It is very bittersweet that we share with you our Communications Supervisor, Nancy Zubko, retired last Thursday. Nancy (in the middle of the photo) was with the Sheriff’s Office for over 30 Years! She has helped countless citizens through some challenging times as the calm and steady voice on the other end of those 911 calls.

Nancy will be miss by everyone here at her OCSO family and we wish her all the best in retirement. Her last 10-42 is the audio with this photo of her and some of the Dispatchers.

Deer are on the move this time of year. They are most active in the evening and early morning.

If a collision is unavoidable:
☑️ Brake firmly and stay in your lane.
☑️ Avoid sudden lane changes, which can result in loss of vehicle control.

Great information from the Wisconsin Department of Transportation.

Father’s Day Weekend!

Many fathers become Deputy Sheriffs because they want to provide a safe and secure community in which to raise their children. This selfless act carries to other families as these fathers find themselves in situations where they need to offer guidance and counseling to some and to put their lives on the line to protect others.

All of us have or have had fathers who have made a major impact on our lives. Whether that father was a farmer, trade worker, coach, teacher, neighbor or deputy sheriff.

Our fathers have taught us all life lessons and lifted us to new heights. Please take time this Sunday to remember your father.

Happy Father’s Day!

D-DAY, Tuesday June 6th 1944. REMEMBER YOUR HISTORY. Today we remember 77 years ago when Allied forces joined together to liberate occupied France.

During World War II (1939-1945), the Battle of Normandy, which lasted from June 1944 to August 1944, resulted in the Allied liberation of Western Europe from N**i Germany’s control. Codenamed Operation Overlord, the battle began on June 6, 1944, also known as D-Day, when some 156,000 American, British and Canadian forces landed on five beaches along a 50-mile stretch of the heavily fortified coast of France’s Normandy region. The invasion was one of the largest amphibious military assaults in history and required extensive planning. Prior to D-Day, the Allies conducted a large-scale deception campaign designed to mislead the Germans about the intended invasion target. By late August 1944, all of northern France had been liberated, and by the following spring the Allies had defeated the Germans. The Normandy landings have been called the beginning of the end of war in Europe.

To the Citizens of the OC,

Today marks the beginning of National Police Week. In 1962, President Kennedy proclaimed May 15 as National Peace Officers Memorial Day and the calendar week in which May 15 falls, as National Police Week.

Police Week pays recognition to those law officers who have lost their lives in the line of duty for others.

Please say a prayer for our hard working Oconto County Deputies as well as our teammates with the Oconto, Oconto Falls, Gillett, Lena, and Suring Police Departments, the Wisconsin State Patrol and the Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources who put their lives on the line every day to keep our community safe.

If you could also take a moment to reflect, remember and pray for those who have given their lives in the line of duty as the ultimate sacrifice, in service to their citizens all across our great nation.

You have one of the very best law enforcement teams working for your countywide. I am honored to serve as your Sheriff with a group of engaged professionals. The support we receive from our community is second to none. We know the hard work and dedication does not go unnoticed. We thank you for that.

God Bless the OC and we will continue to answer the call in an effort to keep us all safe. We are at your service 24/7/365.

Sincerely,

Sheriff Skarban
