Sergeant Joe Maurer heads up the Department's drug enforcement efforts. While all patrol officers are trained in drug interdiction tactics, more in-depth investigations are handled by this unit, which consists of one Sergeant and three specially trained officers. The unit utilizes a number of drug investigation tactics and specialty equipment.
In 2015, the Department will be combining its drug investigation resources with the Monona Police Department. This shared drug unit will be mutually beneficial to both agencies, as we can share resources, equipment and information. This partnership, along with the fact that both departments have well trained and highly functional K9 Units, will provide for a very effective and cost efficient drug enforcement program.
