The Winter Parking Ban will start being enforced overnight Wednesday, December 14, 2022 (technically 1am on the 15th). You will be safe for one more night, but after that, parking tickets will be issued. It seems as though most people are off the streets already, and we do appreciate it.

There is a storm system on its way starting tonight and lasting until Friday. Things could be messy for a while. Please be safe if you are out on the roads. Thank you.

Some of you may be aware that I have been researching the history of the Kewaunee Police Department. I am approaching the 9-year mark of my research. Today I obtained this awesome 1983 group photo from former Police Chief Dan Kruse. This just goes to show that even after 9-years, I know there is still more information out there. I will ask again, if anyone has any photos from the department, please contact me. We would love to add them to our archives.

On another note, 2023 marks the 150th Anniversary of the Kewaunee Police Department. We are in the process of planning some things to celebrate. We will provide details when we have them. We are excited for this anniversary and look forward to serving the community for many more years.

Thank you,
Officer Brian Huben

***Kewaunee Police Chief Announces Retirement***

Citizens of the City of Kewaunee,

I want to thank you for all of your support that you have granted me over the past 33.5 years of service in this community. It is now time for me to retire from Law Enforcement service as the years are starting to take a toll on me. It has been an honor serving you and talking with many of you over the years. I leave you in good hands with the professionals within the Kewaunee Police Department. I am very proud of what we have accomplished here at the department.

I want you to welcome the incoming Chief of Police, Robin Mueller. Assistant Chief Mueller was my go-to person for the last three years while I served as Chief of Police. Assistant Chief Mueller is very knowledgeable and comes with many years of experience with the City of Kewaunee. Assistant Chief Mueller will be taking over the day-to-day operations of the Kewaunee Police Department while I am on vacation. Assistant Chief Mueller will be sworn in January of 2023 as your new Police Chief for the City of Kewaunee. Please give her a warm welcome to the new position.

Thank you,

James J. Kleiman Jr.
Chief of Police
Kewaunee Police Department

Great advice.
11/02/2022

Great advice.

With car vs deer season upon us I took this picture today to show the result of two different reactions to seeing that deer in front of you. The vehicle on the right hit the deer. It sustained some damage but will most likely be fixed. The vehicle on the left swerved to miss the deer, lost control and rolled over. The first instinct when we see an animal on the road is to jerk the wheel and try to avoid it. We need to train ourselves to overcome this as it rarely ends well. The best thing to do is brake hard and repeat in your head straight, straight, straight if you hit it so be it. Vehicles can be repaired/replaced you can not. So please drive safe and remember to Move Over and Slow Down for all vehicles displaying flashing lights on the side of the road.

Well done!!

Well done!!

This morning we awarded Deputy Hailee Wolf, Deputy Brandon Deprey and Officer Riley Glish with our Department's Life Saving Award.
This award was in recognition of their actions in response to an attempted su***de by an inmate in our Jail Facility. Their quick response and decisive action made the difference in saving the life of the individual.
Another great example of the professionalism in the service of our community!

Congratulations Officer Riley Glish!!

Riley (pictured on the far right) accepted a position with the City of Kewaunee Police Department as a full-time Police Officer.

Riley was a Sturgeon Bay PD Community Service Officer while attending the NWTC Public Safety Education program.

Riley served Sturgeon Bay well! Congratulations and good luck in Kewaunee!
Just wanted to give a big thank you to the Kewaunee police department and officer Brian gale for taking the time out of his day to stop by my son Charlie for his 3rd birthday, ironically Brian’s dogs name was charlie,and they both love the police!!! He sure loves cop cars and it made his night!!! Thank you so much from our whole family
Travis, Sasha, Charlie and trevor!
Thank you for your service and protection. We appreciate you and we need you!
Did you know your deactivated cell phone can still call 911?

City of Kewaunee Police Department warn people on giving old mobiles to children to play with.
When is the Christmas parade
Just wondering if the dog that was found wandering Center & 6th Street at 5am and given over to the care of the wonderful Kewaunee Police Dept. has found her family yet!

To anyone who's looking for her still, she's friendly with light brown/tan & white splotches, has long hair and a bunt-like tail that wiggles: a dog with a curiosity for roaming. Not really a barker, either. No tag identification but was wearing a light blue collar with green print on it. Very FRIENDLY but does like to jump a little to say "Hi!" (Obviously still a puppy but with some training skills!)

If she's back with her family, could anyone let me know? It would make me so happy to know that some Fur Parent isn't out there still suffering and not knowing where their Fur Baby is!
LOST.. 6 month old German Shepard mix .. She has a black collar with name tag on & part of chain hanging on her. (unless someone cut the chain & took her). Missing from County Road F & Birchwood area around noon.. If you see her, please let me know.
••••Update••• Milo is home again - with his owner! Thanks everyone!

FOUND!!!! Is this your baby? He was running down HWY 29, by Prevea clinic. Afraid he was going to get hit. No collar looks well cared for so am thinking he has a home. Contact me via Facebook or Kewaunee police department
Just a note that I saw some fella pick up a big piece of steel off the street, which was good, but just threw it on lawn by Haney Park sign, which was bad. I couldn't see what he threw over there, so checked when he left. I placed it against the maintenance room door on the warm up house......just so you know where it came from.
Does anyone know if there’s an ordinance stating how long, or late, the manure trucks can go barreling down our roads out here on Cedar Valley Rd? They have been hauling ass past our home 24/7 for the past 2-3 days! The house is shut tight because of the cold, but they’re so loud, and have been keeping us all awake all night! Aaarrrgggghhhhhh!!!! 😫😫😫😫😫
Thank you so much to Officer Gale last night for assisting me after I hit my first deer on Hwy 42. This has never happened to me before and I had no idea what to do but his calm demeanor put me right at ease:) Thanks again!
