Dodge County Sheriff's Office News

We conducted ACTIVE SHOOTER training exercises today with our local public safety partners (law enforcement/fire/medical) at the Kasson Mantorville High School. Great training put on by our PSAP/EM Director Matt Maas and his awesome staff of instructors. Big thanks to Mark Matuska and his staff at KMHS. We also couldn't do training like this without the help of many community volunteers including Betsy and Hannah from KAAL! Thanks to everyone who made this such a successful training event today.

FOUND PROPERTY Marijuana grow West of Mantorville on state DNR Wildlife Management Land. Recovered property includes 60 large marijuana plants, grow equipment, and gardening stuff. We’ve been checking on your progress throughout the summer and know you’ve put a lot of time and effort into this grow thanks to our trail camera. It’s unfortunate that you chose to clear that area and cut down trees for your operation. You’re welcome to come to the Sheriff’s Office in Mantorville to discuss your property before we come to your house. Sincerely, Dodge County Investigations

NEVER FORGET....... September 11th, 2001, at 0842AM American Airlines Flight 11 crashed into the north face of the North Tower, World Trade Center 1. When the “Today Show” interrupted their newscast with the news and video, Rosie came outside to the garage where my brother Mark and I were working out. She told us a plane had crashed into the World Trade Center. We both walked inside with Rosie and watched in horror when United Airlines Flight 175 hit the South Tower, World Trade Center 2 at 0903AM. 34 minutes later American Airlines Flight 77 crashes into the west side of the Pentagon. We couldn’t believe what we were watching….the USA was under attack. In the weeks and months to follow, after nearly 3000 people lost their lives, and an additional 6000 were injured, our United States Flag was flown and displayed everywhere – on our homes and vehicles, on shirts, on hats, everywhere you looked you saw the patriotism of American’s showing the world that we stood as one nation in support of our military and our first responders who serve to protect us, and showing that we stood strong as one nation against terrorism. Fast forward 17 years later, while our American Flag has not changed, much of our country’s attitude about it certainly has. While I hope and pray we never see an attack like that again on American soil, I sure do miss the patriotism that followed. It didn’t matter what political party you supported, what nationality you represented, what your skin color was, your sexual preference or your gender - we all proudly flew the flag everywhere we could because we were proud to be Americans! It was our flag! At the Dodge County Sheriff’s Office we proudly fly our flag outside our offices, and outside our homes. We proudly display it on our uniforms and on all of our marked squad cars. We salute to our flag when in uniform, we remove our hats and place our hands over our hearts when in civilian clothes, and we ALWAYS stand for our flag. We will never forget all the rescuers who died in honor, every life lost, and every family that continues to live in grief. If we learn nothing else from this great tragedy, we learn that life is short and there is no time for hate. God Bless our flag and God Bless the USA. Scott

You don't want to be on the news as a victim?? Then PLEASE LOCK UP! #9PMROUTINE is a great reminder to please remember to lock your home, garage, and vehicles. Also check on the kiddos! Don't be a victim!

SEPTEMBER IS SUICIDE PREVENTION MONTH September is National Suicide Prevention Awareness Month—a time to share resources and stories in an effort to shed light on this highly taboo and stigmatized topic. According to the National Alliance on Mental Illness (NAMI), each year more than 41,000 individuals die by suicide, leaving behind their friends and family members to navigate the tragedy of loss. In many cases, friends and families affected by a suicide loss (often called “suicide loss survivors”) are left in the dark. Too often the feelings of shame and stigma prevent them from talking openly. NAMI uses this month to reach out to those affected by suicide, raise awareness and connect individuals with suicidal ideation to treatment services. It is also important to ensure that individuals, friends and families have access to the resources they need to discuss suicide prevention. NAMI's website provides a ton of great information, help and resources. Here in Dodge County, we have seen many struggle with mental illness and suicide – In the past 5 years we’ve responded to nearly 300 suicide threats calls, 58 suicide attempts, and 16 suicides. These incidents obviously take a toll on family and friends. Our deputies and first responders who respond to these calls often struggle with them too. It affects the entire community. It is so important that we work together as a community to ensure that individuals, friends and families have access to the resources they need to discuss suicide prevention. Please be kind to one another and don’t be afraid to talk about it! We can all benefit from honest conversations about mental health conditions and suicide. Remember just one conversation can change a life. Scott
