The man went to the wrong address initially.

Officer Hocevar was busy at the school. He cited one juvenile for disorderly conduct and in an unrelated incident cited another juvenile for theft. Officer Hocevar worked with school Administrators all week regarding numerous senior pranks being conducted. No one was hurt and there was no permanent property damage in any of the activities.
Chief Darin and Officer Schoch investigated a suspicious person complaint on Briarwood Ct. The concerns were due to a lack of communication. The issue was resolved to everyone’s satisfaction.
Officer Schoch responded to the parking lot of the Ulta store regarding a dog in distress. The anonymous caller reported that the dog was panting and that all the windows in the car were rolled up. The caller embellished. Officer Schoch found that the windows were all rolled down a bit and the dog was perfectly fine.
Officer Schoch assisted Sheboygan Falls Officers in attempting to locate a runaway juvenile from their city. They were not able to locate the party
Officer Schoch, along with our partners from the Kohler Fire Department, responded to a home where the owner smelled natural gas and a person in the house felt ill. The house was evacuated. The KFD determined a small natural gas leak was present and turned the gas off. The owner was instructed to contact the gas company. Paramedics checked over the person who was feeling ill. They refused transport, as they recovered after being outside in fresh air.
In addition to her busy daily duties, Administrative Assistant Jodie Kuklinski prepared responses to an audit of the KPD being conducted by the Wisconsin Department of Justice regarding our use of various Criminal Justice Information Systems. This audit is routine and is being conducted at all the other Sheboygan County Law Enforcement agencies as well. Though routine, the audit is very thorough – and demands thorough and well documented responses.
