Meet & Greet event for Silver Lake residents with Sheriff’s Dept. Tuesday

kcsd-doorA Meet and Greet for Silver Lake residents to become more familiar with the Kenosha County Sheriff’s Department will take place at Silver Lake Village Hall on Tuesday, June 16, from 10 a.m. to noon.

Cake and coffee will be served. Residents can meet with Sheriff Dave Beth and the officers that will be patrolling the village. You will also be able to see the new squad car.

The Sheriff’s Department is expected to take over patrol of the village starting later this week after the anticipated approval of a contract between the village and the County Board by the county on Tuesday.

The village has been operating its own police department. With approval of the contract, the village will dissolve that department.

    This is a wonderful opportunity for Silver Lake residents to come and meet the officers that will be protecting our village, some of them that we already know from their previous jobs with Silver Lake Police Dept. They might have changed from a blue shirt to a brown uniform shirt, but their dedication to us remains. Good luck to all the officers. Welcome to Silver Lake!

  2. Police Presence says:

    My neighborhood is very pleased with the arrival of the Kenosha County deputies, and we thank our former police officers for their years of service. Our community continues to move forward towards IMPROVING our lives here in our village, and that is refreshing. Are there naysayers? Sure. Anybody listening to them? These are good times for our village, with better ones just around the corner.
