As the weather is warming up, now is the perfect time for a reminder as the spring projects start. Make sure your addresses are readable on your mailbox. That means at night and from a distance. While we do our best to know where specific residents and addresses are located, the easiest way to locate a house is by a properly marked mailbox.

If the fire department, or us, are responding to an emergency we will probably be traveling faster than normal. We will have lights flashing, which creates reflections and shadowing at night. And we will be talking to dispatch and other responding units to collect and pass along information. The fire department also serves all 7 North Shore communities and they may not all be familiar with exactly where they are going. We may also have mutual aid squads responding with us from neighboring agencies that are not familiar with the village.

Please make sure your mailbox is marked. Preferably with reflective numbers. And large enough to see from a distance. Using numbers that are the same color as the mailbox or with overly fancy designs make them hard to read as well.

Due to the construction on Green Bay and Brown Deer roads, we are seeing a noticeable increase in traffic on both Bradley and Range Line roads. While these are long term construction projects, we do have some changes we have to make for the safety of our residents, pedestrians, people working throughout the village, and traffic in general. Until these projects are complete we will no longer be granting permission to park on Range Line Rd or Bradley. This includes our department granting permission for special events and contractors. If you have contractors coming to your house that typically park on one of those roads, they will need to start parking in your driveway or make different arrangements.

We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause, but for safety we need to make these changes, and we appreciate everyone's cooperation.

Did you know there are 10 Fire/EMS Dispatch Centers in Milwaukee County? Daily, resources from municipalities throughout the County are crossing municipal borders to assist others for life-threatening events through a system known as mutual aid. The 10 dispatch centers, in cooperation with Milwaukee County, recently implemented a software to connect each center digitally allowing rapid sharing of resource requests. The new software replaces manual voice requests by phone or radio and will save time when seconds count! #911

The River Hills Police Department has a suspect in custody in regards to our last post. Third shift officers located a subject on a bicycle that was in the area of the previous burglary and also some additional entry to autos and trespassing complaints. The subject took off from the officers, but was located after a perimeter was set up involving numerous other North Shore agencies.

If you have any video of the subject last night, or nights prior, entering your property, trying to enter your home or garage, or anything else that seemed suspicious please let us know and get that video to us. This should be a reminder to follow the safety tips from the last post and keep your homes and vehicles locked up and secure.

An extra thanks to Village of Bayside Police Department, Brown Deer Police Department, and Fox Point Police Department for their assistance this morning.

We are currently investigating a burglary that happened within the last week. A subject entered a home through an unsecured door to the garage. He then made his way through the home and went through an office before being scared off by the homeowner. The homeowners were home the entire time this occurred.

This is a good reminder for residents to make sure things are properly secured. Don’t leave garage doors or doors to your home open or unlocked.

Remove keys and purses from your vehicles. Whether parked in a garage or outside. If your vehicle is left outside, remove any garage door openers or house keys.

Don’t leave items of value sitting in your yard or out in the open in your vehicles.

Use appropriate lighting at night so that any suspicious activity can be seen.

A camera system is highly recommended. Not only as a deterrent, but as evidence if a crime occurs at your home or even a neighbors.

And most importantly, if you see something, say something. There are a lot of times we hear hours or days later that someone saw a person acting suspicious or a vehicle parked or driving through an area that just didn’t seem right. We would rather stop out with the subject(s) to find out it was nothing, rather than have you or a neighbor become a victim of a crime.

Spring ahead! Remember to not only change your clocks today, but change your smoke detector batteries. Remember to replace your smoke detectors and carbon monoxide detectors when necessary as well.

Our department is currently investigating a utility distraction scam burglary that occurred yesterday. During this a subject claimed to be investigating a water main break that may have contaminated the homes water. At least two subjects were involved that were wearing work vests and using radios to communicate.

Before letting any unsolicited and unrequested workers into your home, verify who they are. If they are legitimate workers, they won’t mind waiting a couple minutes for us to get there and verify they are legit workers. We would also rather have a conversation with them, than investigate a burglary later.

If you mention calling us and they leave, try to safely get a vehicle description and direction of travel.

Any time we get a chance to talk to residents about their property or home security, one of the first things we ask is if they have cameras on their homes or property. Unfortunately, most the time it’s been after they are a victim of a crime and they don’t have any.

With Black Friday coming up, now is the perfect time to look for deals on the various systems out there. We do our best to not support specific brands and stores, but Ring does have some very good sales at numerous stores. When talking to residents that do have cameras, the people with Ring system have appeared to have the easiest to operate phone apps and best quality video.

Whatever type of system or brand you go with, it is highly recommended to have a camera system for not only a deterrent, but evidence if a crime is committed. If you don’t have one, considering shopping around this holiday season.

Our thoughts and prayers go out to all of those involved and their families. If you have any information please reach out to Waukesha Police Department

As we have talked about in the past, vehicle thefts have become a major problem in Milwaukee County over the past few years. In the past, the problem typically involves unlocked vehicles and vehicles with keys/key fobs left in them. Due to a discovered design flaw with Kias and Hyundai’s, they have now become the easy target.

With all vehicles make sure you are removing valuables, keeping garage door openers and keys out of them, and keeping your doors locked. If you have the option, park the vehicle in a locked garage. If you have to park the vehicle outside, we consider theft deterrents like the Club. While they also can be defeated, they take away the quick easy target that these thiefs are looking for.

And most of all, if you see something, say something. We are happy to check the area if something looks suspicious.

Our thoughts and prayers go out to Officer Kurer’s family and the Fond Du Lac Police Department during this tough time. We are sorry for your loss.

September 22, 2021 – It is with great sadness and a heavy heart that Chief Aaron Goldstein informs you of the passing of Officer Joseph Kurer, age 26, due to complications from COVID-19.

Officer Kurer was sworn-in as a City of Fond du Lac Police Officer on August 6, 2018. Officer Kurer was a dedicated and valued member of our Department. Joseph was a member of the Tactical Field Force Team, Honor Guard Unit, Domestic Violence Intervention Team, and earlier this year was certified as a Field Training Officer.

Officer Kurer was also an Aviation Operations Noncommissioned Officer (Sergeant) with the United States Army, Wisconsin National Guard. Prior to joining the Fond du Lac Police Department Joseph was a Community Service Officer with the City of West Bend Police Department.

Officer Kurer was awarded a City of Fond du Lac Police Department Life Saving Award, Army Commendation Medal, Army Achievement Medal, Air Force Sergeants Association NCO of the Year as a Cadet Non-Commissioned Officer in the Civil Air Patrol, and Sister Michaela O’Brien Award while attending St. Mary’s Springs High School.

Officer Kurer is being escorted from the hospital to the funeral home by a law enforcement procession and Officers will stand vigil by his side until the services are complete.

Officer Kurer is survived by his wife and two children, one born the night before Joseph passed away. Joseph is also survived by his parents and sister.

Chief Goldstein said, “Our entire Fond du Lac Police Department family mourns the passing of Officer Joseph Kurer. Our love and condolences go out to Joseph’s wife and children and all those with whom he served. We, as a police department family will do everything possible to continue to provide support and comfort to Joseph’s family. Joseph will be missed by everyone here.”

Funeral arrangements with Law Enforcement Honors are pending and out of respect for the family no additional information is available at this time.

20 years later, these are the 9/11 photos we will never forget

As each generation goes on, you have moments that the people who lived it can tell you exactly what they were doing when they found out the news. The attack on Pearl Harbor, the end of the World Wars, and the Challenger explosion are a few examples from the past generations. Twenty years ago we we had one of those moments.

Images captured on the day of the deadliest foreign attack on U.S. soil tell a story of tragedy, survival.

Critics question design of Kia, Hyundai vehicles in massive theft spike

This has been a major issue since last winter. In our opinion this is a major design flaw with the Kia’s and Hyundai’s, and the amount of time it takes from when the window is broken until the car is driving away is extremely fast.

If you own a Hyundai or Kia, in the least get a club for it and use it every time you park it. The club can still be defeated, but it takes more time to do that and takes away the ease that they typically get from stealing these cars.

"There's a mechanism that they manipulate and it could be as easily as manipulated with a USB cord," a police spokesperson said.

Today, May 15, is National Peace Officers Memorial Day. In 1962, President John F. Kennedy issued a proclamation declaring the week of May 15th as Police Week and May 15th as Peace Officers Memorial Day to honor the memories of peace officers killed in the line of duty

Today, 295 peace officers, who sacrificed their lives in 2020, are being honored and remembered. Their names will be added to the National Peace Officers Memorial Wall in Washington D.C.

Although the names of these officers are and will be placed on the National Peace Officers Memorial Wall, their memories live on each day in our hearts.

Today is National Move Over Day. North Shore Police Officers and Firefighters urge you to slow down and move over when you see flashing lights on the roadway.

Did you know that every state has a law requiring you to slow down and, when possible, move over if you see flashing lights on the side of the road? Traffic-related incidents continue to be one of the leading causes of death among on-duty law enforcement officers.

What do you need to do if you see flashing emergency lights?

*Immediately slow down;
*Move over if you can safely do so; and
*Switch to a lane that is not immediately next to the emergency vehicle, if possible.

Help spread the word among your family, friends, and on social media, .

Hello. I've been doing some research into this app and how it works. I figured since they are using a "quote" from one of your SGTs I'd ask if this is for real. I know that these "quotes" are not always true but since this app concerns safety I thought I'd double check. Just trying to get info for an informed decision.
