The Junior Police Academy is now accepting applications! Many students view the police officer only in the role of “enforcer.” Junior Police Academy is designed to take the mystery out of law enforcement and provide a comfortable setting which allows officers and students to interact in an environment free from enforcement. It provides an opportunity for officers and students to see each other as people, rather than as adversaries.

On Saturday, March 20, 2021 shortly after 1:00 am Sheboygan Police Officers were dispatched to the 1200 block of S 13th St for a report of gunshots. Officers checked the area and spoke with neighbors but were not initially able to determine an exact location or locate evidence.
Later in the day a witness reported finding a shell casing. Officers continued the investigation and identified a 29 year old Sheboygan man who admitted to discharging his firearm into the air. There is no evidence this was done to harm or frighten anyone, and no evidence that anyone was injured in the incident. He was charged with Endangering Safety by Use of a Dangerous Weapon.
Sheboygan Police have identified the dog responsible for an attack which killed another dog after breaking free from its owner near N. 3rd Street and Superior Ave. on Saturday, 3/13/21.
Officers responded Saturday afternoon after a Sheboygan woman reported that her dog was attacked by a dog running loose in the area while they were out for a walk. Her dog was taken to a veterinary hospital for treatment and later died due to injuries sustained in the attack. The woman and a witness provided police with a description of the dog, and officers have been working to identify the dog and its owner since the incident by talking to residents in the area of the incident and collecting surveillance video.
A Sheboygan man came forward to law enforcement believing that his dog may be responsible for the attack, since it had gotten loose around the same time of the incident. Ultimately, after reviewing surveillance video from the area and interviews with the witness and owner of the other dog, the dog was confirmed to be responsible for the attack. The Sheboygan Police Department has declared the dog vicious due to the attack causing the death of another animal, and the owner is cooperating with the requirements of the dangerous and vicious dog ordinance.
The investigation shows that the dog got out from inside the owner’s fenced-in yard, and that the dog was up to date with rabies vaccination and City of Sheboygan animal license. The dog had recently been adopted from an out-of-state shelter, and the owner was working with an obedience trainer.
The Sheboygan Police Department appreciates the willingness of the dog’s owner to come forward and for the help of the community members living in the area so that the dog could be identified.
As a reminder, Sheboygan ordinance requires that dogs must be on a leash no longer than six feet whenever off of the owner’s property, and that the leash must be held by someone capable of controlling the dog’s movement. Dogs may be off-leash while on the owner’s property, provided they are under direct voice control while they are outside and unrestrained.
