Veteran’s Day to the heroes in our community and around the country. We are in debt to you for your un-selfish service to our great nation. Thank you for your service 🇺🇸

Congrats, and welcome!

This is not meant to scare, but rather to educate and remind. Please be sure to check through your children’s candy this Halloween season. AND...speaking of Halloween sure to find our squad car during Trick-or-Treating on Tuesday afternoon/evening and assist your kids load up on candy for the year! Rumor is there are some rather large bags of candy waiting to be opened at the PD 😁

Great job by the Sheriff’s Office! Sadly, these types of drugs are around us. This is a great reminder...if you see something, say something. Almost all drug cases we investigate start with a citizen tip. You can call us or message us on here, and you can remain anonymous if you’d like. Our hope is that we can work together with our citizens to help make our community safe for our residents and visitors! Arrests Made Related to Drug and Property Crimes in Oconto County:

Sometimes you just don’t know what you might encounter during a shift as a police officer. Our friends at the Grand Chute PD found that out first-hand!

Halloween trick-or-treat hours will be as follows in the City of Gillett: Tuesday, Oct. 31 from 3:30 - 6:00 P.M. Make sure to look for our patrol vehicle while making your way around the city, our officers will be handing out candy! 🎃 🍭 🍬 Please feel free to "Like" and "Share" our post to spread the word!

**THE OWNER HAS BEEN LOCATED** This kitten was found on N. Elm St. It is about 8 weeks old. It is currently at the Gillett Police Department. If it is yours, or if you know who is missing it, please call the PD at 920-855-2125.

Please support our friends to the east! This is a great thing they are trying to do!

We extend our deepest sympathies to Deputy Connelly’s family, friends, and co-workers. Our thoughts and prayers are with you in the days and weeks ahead. Rest In peace, brother.

Have you ever sat back and thought to yourself... “I wonder how much twine it would take to go down W. Main Street from Oak Street to Finnegan Lake Road....” Well now you’s this much...

**OWNER HAS BEEN LOCATED** This dog was found this morning near the car wash behind Subway. It’s a male, and he has been licking us to death! If you know where he belongs, please call the Gillett Police Department at 920-855-2125.

With the great summer weather we are experiencing this first weekend of Fall, we are expecting to see a large number of ATV/UTV's on our streets and trails. If you're on one of those machines, please be mindful of the ATV speed limit throughout town (10 mph), as well as being aware of the specific ATV routes in the city. We have a great resource here for that activity, and we want to make sure everyone is following the rules and being safe! Enjoy your time in Gillett, and we hope you have an awesome weekend, no matter your plans!

“We really tried to snap it up so we could be as efficient as we could and get back out to the fair,” Keplinger said. "But things went remarkably well and we took down a moderate-sized indoor marijuana grow. It was handled safely, it was handled effectively, and I’m very proud of the time they put in.” - Chief Jess Keplinger. The suspect was subsequently arrested and charged with manufacturing THC with the intent to deliver. Two marijuana plants, 15.7 grams of marijuana, and numerous items of drug paraphernalia were seized during the search warrant.


Please remember, school begins today. The area near both schools is a school zone, which means when children are present, the speed limit is 15mph. Please watch for buses and children walking. If your commute takes you that way, be sure to give yourself some extra time. We will be out enforcing all school-related traffic laws. Thank you for your help keeping our children safe!

We want to wish everyone a very safe and fun Labor Day weekend! Enjoy some beverages (responsibly!), have a burger or brat, and enjoy some relaxation!

This a great reminder with school starting up soon! Very soon the big yellow buses will be traveling on our streets. We work very closely with the great people at Lamers. We investigate every violation sent to us, and citations are issued. The safety of our students is our top priority.

We have noticed an increased number of dogs that have been lost within our city. Please, please, please...put a collar with a tag on your pets, and if possible, have them micro-chipped as well. That way, if an animal is found, we can find the owner much faster. We love dogs (and cats), but we'd rather meet them while they are out walking with their owners, rather than walking themselves! Also, as a friendly reminder, city ordinance requires you to register your dog. $5 if they are spayed/neutered and $10 if not. That is a yearly fee, and can be paid at City Hall.

Officer Hull and Officer VanderBloomen took part in EVOC training today. This training helps us work on our skills for operating an emergency vehicle. This is a bi-annual training required of all sworn law enforcement officers. This video is of Officer Hull navigating some curves.

After enjoying the Oconto County Fair, this young man and his mother stopped in for a visit at the Gillett Police Department. He asked to have a picture taken with Officer Baeten, and proudly expressed how he wants to be a police officer when he gets older! Thank you for stopping by, and we hope to see you again next year!

**UPDATE: The dog's owner has been located! Thank you to everyone who shared and sent us tips!** Know where this dog belongs??? It was found on E. First Street near S. Green Bay Avenue. It does not have any tags, but is super friendly! Call the Gillett PD with any information: 920-855-2125.

As much as the kids want to deny it, school will be back in session in another few weeks. With that, we want to remind drivers that the speed limit in front of the Gillett Secondary School on W. Main Street is 30mph. We have been observing an increasing amount of speeding violations in that area, with citations recently being issued for speeds in the upper 40's and low 50's. Once school is back in session and the school zone is in effect, the speed limit becomes 15mph. So please, slow down while driving through that area, and please be observant once school is back in session. We need everyone's help to keep our children safe!

This individual is still missing. If you have any information about this case, please contact the Marinette County Sheriff's Office at the information shown below.

So great to see Officer Brian Murphy heading home! As you may recall, he was struck on I-41 in Ashwaubenon by an alleged drunk driver while attending to a vehicle fire in July. To our brother, thank you for your service, and best wishes on your continued recovery!

Congrats to our fire fighter friends to the east!
