14 Mar American Legion Law Enforcement Officer of the Year

Commander David Behling, It’s with great pride that I nominate Lake Mills Police Department’s Capt. Michael “Mick” Selck for the 2017 American Legion’s Edward J. Ormsby Law and Order Award. Capt. Selck has been employed with the Lake Mills Police Department for 23 years.  He was promoted from Sergeant to Captain three years ago and has done a remarkable job as the “2nd in Command” under the Chief of Police for this agency.  Capt. Selck’s performance in this capacity is highly noteworthy, as his commitment to duty and sincere pursuit of fair and equitable treatment of the department’s staff and citizens of Lake Mills are undeniably “2nd to none.” Capt. Selck has a Bachelor’s Degree in Criminal Justice from Winona State University and is a graduate of the Northwestern University Law Enforcement Staff and Command College. In addition to assisting the Chief with command and administrative duties, Capt. Selck is the department’s Lead Detective, Training Coordinator, Evidence Technician, Front Desk Supervisor and Dayshift Patrol Supervisor.  In addition to attending meetings on the Chief’s behalf when he is unavailable, Capt. Selck attends the Jefferson County Drug Task Force, Suburban Mutual Aid Response Team, State Traffic Safety Committee and Rotary meetings on behalf of the department. Capt. Selck is a decorated officer who has earned numerous awards and citations during his career, to include the Jefferson County Chief’s and Sheriff Association’s Officer of the Year, the 2006 American Legion Post 67 Officer of the Year and 2008 Top Gun awards, in addition to being the recent recipient of a Chief’s Commendation for outstanding investigative work with the City of Madison Police Department in solving a residential Burglary involving the theft of over 20 firearms. Capt. Selck is an exceptionally skilled and committed investigator. Over the past three years alone, he has worked on numerous complex cases to include four suspicious and drug-related deaths such as the Mill Pond drowning, the 2016 rash of business burglaries and car break-ins and most recently a prolonged high profile endangered missing juvenile case which made the media spotlight.  Due to Capt. Selck’s extensive knowledge, experience, tenacious methods and collaborative networking efforts with the FBI, DCI, Jefferson County Sheriff’s Department, Medical Examiner, District Attorney’s Office and surrounding agencies, his solvability and arrest rate is in the high 90 percentile range.  In addition, he is an invaluable resource to our officers who routinely seek him out for investigative insight and direction, to help them effectively and efficiently solve assigned criminal cases. It’s for the reasons stated above and more that make Capt. Selck an irreplaceable asset to the Lake Mills Police Department and the community it serves, in addition to qualifying him as being most deserving of this award. Thus I respectfully request your sincere consideration in acknowledging this officer whom I routinely refer to as my “Right Hand Man” for this prestigious honor. Most sincerely, Chief Patrick Matuszewski City of Lake Mills Police Department  ...

07 Mar Congressman Sensenbrenner has “Town Hall Meeting” in Lake Mills…

At 1:00 PM on Saturday March 4th, U.S. Congressman Jim Sensenbrenner held a “Town Hall Meeting” at the Lake Mill’s City Hall.  The meeting, which was attended by an estimated 250 participants, provided a great opportunity for citizens to express their political concerns and obtain insight firsthand from the Congressman.  Considering the crowd size and the current heightened state of political tension, the vast majority in attendance acted appropriately, with only one participant being dismissed by the Congressman, who was then cooperatively escorted out of the building by police.  The meeting will be aired on the Lake Mills Public Access television network.  Click on the link below for Madison’s Channel 27 coverage of the event.   http://www.wkow.com/category/135153/video-landing-page?autoStart=true&topVideoCatNo=default&clipId=13150360#.WLv_uyHjIkc.gmail ...
