Brown County Sheriff's Office

Brown County Sheriff's Office Official page of the Brown County Sheriff's Office Although the office of sheriff is thought by many to have originated in ancient England, there are biblical references to such a position existing as early as 600 B.C.

There are also those who believe that the United States of America was actually named for a Richard Amerycke, who was the High Sheriff of Bristol, England at the time King Henry VII authorized John Cabot's voyage to seek the New World in 1497. Upon Cabot's return to England, he was paid his pension by Amerycke. Brown County has a very rich historical background. For over 200 years after the arrival of Jean Nicolet in 1634, fur traders and missionaries made this area a base for their operations. The boundaries of Brown County were established by the governor of Michigan Territory in the year 1818 as part of the Northwest Territory, after the American Revolution. The first sheriff in the State of Wisconsin was George Johnson, who was originally installed as the territorial sheriff, and later became the first sheriff of Brown County. Sheriff Johnson played an important role in the trial of Chief Oshkosh, which took place in Brown County. In 1957 with the election of Artley Skenandore, Brown County became the first county to elect a full-blooded Indian to the position of sheriff. Today in Wisconsin, the sheriff is the chief law enforcement officer of each county and is elected every four years on a partisan ballot. According to state law, his duties are to enforce the law in the county, take custody of the jail, attend the courts, and serve all processes. The sheriff is responsible to the electorate and can be removed from office by the governor, and then only for just cause.

Mission: Mission Statement The mission of the Brown County Sheriff’s Office is to improve Public Safety through pro-active, efficient, and professional law enforcement services, tailored to the needs of all people in Brown County.

Drive Sober or Get Pulled Over –
December 18, 2020 through January 1, 2021

• Just blew a .08 or above? Then you just blew $10k. That’s the average cost of an OWI considering fines, court costs, attorney fees, higher insurance rates, etc. The Brown County Sheriff's Office is joining law enforcement agencies across Wisconsin looking for impaired drivers. Please - Drive Sober.

• Whether it’s caused by alcohol, legal or illegal drugs, impaired drivers endanger everyone. To make roadways safer for all travelers, law enforcement agencies across Wisconsin are watching for impaired drivers as part of the “Drive Sober or Get Pulled Over” campaign now through New Year’s Day.

• Never allow someone to get behind the wheel impaired. If you suspect an impaired driver, contact 911. Protect yourself and your passengers by ensuring everyone is buckled up.

• Every party begins with a good plan. Consider downloading the free "Drive Sober" mobile app. Along with a designated driver selector, it includes a find-a-ride feature that uses a smart phone’s GPS system to locate alternative transportation.

Feel free to share this on your social media. The organization Rapid Search and Rescue Corp. group up in Wisconsin Rapids have made posts for all the counties throughout Wisconsin with listed missing persons. The posts have great information to make hunters aware that there are missing people in the areas that they may be hunting in, how to prevent getting lost themselves and what to do if they get lost while out hunting. GREAT tips!!! https://www.facebook.com/RapidsSAR/posts/3590746497653360 Thank you! Jackie Kort

People that say we need to defund police or get rid of them have never been stuck 3 miles from the launch with no way to get home. Huge thank you to the Brown County Sheriff's Department. Thank you for finding us and towing us home after our engine died on the bay today. Officer Johnson and i didnt catch his partners name, were our heros today. Thank you again
Rumor has it that hate groups will be out and about tonight targeting the suburbs because the law enforcement will be in common areas such as downtown and the mall. They are also finding those who have lights on their homes that support the healthcare workers and police. Is any of this true?.
so what y'all gonna do, enforce unconstitutional bs that the supreme court has shot down, or actually live up to the oaths y'all took, the eyes of your neighbors are on you. please make the right decisions here. stay home like your governor asks while we live our lives
