We’ve heard some people say that the Town of East Troy has speed traps. We looked everywhere and couldn’t find any traps!

We did find many of these, however.

We care greatly about the safety of those living and traveling through our community. We remind (sometimes in person) the motoring public to obey the traffic regulations.

The last sign pictured sums it up perfectly. #toetpdprotecting #toetpdconnecting

There appears to be an increase in the number of questions concerning scam emails. Evidentially, these thugs are also working from home and need their own stimulus money.

All joking aside, it would seem the scammers have some basic data about the potential victim, such as usernames or passwords for email accounts and other sites. The scam emails claim that they have incriminating images of the potential victim and include in the email the person’s password. The scammer usually demands some sort of payment to stop them from sending the images to everyone in the potential victim’s email address book.

WHAT NOT TO DO:
UNDER NO CIRCUMSTANCE, should you respond to the email or click any link that may be contained in the email.

DO NOT, I REPEAT ...DO NOT send any form of payment. You will be okay. Think about it, if they had images of you, why would they not include them in the email as proof, just like when they included usernames or passwords?

WHAT SHOULD YOU DO:
Change your passwords if you suspect they were compromised. Block the email sender or mark it as “Junk,” and delete the email. Consider an identity protection service and also check with your homeowner’s insurance, as they may have ID theft coverage available.

Our PD has not received any complaint of this nature today, so we do not have any specifics as to the particular sites, but we want to get the word out to those who follow our page and hope you spread the message.

Did you know: A REPORTED 25 million people are victims of scams like this annually in the United States. Worse, all too often these crimes go unreported because people are embarrassed once they find out they have been duped. These crooks count on that as the longer they can operate before being found out the more they can scam.

Look out for your friends and loved ones as well if they don’t read our posts and please share this. #toetpdprotecting #toetpdconnecting

Our community has two wonderful lakes to enjoy. Lake Beulah and Potter's Lake. Visitors are asked to enjoy the lakes but be respectful of these unique environmental treasures.

When launching your watercraft, it is essential that you be a good environmental steward and be sure to remove ALL the aquatic growth from trailers, boats and motors before you launch. Other sources of possible contamination include live wells, boat bilges and water bladders. All of these items should be drained away from the boat launch to prevent the transfer of invasive creatures and aquatic growth.

Plan a family outing on one of our lakes and enjoy these unique treasures. #toetpdconnecting

Your cloth face covering should:
✔️ Reach above the nose, below the chin, and completely cover the mouth and nostrils
✔️ Fit snugly against the sides of the face
✔️ Be made of multiple layers of fabric that you can still breathe through
✔️ Be able to be laundered and machine dried without damaging the material or shape
Do not buy surgical masks to use as a face covering. Those are intended for healthcare workers and first responders. Many items you may already have in your home can be used to create face coverings.
Try creating a cloth face covering using bandanas, ski masks, washable napkins, or dish towels.

MEDIA ADVISORY/NEWS RELEASE

For Immediate Release No. 2020-005
Tuesday, April 28, 2020

The fishing season of 2020 is fast approaching as is the recreational boating season. Operating a water vessel is a very dangerous undertaking. There are no marked traffic lanes, stop signs, yield signs, or speed limits. Vessels crisscross in front of and behind each other. Vessels are towing skiers and fishermen are anchored or drifting on the water. The winds constantly change. Swimmers in the water and hidden debris floats just under the water’s surface.

If your vessel breaks down or someone falls overboard, you cannot just exit the boat and walk out to help. Retrieving a person from the water is dangerous and requires the utmost attention and assistance not encountered on land.

Stated simply and succinctly, boating safety presents and entirely different set of circumstances, and it is essential you have the correct “tools in your tool box” to operate your vessel safely and, if the situation presents itself, assist those in need of help and assistance.

My Department’s Water Patrol Officers are available to conduct vessel inspections. We will inspect your vessel and make sure you have the proper equipment on board. We will check to make sure your equipment is serviceable. You may contact us on the water, wave us down, or call and make an appointment for one of my members or myself to come to your home (Town of East Troy residents) and inspect your vessel. If your vessel is trailered, drive over to the station house. All I ask is you call and make an appointment for station house inspections. The Department phone number is 262-642-3700. We are conveniently located in the Town Hall at N9330 Stewart School, Road.

I would like to make it perfectly clear, if you stop us on the water and ask for a safety inspection we will do that for you. If you have an equipment deficiency we will not cite you. Rather, we will educate you as to what you need to correct the problem.

Safety is our #1 concern. We want you to have fun and enjoy the waterways of our community. WE can accomplish this by working together to ensure a safe boating environment for everyone.

A few questions keep coming up, so I’ll include a few helpful FAQs here.

Fire extinguishers should be checked for functionality. Some have a gauge which you can check to see if the extinguisher is still usable. But if there is no gauge, pick it up and shake the extinguisher, then listen on the side of the canister. You should hear sediment falling from top to bottom. If it falls gently, the material inside is still usable, but if you hear a sudden thud of a big clump of sediment falling, that fire extinguisher needs to be replace. Earlier this year there was recall on fire extinguishers. Check out the Town of East Troy Police Department page for details.

One more pointer from FAQs I have had is about wake. A boat owner/operator is responsible for the wake of their boat. If a wake floods your boat or does damage, try to write down the time and place and the registration numbers of the boat, and then report the incident to our office. Be careful that your wake does not endanger other boaters or damage equipment or shorelines.

Some of the basic equipment required for safe operation is:
• If you were born after 1-1-89 – Boaters Safety Certificate on board (PWC and motorized boats)
• Certificate of number affixed to your vessel (PWC and boats)
• Expiration decals displayed
• Wearable PFD: Type I, II, III or V (to include unpowered boat)
• Throwable PFD: Type IV (boat 16’ to less than 26’)
• Type B-1 fire extinguisher
• Operational navigation lights
(there are additional requirements for those operating on federally controlled waterways)
(for additional information check out the WI DNR web page concerning boating)

I would like to leave you with this quote. It is appropriate for any body of water – “To insure safety at sea, the best that science can devise, and that naval organization can provide must be regarded only as an aid, and never as a substitute for good seamanship, self-reliance, and sense of ultimate responsibility which are the first requisites in a seaman and naval officer.” ~Admiral Chester W. Nimitz

Now is a great time to take an online boaters safety course. Sign up today. Training is important for boaters of all experience levels, but especially for the beginning boater. In 2018, 74% of accidents involving fatalities occurred on boats where the operator had no formal instruction on how to operate the vessel. #toetpdconnecting
