The Washington County Sheriffs Office employees volunteer their own time in different activities that help our community. We also partner with all of our municipalities and agencies throughout the county.
Cedar Ridge Community Outreach
Deputy Killey and K-9 Deputy Gunner visited Cedar Ridge for an educational hour. He explained the K-9 program and how important Gunner is to the Sheriff's Office.
In 2013 canine assistance was provided to all full time police departments within Washington County as well as the Wisconsin Dept of Justice-Division of Criminal Investigation (DCI), the United States Department of Justice-Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA), and the United States Postal Inspectors Office. In addition eight school searches were completed at the request of school districts throughout Washington County.
Icor Mini-Caliber Robot
Deputy Hanson gave a presentation at Cedar Ridge in January on the Sheriff's Office Icoe Mini-Caliber Robot. This robot is used in tactical instances where it is safer to use the robot than to send in a deputy.
Deputy Hanson discusses the robot with a resident.
Residents get a hands-on review of the robot.
The robot is directed to "roam" the presentation room under the guidance of Deputy Hanson.
Child Identification and Fingerprinting ~
Our ace deputies are often seen at county functions assisting with child identification and fingerprinting.
In June they were at Cabela's Outdoor Adventure Day. This annual event encourages outdoor enthusiasts of all ages to brush up on their archery, fishing and camping skills to gear up for their next family adventure.
Photos of fingerprinting event:
Everyone had a wonderful time and many parents now have photo and fingerprint id cards for their children.
