The Fourth of July is just around the corner and with it comes an increase of calls regarding fireworks. We often get asked what’s illegal. Basically, any firework that explodes or leaves the ground is illegal to purchase, possess or use without a permit. That includes backyard favorites like bottle rockets, roman candles, motors and even firecrackers.

Most fireworks that don’t go boom or leave the ground are OK without a permit. That includes smoke bombs, cones, fountains, caps, confetti poppers and, you guessed it, snakes and sparklers.

The safety of our youth is one of our highest priorities. The Door County Sheriff's Office is fortunate to work in collaboration with local law enforcement partners and school districts to address issues our youth are facing today. As we all are aware technology is a huge part of everyones day to day life. Our youth are no different and thats why it's so important for us to talk to them about their use of technology on a regular basis.

One of the issues we have been seeing more of is the misuse of social media apps. We have created a quick reference informational sheet of some of the the current apps being used. It also has some really good links to webstites with great information for parents & guardians.

During Click It or Ticket May 20 – June 2, our law enforcement officers will patrol in greater numbers for longer hours – not to write tickets, but to ensure motorists are safely complying with traffic laws. Think about this: the 10 percent of motorists who fail to buckle up account for nearly half the drivers and passengers killed in WI traffic crashes each year.

National Correctional Officer’s Week - May 5th -May 11th, 2019

Correctional employees are a vital part of our Public Safety team in Door County. Historically, individuals working in jails have been viewed as "guards". In recent years, the duties of these deputies have become increasingly complex and demanding. They are called upon to fill, simultaneously, custodial, supervisory and counseling roles.

The professionalism, dedication and courage exhibited by these deputies throughout the performance of these demanding and often conflicting roles deserve our utmost respect.

The important work of the deputies assigned to the correctional division often does not receive the recognition which it deserves. It is appropriate that we honor and recognize the many contributions and accomplishments of these men and women who are a vital component of Law Enforcement services in Door County.

It's our honor and privilege to work with such a great group of people!

So many individuals make this program successful in Door County. Members of the Sheriff's Office and Sturgeon Bay Police Department serve as Big Brothers Big Sisters and truly enjoy being part of such a great program.

If you have an hour a week to spare, please consider becoming a mentor. There are kids waiting to be matched here in Door County. Trust me it will not only change the little's life but you will find it to be one of the most rewarding things you can do.

Prescription Drug Take-Back Day

On April 27, 2019, The Door County Sheriff's Office in collaboration with the Wisconsin Department of Justice (DOJ) are hosting a Prescription Drug Take Back Day in Door County.

The Prescription Drug Take-Back Day goal is to provide a safe, convenient, and responsible means of disposal of prescription medications, while also educating the general public about the potential for abuse of these medications. Unused prescription medications in homes create a public health and safety concern, because they can be accidentally ingested, stolen, misused, and abused.

Unused or expired medicine should never be flushed or poured down the drain. Removing potentially dangerous pharmaceutical substances from our state's medicine cabinets helps to prevent them from going into our water supply. Water reclamation facilities are not designed to remove all of them and trace amounts of pharmaceuticals are showing up in rivers and lakes around the world.
No businesses allowed. All waste pharmaceuticals must be generated by a household

Please Review What is Allowed Below

Bring: Prescription (controlled and non-controlled) and over-the-counter medications, ointments, patches, non-aerosol sprays, inhalers, creams, vials and pet medications.

Do Not Bring: Illegal drugs, needles/sharps, aerosol cans, bio-hazardous materials (anything containing a bodily fluid or blood), mercury thermometers, personal care products (shampoo, soaps, lotions, sunscreens, etc...), household hazardous waste (paint, pesticides, oil, gas).

• Participants may dispose of solid, non-liquid medication(s) by removing the medication from its container and disposing of it directly into a disposal box or into a clear sealable plastic bag. Plastic pill containers should not be collected. Blister packages are acceptable without the medications being removed.

• Liquids will be accepted during this initiative. However, the liquids, creams and sprays must be in their original packaging and evenly distributed within the boxes of collected solid prescription medications. Liquids without the original packaging will not be accepted.

• Illicit substances such as marijuana or methamphetamine are not a part of this initiative and should not be placed in collection containers.

• All participants must retain possession of their own medication during the surrender process. Law enforcement personnel should not handle the medications at any time.
