November 3rd, 2017 Last weekend, during trick or treating, Chace wanted his picture taken with a 'real police officer' and was able to get this awesome picture with Officer Wilhelm. Chace told his mother that getting this photo was his "dream come true". Well Chace, to be honest, it is our dream come true that we got to take this photo with you! You look awesome in your police officer uniform - so good that I should probably clarify -- Officer Wilhelm is on the left, Chace is on the right :) I want you to do me one favor Chace, in 20 or so years, when you become a police officer, come back in uniform and let's take another photo just like this! --Chief Tom Bishop

October 27th, 2017 -- Substitute Crossing Guard Needed Our department is looking to hire one substitute crossing guard to serve our great community! Crossing guards serve the community by assisting children across Hwy 45 / Fond du Lac Avenue before and after school. Guards in Kewaskum work four (4) crossing periods each day (two in the morning and two in the afternoon). Guards must be dependable and able to work in all weather conditions.

Stop in the Village Hall or Police Department to pick up an application TODAY!!

October 24th, 2017 -- Another scam by some miscreant too lazy to get a real job Today we have had multiple residents report another phone scam going around. They received a call / voicemail from an automated recording stating they had four (4) warrants for their arrest and that they should call back as soon as possible to pay the fees associated. Failure to do so would result in calling the "local cops" to arrest them. THIS IS A SCAM Please be mindful that scammers are always looking for ways to obtain your personal information or scam money out of you. If you ever receive a call, email or snail mail that doesn't seem legit, take steps to verify its legitimacy before giving out any information or money. This may include doing some online research, asking relatives what they think, or calling our department to see if it is a scam we are aware of. --Chief Tom Bishop

October 11th, 2017 -- Last week I was invited by Representative Jesse Kremer to testify in front of the Assembly Committee on Criminal Justice and Public Safety at the Capitol. The bill I testified on addresses concerns I have with how body cameras currently interact with an individuals right to privacy and the open records law. It was a great experience and an honor to be in a position to influence our law makers. --Chief Tom Bishop (Photos Courtesy of The Kewaskum Statesman)
