Fireworks Survey Results
If you ask someone what they think of Disney you will get some very passionate responses. Some love it or hate it. This is the case wit...h fireworks as demonstrated by the Facebook comments and survey results. Your local police departments are tasked with the impossible job of trying to make everyone happy in a situation where that is just not possible.
In a review of the data the trends show that the time of day, proximity to the 4th of July, location (rural vs urban) and the size of the firework are the main factors which people become more or less tolerant of fireworks. For example, lighting off an M-80 at 2am on June 15th in a residential subdivision upsets most people where a bottle rocket on July 3rd at 9pm most people seem to be willing to tolerate. As a number of police departments are working together on this, I believe you will see enforcement efforts that will reflect this mindset in a number of Fox Cities Communities this summer.
However, enforcement is only one part of this issue. We will also be trying to educate people on what is legal and what is not, how fireworks can be a health issue with some people/animals and how fireworks can cause damage/injuries. We are partnering with our local fire department to help get this word out as well.
The summertime and the 4th of July can be a time to celebrate with family and friends. If during celebrations and get-togethers everyone could stop for a moment and be considerate to their neighbors we believe everyone can have a more enjoyable summer.

Craig Kolbeck, Chairman
On Friday, May 11, 2018, the 28th annual Wisconsin Law Enforcement Memorial Ceremony will be held at noon at the Memorial site located on the Capitol grounds in Madison, WI. The annual ceremony, honoring and remembering Wisconsin law enforcement officers killed in the line of duty, is held in correlation with National Police Week activities. In 1962, President John F. Kennedy proclaimed May 15 “National Peace Officer’s Memorial Day” and National Police Week as the calendar week which encompasses May 15. National Police Week 2018 is May 13 until May 19.
There will be a squad procession involving officers from across Wisconsin that will leave Olin Park at 11:15 AM and arrive at the Wisconsin State Capitol. Olin Park is located off the Highway 12/18 beltline in Madison.
During this year’s ceremony four names will be officially added to the Memorial, bringing the total amount of Wisconsin law enforcement officers listed on the Memorial to 277. These four names are located on panel IV of the Memorial. Two of those names were discovered through historical research. On September 6, 1895, Sheboygan Police Department Special Officer Charles Freiherr was struck and killed by a switch engine as he was checking the rail yard for trespassers. On February 13, 1943, Milwaukee Police Department Lieutenant Albert Grosskopf responded, as the Incident Commander, to an apartment fire in a four story building. While on the scene, Lt. Grosskopf suddenly collapsed. He was rushed to an area hospital where he died of a heart attack.
On March 22, 2017, Everest Metropolitan Police Department Detective Jason Weiland responded to a domestic disturbance related active shooter incident where three civilians were killed. As Detective Weiland attempted to set up an outer perimeter around the suspect's apartment building, Detective Weiland was shot and fatally wounded.
On April 11, 2017, Wisconsin State Patrol Trooper Anthony Borostowski was on patrol and lost control of his patrol squad. Trooper Borostowski’s patrol squad left the road and struck a tree. Trooper Borostowski was fatally injured in the crash.
Ceremony speakers include Wisconsin Attorney General Brad Schimel and Wisconsin State Patrol Superintendent J.D. Lind.
Additionally, members of the Brown County Sheriff’s Office, Eau Claire Police Department, Fitchburg Police Department, Manitowoc County Sheriff’s Office, Menomonee Falls Police Department, Two Rivers Police Department, Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources and Wisconsin State Patrol Honor Guards will post guards at the memorial site starting at sunrise. Similar to the military guards at the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier at Arlington National Cemetery in Arlington, Virginia, two Law Enforcement Honor Guard members will continually encircle the memorial site from approximately 5:30 AM until the memorial ceremony at noon.
