On 07/19/20, the Village of McFarland Police Department received a report of a hate incident that occurred during a social justice meeting, via zoom. We have investigated the complaint to the extent of our resources. At this time we believe that the suspects reside out of state. After consulting with the Dane County DA, and due to the interstate nature of this incident, we have forwarded it to the FBI for further investigation. Please contact the McFarland Police Department if you have any information.

Hi everyone! The bike pictured below has been chained to the bike rack at the Library for several days now. We've been asked to remove it, but we thought we'd post this first to give the owner a chance to remove it. If it's yours, you've got until Friday afternoon to remove it.

Thanks!

May 10th - 16th is National Police Week in the United States. In 1962, President John F. Kennedy signed Public Law 87-726 designating May 15 as Peace Officers' Memorial Day, and the week in which May 15 falls as National Police Week, in honor and remembrance of those that have died in the line of duty while serving as a law enforcement officer.

Although this year will be quite different as there will be no in-person memorial services, this week the Wisconsin LEDR Team (Law Enforcement Death Response Team) is releasing one video per day in honor and remembrance of a Wisconsin Law Enforcement Officer that has died in the line of duty.

The LEDR Team was highly involved with our department when we lost Officer Ryan Copeland in 2015. They are an outstanding group of men and women who dedicate their professional and off-duty lives to assisting police agencies when in such a time of need.

Our department participated in their project, thus one of the videos will contain interviews related to Officer Copeland's passing. We encourage you to take a few minutes to watch them as the week goes on. Again, a new one will be added each day throughout the week. As of today, there are three videos posted, as they began posting them on Sunday.

Please see the links below for these and another video in honor of National Police Week and those that serve.

Hello all! Trying hard not to inundate everyone with too much info...that said, some important info was released by Public Health this morning regarding the Governor's orders, and what should be reported to local law enforcement vs. to Public Health directly.

In short, complaints or concerns involving prohibited gatherings of individuals in a non-business setting, should be reported to local law enforcement. For residents residing within the Village of McFarland, the contact number is 608-838-3151. Only in an emergency situation should 911 be utilized for this type of report.

Complaints or concerns involving essential and non-essential businesses and related practices, should be reported directly to Public Health of Madison and Dane County via email at:

[email protected]

PHMDC can be contacted via phone, ONLY IF THE COMPLAINANT DOES NOT HAVE ACCESS TO EMAIL, at 608-243-0587.

PHMDC will follow-up as appropriate.

Good afternoon. We've recently been receiving calls regarding daycare facilities and the manner in which children are being escorted while walking or riding in multi-child strollers while outside of facilities, specifically in regard to social distancing.

Please note that according to the Department of Child and Family Services, Public Health and the corresponding orders and documents that have been issued by the Governor's Office, in reality the main restrictions that apply to daycare facilities regarding social distancing are that all parents and individuals picking up/dropping off children MUST observe social distancing requirements.

Regarding interaction between daycare children and staff, or between daycare children and other daycare children, there is currently no enforceable social distancing requirement. It is recommended, but not required.

More information on this can be found on the Department of Child and Family Services website, and also within Governor's Orders # 3, # 6 and the most current Safer at Home order.

This info is of course valid as of this moment, and could be subject to change in the future. Please continue to monitor orders or information from the Governor's Office, Public Health and any other authoritative entities of relevance to the COVID situation for updated information.

Thanks,
Chief Sherven

Governor's Emergency Order #12 (Safer at Home Order)

Good afternoon everyone…I hope this post finds you as well as can be expected! While my intent is to advise you of the Governor’s new orders, I want to begin by saying how much I admire the resiliency of this community, and the genuine concern for one another that I’ve witnessed over the past few weeks.

I’ve seen people offer and readily give of their own hard-to-find supplies to others; I’ve seen people come up with and promote creative ways to interact virtually as a community; and, in general I’ve seen people helping others however they can. I’ve said it many times, and I’ll say it again…I’m incredibly proud to be a part of this awesome community.

As many of you already know, the Governor’s Office issued Emergency Order #12 this morning, known as the Safer at Home Order. I would ask that each of us thoroughly review it and adhere to its requirements as best we can and as they apply to our individual lives and situations. Note that this is the most comprehensive order issued to date and many important changes are included.

I’ve so far been pleased with how our community has thus far absorbed and adhered to the recommendations and orders. Yes, there are a few areas in which as a community we could be doing a better job, and I expect that as this becomes our “new normal”, we will become more accustomed to our temporarily altered lifestyles. We all need to do our best to work through this situation together, and I’m confident that we can and will.

Please also know that as always, we are here for you 24/7, and are ready to assist however we can. Although our day to day operations and the means by which we answer some calls and communicate with you have been slightly altered, we remain a fully functional community resource ready to help you however we can.

Good afternoon everyone. As of today's date, until further notice the Village will suspend its alternate side parking and general winter parking regulations for the remainder of the spring. Should a major winter storm affect our area in the near future, we would ask that you look to our page or the Village's website for any instruction or information that would indicate otherwise.

Governor's Executive Order #8 Prohibition of Mass Gatherings

Late this afternoon, the Governor's Office issued Executive Order #8 relating to the prohibition of mass gatherings. Please note that this new order now includes gatherings of 10 or more individuals both inside and outside.

The McFarland Police Department asks for your help in assuring compliance with this order. It is to be taken seriously, and its important to know that there are both civil and potentially criminal penalties associated with violating it.

Our department remains dedicated to assisting you however we can and being a resource for our community as we all work through this together. It would very much so be our preference not to have to resort to enforcement actions. That said, compliance is absolutely necessary and law enforcement agencies across the state have been tasked with the responsibility of assuring adherence to the order.

Please click the below link to view Executive Order #8. Also, please contact us if we can be of assistance to you.
