Good Morning! Summer is just around the corner and many are planning their vacations. Plan on moving? Be leery of rental scams. If you are not sure if the property is for rent or for sale, contact the realtor to see if the home is for rent. Do not wire or mail money until you verified that the rental offer is legitimate. Thank you! http://nixle.us/A5MAC
Charles Freiherr was born January 18, 1864 and married his wife Helena (Lena Freiherr) Heinzen April 9, 1885. Charles and Lena had 4 children; Carl, Walter, Fred and Jerome (Romy). Charles was a painter in Sheboygan, Wisconsin and was also employed as a “Special Officer” for the Sheboygan Police Department. A “Special Officer” covered the shifts of regular patrol officers when they were on vacation or were out sick. Officer Freiherr made a total of 27 arrests between July 10, 1895 and September 5, 1895. Officer Frieherr’s last shift working for the City of Sheboygan was September 6, 1895. During Officer Frieherr’s last shift he died in the line of duty around 9:00 p.m. The cause of death was “crushed between railcars.” Officer Frieherr was assigned to watch the Ashland Ave Depot in the City of Sheboygan on September 6, 1895. During Officer Frieherr’s shift, witnesses believed Officer Frieherr was looking for people hopping onto railcars without tickets. Another witness thought Officer Frieherr was pursuing someone on foot. A switch engine at the train depot was pushing 4 box cars north on track number 2 from the platform. Officer Frieherr stepped between 2 of the rail cars. A switchman standing on one of the railcars shouted and warned Officer Freiherr of the danger. Officer Frieherr unfortunately was struck in the head by one of the railcars and was ran over by 3 railcars. Officer Frieherr was laid to rest in the Wildwood Cemetery in Sheboygan, Wisconsin. To this day Officer Freiherr is buried next to his wife, Lena. On May 11, 2018 from 12:00 p.m.-1:00 p.m. Officer Freiherr was honored and added to the Wisconsin State Law Enforcement’s memorial during the 28th Annual Law Enforcement Memorial Ceremony in Madison Wisconsin. The Sheboygan Police Department’s honor guard was present during the ceremony, along with many other Wisconsin Law Enforcement agencies.

Tuesday night was the 11th and final week of classes for the Citizen's Academy. This week the participants "tied it all together." They learned about policing strategies and methods and had a chance to make decisions on how to police our community(in theory). Next week our participants will graduate from the program!
Good Afternoon! The Junior Police Academy is now accepting applications! Many students view the police officer only in the role of "enforcer." Junior Police Academy is designed to take the mystery out of law enforcement and provide a comfortable setting which allows officers and students to interact in an environment free from enforcement. It provides an opportunity for officers and students to see each other as people, rather than as adversaries. For more information and to register, visit, http://sheboyganpolice.com/divisions/junior-police-academy/.

Congratulations to Officer Deutsch, Sgt. Schmitt (SPD) and Lt. Spence (Sheboygan Sheriff) who safely made it to Washington D.C. The officers participated in the Police Unity Tour, riding their bicycles from New Jersey to Washington D.C. The Police Unity Tour raises awareness of Law Enforcement Officers who have died in the line of duty and raises funds for the National Law Enforcement Officer’s Memorial Fund (NLEOMF). Police Week is Sunday, May 13th through Saturday, May 19th.
Officer Deutsch, Sgt. Schmitt (SPD) and Lt. Spence (Sheboygan Sheriff) are currently biking in the Police Unity Tour. The Police Unity Tour started in 1997 with 18 members riding their bicycles from New Jersey to Washington D.C. to raise funds for the National Law Enforcement Officer’s Memorial Fund (NLEOMF). The Police Unity Tour enters its 22nd year in 2018 and will consist of more than 2,800 riders. The ride takes place during National Police Week in May every year. The Police Unity Tour’s mission is two-fold; the main mission is to ensure the 20,200-plus Law Enforcement Officers killed in the line of duty are never forgotten. The second part of the mission is to raise money for the NLEOMF. The NLEOMF maintains the memorial wall in Washington DC and continues to raise awareness for the officers killed in the line of duty. The tour’s motto is, “We Ride For Those Who Died.” The Wisconsin Riders team was founded in 2008 and consists of Law Enforcement Officers from many different agencies across Wisconsin. Over the past ten years we have ridden in memory of several officers including Jennifer Sebena-Wauwatosa PD, Sergio Aleman-Milwaukee County Sheriff, Craig Birkholz-Fond Du Lac PD, Frank Fabiano-Kenosha County Sheriff, John “Spike” Schmitt-Washington County Sheriff, Jason Zunker-Chippewa County Sheriff, Trevor Casper-WI State Patrol; among several others. In 2018, we’ll be riding in honor of Detective Jason Weiland-Everest Metropolitan PD who was shot and killed on March 22, 2017 while responding to a domestic disturbance and multiple shootings. We’ll also be riding in honor of Trooper Anthony Borostowski who was killed in a squad accident on April 11, 2017.
TRAFFIC TIP: Last week we had a high profile incident where two young children fell out of the back of a van. Remember that everyone in a vehicle is required to wear a seatbelt, and young children are required to be in a child safety restraint system. If you want to make sure you have the right car seat for your child, watch the following video from the WI DOT. https://youtu.be/S8kIGPX_xGE
