Don't Be This Driver | School Bus Safety

๐Ÿ›‘ ๐Œ๐ž๐š๐ง๐ฌ ๐’๐“๐Ž๐ - Donโ€™t be this driver.

You must stop a minimum of 20 feet from a stopped school bus with its red lights flashing.

- This applies both to vehicles approaching from the rear and from the opposing lanes.โ€‹

- All lanes of traffic must stop for the school bus, except in opposing lanes if the highway is divided with a center median.

- No vehicle may proceed until the bus resumes motion and has turned off the red warning lights.

- The stop arm on the bus is an added communication to other drivers, but the lack of an extended stop arm is not reason to pass a bus whose red lights are flashing.

Letโ€™s have a safe school year!

We offer our deepest condolences to Officer Kurer and the Fond Du Lac Police Department.

Rest easy, Officer Joseph Kurer.

September 22, 2021 โ€“ 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 Oโ€™Brien Award while attending St. Maryโ€™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, โ€œOur entire Fond du Lac Police Department family mourns the passing of Officer Joseph Kurer. Our love and condolences go out to Josephโ€™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 Josephโ€™s family. Joseph will be missed by everyone here.โ€

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

The Sturgeon Bay Police Department received two separate reports of fraud involving a person posing as an employee trying to switch banking information. The scammer requests personnel to change their payroll direct deposit to a new account; this is done via email, from an address that does not belong to the real employee.

The most recent cases of fraud reported to the Sturgeon Bay Police Department involved Green Dot Bank. If youโ€™re unsure about a financial services company, check the FCA Register of regulated companies. If they are not on it, donโ€™t have anything to do with them.

Remember, never provide banking information or personal information over the phone or in an email. If you suspect something isnโ€™t right, pause and investigate further.

Lastly, report the attempt or the act to your local law enforcement agency so they can investigate as far as they can, and also alert the public.

Today we acknowledge and celebrate the contributions of women police officers who serve our communities. According the Bureau of Justice Statistics, women account for roughly 10% of the police force in the United States.

The first female police officer in the United States was most likely Marie Owens who was hired by the Chicago Police Department in 1891. Alice Wells, was the first American-born female police officer in the United States, being sworn in as an officer in 1910 by the Los Angeles Police Department.

Thank you to the women who serve in law enforcement!
