Grant Patrol

IN THE PAST SEVERAL YEARS THE WOOD COUNTY SHERIFF DEPARTMENT HAS RECEIVED A GRANT FROM THE STATE OF WISCONSIN TO PATROL THE NATIVE AMERICAN OWNED LAND IN WOOD COUNTY. DEPUTIES ARE ASSIGNED ON OFF DUTY TIME TO PATROL THESE AREA'S. A DEPUTY HAS BEEN ASSIGNED AS A LIAISON OFFICER BETWEEN THE DEPARTMENT AND THE INDIAN TRIBES WITHIN OUR COUNTY. THIS PROGRAM HAS WORKED OUT WELL TO BETTER THE COMMUNICATION BETWEEN OUR DEPARTMENT AND THE NATIVE AMERICANS.
