Wisconsin American Legion Recognizes Police Officer


Watertown Police Officer Stacy Schroeder was recognized by the Wisconsin American Legion at their state conference on July 14, 2018. After receiving local and regional awards from the American Legion, Officer Schroeder was recognized with the 2018 Edward J. Ormsby Law & Order Award.



WDNR Warden Supervisor Dave Walz had just finished his shift early June 20th when he got a call around 1:15 a.m. from the Vilas County Sheriff’s Office about a bear cub that went tumbling into a newly constructed and open basement. The cub was bawling to his momma, who was peering down at her baby from the edge where she and other cubs were waiting. There was no way to get out. So, Lt. Dave drove to the Eagle River-area residence to work with the homeowner to liberate the trapped baby. “I could hear him bawling when I started driving down the driveway,” Warden Dave said. “Poor little guy.” Lt. Dave positioned his truck with the headlights pointing toward the open basement to encourage momma bear and cubs to retreat. He and the homeowner carefully slid a ladder down one corner of the basement and the cub skedaddled on up and made a beeline for momma. “It worked out just awesome!” Warden Dave said. Watch the rescue!

Officers Crash Party


Morgan thought it would be cool to have a Police Officer come to her 6th birthday party. So, an entire shift of the City of Marshfield Police Department took the opportunity to “crash” her party and even brought her a few gifts.

Preparing For The Future

Officer Bri Braunschweig takes a picture with local Girl Scouts. Officer Bri talked with the girls about why she became a police officer. Who knows, maybe we have a future officer or two in the photo too. Submitted by Summit PD.
