(1/6/12) The Jackson County Sheriff’s Office is assisting the newly formed Ho-Chunk Nation Police Department by issuing some of the necessary tools they need to begin operation. Sheriff Waldera has offered to loan Chief Libke mobile data computers, portable radios and access to the department’s record management system.
The Ho-Chunk Nation has established their own police department and is in the process of implementing patrol vehicles to assist in their daily operations. The tools offered to the Nation will greatly assist their effort in getting started.
"The Ho-Chunk Nation has been making positive strides toward building our police department by partnering with the community to make Ho-Chunk tribal trust properties a better place to live, visit and conduct business. We are extremely grateful for this assistance from Jackson County Sheriff's Office," Ho-Chunk Police Chief Daniel Libke said, "their support means a lot."
