WI Statute 946.66 states, "Whoever knowingly makes a false complaint regarding the conduct of a law enforcement officer is subject to a Class A forfeiture."

Recognizing Officer's Good Deeds

Just as we recognize that conflicts between citizens and agency employees can arise, we also realize that there are times when employees go above and beyond the call of duty. Law Enforcement employees, like everyone else, appreciate it when their good deeds are noticed. Too often they are remembered for the traffic tickets they issue or the arrests they have to make, and not for the thousands of helping hands they extend.

If a deputy or employee of the St. Croix County Sheriff’s Office provides services that you feel they should be commended for, please write the Special Services Lieutenant a letter or note to that effect, giving your feelings on what the deputy or employee has done that deserves commendation. The Lieutenant will see that it gets to the employee and that a copy is placed in the employee's personnel file. This boosts morale and encourages them and all other deputies and employees of the department to be more positive about themselves and the service they provide. We are proud of the good relationship we share with the community.
