Spooner Police Current Events & Information

As a public service to our guests and citizens, the Spooner Police would like to notify you of current events, concerns and helpful information. 


SPD K9 Update:

As many of you know, Officer Peterson and K9 Bleu have finished the first part of their training and have been on active duty since the end of May 2016.

Officer Peterson and K9 Bleu have been very busy since being on duty.  They have done some Spooner Police K9 demonstrations and more demonstrations are planned throughout the summer and into fall.  They have been present at the Spooner Rodeo and other community events. 

K9 Bleu has been deployed and assisted Spooner Police Department in a few situations requiring his expertise.  K9 Bleu's presence is crucial to maintaining scene security, officer safety and de-escalating incidents.  Bleu has proven he is an asset to the officers of the Spooner Police Department.  We couldn't be prouder of Bleu and appreciate his ability, focus, determination and work ethic.  We are truly grateful and humbled for this opportunity. 

Thank you to everyone who has donated to the K9 fund in this past year and who continue to support this program. K9 Bleu and many other programs that are supported by the Spooner Project wouldn't be possible without the generous donations from our community!  K9 Bleu is very excited to be serving our great City of Spooner!

We will continue to raise funds to maintain our K9 program.  With the increase of drug activity in recent years,  the Spooner Police Department believes K9 Bleu will be instrumental combating drugs in our community and keeping Spooner safer.  Bleu will be used to locate lost or missing person if the need arises.  If you are interested in donating to the Spooner Project/K9 program, please contact the Spooner Police Department at 715-635-3527.

Bear Activity: None at this time.


Junked Vehicle/Appliance Memo - Recently, the Spooner Police Department and some City of Spooner residents have been noticing a number of junked vehicles in some yards and at some businesses around the City.  This would include junked or wrecked vehicles, inoperable vehicle and unlicensed vehicles (cars and trucks).  Our junked vehicle and appliance ordinance, #74-59, prohibits the practice of keeping these vehicles. 

Over the next few weeks, you will be notified if you have a junked vehicle, and will be asked to remove it.  You will have 5 days to do so, or a citation can be issued.  If the vehicle is not removed or licensed in 20 days after a citation is issued, the Spooner Police Department can have the vehicle removed and impounded, with the cost of the removal being charged back to owner.

If you have a vehicle for sale, it must be properly registered or it will be considered a junked vehicle. 

We appreciate your attention to this matter if you are presently in violation of this ordinance.  We like to keep our City a safe and clean place to live, and ask for your help in achieving this objective. 

Thank you,

Chief Jerry Christman

Spooner Police Department

Special Olympics Law Enforcement Torch Run - Thursday, June 6, 2013:

Members of the Spooner Police Department participated in 2013 Law Enforcement Torch Run for Special Olympics Wisconsin.  They joined members of the Minong Police Dept., Washburn County Sheriff's Office, District 7 State Patrol and Shell Lake Police Dept., as well as family and friends, in the relay bike/run to raise money and awareness for the Special Olympics program. 

Special Olympics is a program which reaffirms the self-worth of all individuals and encourages individuals with intellectual disabilities to reach for their full potential.  To help further the Special Olympics mission, members of law enforcement will be carrying the torch, which represents the "Flame of Hope", to help increase awareness and funds for the Special Olympics athletes worldwide.
