Attention Fisherman (and everyone else). We understand this is prime time for Smelt and Sucker fishing, but we must remind you of the State Order that does not allow gathering of groups. If you are fishing on the pier or bridges, YOU MUST MAINTAIN SOCIAL DISTANCING!

We have received complaints of groups not obeying the State Order. We do not want to shut down the pier to fisherman, but we will if we have to. Fishing is a great way for people to get outdoors, but we ask you to please obey the laws.

Heads up tomorrow along the lakeshore.

Increasing winds will cause waves to build later tonight and continue on Thursday when waves are expected to reach 9 to 13 feet. With lake levels running near record highs, the high waves are expected to cause minor flooding along the Lake Michigan shoreline. If see flooding along the lake, please report it to the National Weather Service in Green Bay or your local law enforcement agency.

***Did You Know?***
Did you know that your old, deactivated cell phone can still dial 911? Well it can. This can be great for someone in an emergency situation.

It can also be a nuisance. Many people give their old phones to their children to play with. This leads to accidental 911 hang ups. To be safe, we as law enforcement must investigate every 911 call that comes into the dispatch center.

So far in 2019, the Kewaunee Police Department has handled 142, 911 hang ups. Not all of these are from deactivated cell phones, but some are.

If we can eliminate even a small portion of these, it would free up time for us to handle other things. So please think twice before giving your old phone to a child to play with. Thank you.

There is still time to get your applications in.  They are due January 3, 2020.  Please spread the word!!

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!
Are there any rules or regulations about shooting B.B. guns in town?
G'morning.....these two dogs are a constant pain in the butt coming here frequently.....they have collars, maybe tags? Seem to be coming here from south or southwest of my property, leaving messes for my dog. I keep my dog at home, and I'd appreciate it if others would do the same. I am sure my neighbor blames their piles on my girl, and I can assure, they are not. These two always run together. So I hope you are able to locate the owners, and remind them to keep their dogs home, please. Thanks.
What is the proper protocol when your neighbor blocks your driveway?
To the officers of this department---THANK YOU! You folks protect the lives of those in the community day in and day out. There come times when difficult choices need to be made while you are on duty. Regardless of the outcome of those choices, I faithfully stand behind and support you. Thank you (and your families) for your selfless sacrifices to protect Kewaunee and the citizens therein. Stay safe out there!
