17 May Click it or Ticket

               Click It or Ticket  Date: May 20, 2019 For more information contact: Sergeant Alan Witte 920- 648-2354  Lake Mills Police Department to mobilize for Click It or Ticket safety belt enforcement from May 20th to June 2nd.  Lake Mills Police Department will join hundreds of law enforcement agencies throughout Wisconsin for the annual Click It or Ticket safety belt enforcement mobilization from May 20th to June 2nd. As we enter another major travel season, we’re reminding motorists that wearing a safety belt is the single most effective way to protect themselves and prevent needless tragedies along our roadways. Currently, Wisconsin’s seat belt use rate stands at 89 percent, behind our neighboring states of Minnesota and Michigan that are both over 90 percent. Last year, about half of the car and truck occupants killed in Wisconsin traffic crashes were not buckled up. Our goal is voluntary compliance with traffic laws, not to write citations. But given a choice, we’d much rather write a ticket than have to knock on someone’s door and inform them that a loved one has been killed or seriously injured in a crash. So we’re reminding all motorists to buckle up, every seat, every trip. This year marks the 10-year anniversary of Wisconsin’s primary seat belt law that allows law enforcement to stop and cite motorists for failing to wear a safety belt. In addition, drivers can be cited for every unbuckled passenger in their vehicle. Last year in Wisconsin, there were 50,875 traffic convictions for failure to fasten seat belts....

02 Oct LMPD Receives Donation…

Pictured is Ken Stetson of the Lake Mills Community Foundation who is presenting a check for $21,065 to Chief Selck for the purchase of an Automated License Plate Reader (ALR) for one of the squad cars. The ALR will increase law enforcement officer efficiency in finding Amber Alerts, missing adults and suicidal person, stolen vehicles and other criminal actors in our community. The ALR runs every license plate that goes past it and will "alert" when there is a "hit" on the license plate. Chances are you have already passed ALR's as they are commonly used in public and private sector business. On behalf of the Lake Mills Police Department I would like to thank the Lake Mills Community Foundation for their VERY generous donation. As always I am humbled by the amazing support our police department has with our community. Thank you! Chief Selck ...

14 Aug Drive Sober or Get Pulled Over Campaign

                              CITY OF LAKE MILLS POLICE DEPARTMENT            DRIVE SOBER OR GET PULLED OVER CAMPAIGN Date: August 13, 2018 For more information contact: Sergeant Alan Witte To deter impaired driving, Lake Mills Police Department to participate in ‘Drive Sober or Get Pulled Over’ initiative August 17 through September 3 The Lake Mills Police Department will join hundreds of law enforcement agencies across Wisconsin to combat impaired driving during the annual “Drive Sober or Get Pulled Over” initiative from August 17 through Labor Day on September 3. Last year in Wisconsin, alcohol-related crashes resulted in 161 deaths and more than 3,000 injuries. Whether it’s caused by alcohol or any combination of legal or illegal drugs, impaired drivers endanger everyone along our roadways. During the Drive Sober or Get Pulled Over initiative, our officers will patrol in greater numbers and for longer hours to help prevent impaired drivers from killing or injuring themselves or someone else. While alcohol-impaired drivers remain a significant problem, a growing concern is drugged driving - people whose ability to safely operate a motor vehicle is compromised by legal or illegal drugs including prescription and over-the-counter medications. To help combat the problem:   Nearly 3,800 Wisconsin law enforcement officers have been trained in Advanced Roadside Impaired Driving Enforcement (ARIDE) to help detect and remove impaired drivers from the roadways   Wisconsin has 276 Drug Recognition Experts - among the most in the nation   There are 25 multi-jurisdictional, high-visibility OWI enforcement task forces operating throughout the year across the state   Rather than risk an OWI arrest or crash, the Lake Mills Police Department urges drivers to follow these common sense suggestions:   Report impaired drivers to law enforcement by calling 911. Provide as much detail as possible on the driver, vehicle, and location   If you plan to celebrate, identify a sober designated driver. Never allow someone else to get behind the wheel impaired   Download the free “Drive Sober” mobile app from the WisDOT website. The app includes a “find a ride” feature to help locate mass transit and taxi services   Some taverns and restaurants have programs to provide patrons a safe ride home. Visit www.tlw.org/ and click on Safe Ride   With the public’s help and through our year-round enforcement efforts, we’re working to make our roadways as safe as possible for all travelers.
