Did you know the Stoughton Police Department has started a memorial scholarship in honor of Patrolman Paul Kraby?

The Paul Kraby Memorial Scholarship:
This fund has been started in memory of Stoughton Patrolman Paul Kraby who was killed in the Line-of-Duty on September 30, 1934. His murder has gone unsolved but his sacrifice will not be forgotten.
The fund will be used as a scholarship for a Stoughton area student going into Law Enforcement. Our goal is to raise enough money to fund a scholarship each school year.

If you are interested in donating to this scholarship and supporting a local high school student looking to pursue a career in law enforcement, please visit the link below to make an online donation. You can also donate at the dispatch window 24/7.
Thank you for your support in helping a local student further their education.

With Halloween just around the corner, the City of Stoughton is releasing safety guidelines and recommendations for celebrating during the current COVID-19 pandemic.

We strongly discourage people to participate in many traditional Halloween activities. Recognizing some will not get the communication or choose to celebrate traditionally, we have outlined additional best practices to minimize exposure. Our hope is the community and businesses will find alternative ways to enjoy Halloween safely.

Dane County Public Health has instructed us not to enforce COVID-19 related orders locally. Any violations should be directed to Dane County Public Health.

The City of Stoughton Trick or Treat hours will be from 6:00 to 8:00 p.m. on Saturday, October 31, 2020. Participation is at your own risk and discretion. The City of Stoughton does not promote this event. The Department of Health Services (DHS) and the Center for Disease Control (CDC) encourage you to avoid traditional trick-or-treating from neighbor to neighbor. Participating in Halloween events could contribute to the spread of COVID-19.

More information, including CDC and Dane County Public Health guidelines, are posted on our website: https://www.ci.stoughton.wi.us/index.asp?SEC=61C67EE0-E057-4068-9AE7-D62409AC0B1E&DE=8F415CAF-4B90-469B-8856-918F4A056CDE.

October is Pedestrian Safety Month. A traffic-related pedestrian death occurs every 84 minutes in the U.S. and an average of about 60 pedestrians are killed each year in Wisconsin. Pedestrian safety is a two-way street. Whether you’re a driver or pedestrian, follow these simple safety tips to keep yourself and others safe:

👁👁 Pay attention: By simply obeying traffic rules and being aware of vehicles and people in your vicinity, you greatly reduce your chances of being in a collision.

📱 Don’t drive or walk distracted: Distraction changes the way we react and behave. Whether motorist or pedestrian, put down the phone and pay attention to what’s ahead.

🍷 Don’t drive or walk impaired: Alcohol and drug impairment can have deadly consequences. Nearly half of all traffic-related pedestrian fatalities involve an impaired driver or impaired pedestrian.

🌙 Be alert at night: 3 out of 4 pedestrian fatalities occur in the dark. Pedestrians, make yourself more visible by wearing bright, reflective clothing and consider carrying a flashlight.

This year’s National “Move Over” Day campaign takes place Saturday, October 17, 2020.

Some Stoughton history that was honored today.

Paul Anderson Kraby was born in Toten, Norway, in 1889. He was one of nine children and immigrated to America at the age of 17. He lived with his uncle Albert Burull of Stoughton, WI who sponsored Paul and became a naturalized citizen. In 1917 he joined the United States Army and served in France during WWI. After the war, he returned to Stoughton, rejoining his American family, the Burulls. He became employed at the Mandt Wagon Works where his Uncle Albert worked. Paul was described as a man of strong and disciplined character, was kind, affable, generous, with a sense of humor, and always a gentleman. He married Clarice Torgeson and was supportive of her and stepson.

Life changed in the late 1920’s and early 1930’s bringing both hardships and evil to the Stoughton community. The 1929’s depression, the 1928 Prohibition, and the unusual drought conditions for farmers added to the already declining economy of no money and no jobs. This combination, including liquor, was, in many cases, disquieting for many residents and invariably brought new stresses and challenges to Stoughton’s small police force.

In 1934, Paul joined the Stoughton Police Department and began to help fight the growing evil and illegal activities evolving in the community. With his keen observations, he began to discover evidence of local crimes including bootlegging and theft. His discoveries while on duty, and his knowledge of the local participants in their illegal activities, ultimately led to his being ambushed and murdered around 1:15 a.m. on September 30, 1934 while he walked his beat near the A.E. Skinner Fuel Company, by the railroad depot on E Main St. An arrest was made, and the defendant, Joseph Pliner, was held in jail for seven weeks until a trial was held at which the defendant was found not guilty. Incredibly, Paul’s murder, with no satisfactory continuing hunt for justice, was quickly forgotten.

But, today, and every September 30th from here on, we will remember and recognize Patrolman Paul Kraby for his sacrifice. His service to the City of Stoughton will not be forgotten.

Missed seeing the flags line Main Street today, but I wish ALL of you a great Labor Day. Thank you for your service. Be safe out there!! ❤️🇺🇸💙❤️🇺🇸💙❤️🇺🇸💙❤️🇺🇸💙❤️🇺🇸💙❤️🇺🇸💙
Hope this helps.
With the Covid stuff going on and more restaurants delivering food I’ve noticed a lot more delivery drivers that fly through residential neighborhoods not paying much attention to the road or kids on bikes except to look for the address they’re delivering too. Just curious if others have noticed the increase in crazy delivery drivers. Most of them now don’t have signs on the tops but I’ve watched them delivering to neighbors in the area. Probably so people can’t call them into their employer.
I read lots of posts on FB regarding the Police Department, most good, some just stupid. . I just want to say that I appreciate everything you all are doing. Thank you. 🥰
Thank you ALL for your service! God bless you! ❤️🇺🇸💙
Had to share this with you guys! I think we could all use a good laugh right about now! https://www.facebook.com/822074611243955/posts/2876856969099032/?sfnsn=mo&d=n&vh=e
Have you guys just given up on parking enforcement or what? Someone’s piggy bank is pretty lucky to be full today.
Any news updates on 4am Stabbing in Stoughton today?
so......while i appreciate the hard work your department does....i must admit in these times it is very disappointing to see the department still enforcing parking violations to cars that have not been moved for 3 or more days. nobody can actually GO anywhere. what is the point punishing people for staying inside........and what are people who live downtown supposed to do.....run outside every other day and park their cars two spaces over? my husband literally watched tires being chalked in a city lot....this seems especially cruel--- in these times---- is all i'm saying. it's not like there is regular commerce downtown and parking is at a premium. 🤔
So everyone is on stay at home directed by the governor. Everything is literally shutdown expect what is deemed essential but it’s ok for a bunch of teenagers or maybe just out of they’re teenage days to go hang out at Walmart or other parking lots.
