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.

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.

THINK BEFORE YOU SHARE: Back to School Photos

Back to school photos are filling social media feeds everywhere, often revealing personal information about your child. This information - school name, classroom, grade, age, etc. - can all be used by predators, scammers, and other people looking to endanger your child, family, or finances.

No matter your privacy settings or friends list, its best to keep personal information on the internet to the bare minimum.

Don't share:
❌ School name
❌ Age
❌ Teacher's name and grade
❌ Identifying features (height, weight, etc.)
❌ Overly personal information (think items related to passwords or security question answers, etc.)

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.

Our thoughts and prayers are with Officer Zeise’s family and friends, as well as the Brown Deer Police Department.

The Brown Deer Police Department regrets to inform you of the passing of Retired Police Officer Jill Zeise. Zeise served as an officer with Brown Deer from January 5th, 2003 to March 31st, 2020. During her 18 years with the department, she served as a Field Training Officer, Acting Shift Leader, School Resource Officer, Investigator, and Community Outreach Officer.

In 2015, Officer Zeise was diagnosed with breast cancer. On Sunday, May 9th, after battling the disease for years, Officer Zeise lost her courageous fight against breast cancer and passed peacefully surrounded by her family. Officer Zeise was a champion in the fight against breast cancer and publicly shared her personal battles and experience through social media and local media outlets.

The Brown Deer Police Department is mourning the loss of a friend, a colleague, and an inspiration to us all. Please keep Officer Zeise’s friends and family in your thoughts as they struggle through this difficult time.

Which one is the real one?

The one on the left was discovered by a neighboring agency during a traffic stop. It's not real, it's a BB gun. The one on the right is one of our old duty fi****ms.

When you take the time to zoom in and inspect the pictures, you can tell the differences. Now imagine you are 20 feet away, it's being pointed at you, a hand is covering part of it, and you don't have the lighting like in the pictures. How quickly could you tell then?

As the weather is finally starting to warm up, motorcyclists are coming out. They are harder to see than other vehicles and sometimes can not be easily heard. Remember to look out for them on the roadways and look twice before changing lanes.

For some of you the St. Patrick’s Day celebrations have already begun. That makes for a long day of drinking and a lot of alcohol. Plan ahead. Don’t drink and drive. There’s plenty of time to arrange for a ride home later from a sober friend. Or use and Uber, Lyft, or Taxi.

New Years Eve is easy to plan for, it’s December 31st every year. You take the time to plan the party, plan your outfit, now take the time to plan your ride.

If you are drinking, don’t drive. Find a ride. There are plenty of options. Taxis, Uber/Lyft, a sober friend, or stay the night where you are. The cost of a ride is cheap compared to fines, attorney fees, lawsuits, or jail time.

Happy New Year from the River Hills Police Department!

This afternoon the River Hills Police Dept. hosted a South East Wisconsin OWI Task Force Roll Call at our Park and Ride Lot. The South East task force is a collaboration of more than 40 law enforcement agencies in the South East part of the state. Our goal is to reduce the number of impaired drivers on the road through education and enforcement.

Prior to covid, this was one of the busier drinking nights of the year. We aren’t sure what this year will bring, but our departments will be out looking for these impaired drivers. If you are going to go out drinking, take an Uber/Lyft, get a taxi, or call a friend. Don’t drive.

The South East Task Force would also like to thank the members of the media that came out today to help spread this message for us.

Our department has had numerous cases of people who have had fentanyl on them or in their vehicle. We’ve also dealt with numerous people who have had it in their system. We’ve also had three instances where people who thought they had just co***ne, had their drugs test positive for fentanyl.

I feel like we shouldn’t have to say this, but drugs are bad, you shouldn’t use them. Now more than ever you don’t know what drugs were cut with or laced with. And adding things like fentanyl into the mix is why we are continuing to see overdose deaths grow each year.

The family is going through a lot while this officer begins their road to recovery. Money is being spent in ways they probably didn’t expect to spend it as family is in and out of the hospital. There’s also lost wages when the officer is unable to work any additional shifts or overtime. Any help you would considering giving would be greatly appreciated.

On Friday, 11-06-2020, a Village of Hartland Police Officer was shot in the line of duty. … Luke Joswick needs your support for Hartland Officer Recovery Fund

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.

What happened on Brown Deer Road on Saturday? Road closed all day. Car hit house, car in ditch near an electric pole. Our power was out for almost an hour.
