Occurred on Hy 30 on 11/9/03 at 3:30pm. U.S. Postal Service employee
reports after some back & forth traffic behavior between himself and the

Traffic incidents can be extremely dangerous encounters. Don't engage
a driver who exhibits aggressive behavior toward you. Avoid responding
with antagonistic behavior including "flipping" the person off,
tailgating and slamming on your brakes. You have no way of knowing if
the other driver is armed with a dangerous weapon. A better response is
to create distance between your vehicle and the other driver by slowing
down, changing lanes or turning off onto another road. If the other
driver continues to follow you, call the police (if you have a cell
phone) or drive to an open store or gas station and ask the clerk to
call the police.

Vending Machine Break Ins

the numerous cases and provided necessary information and updates to
Patrol Officers leading to the eventual apprehension of the primary
suspect. Great job Michelle.
On 11/26, traffic officers did speeding enforcement on 5100 block of

October traffic enforcement in the East District by traffic officers is

Madison Police Policy and Procedure Manual
If you have ever wondered about the policies and procedures that the
Madison Police Department sets for its employees, you can now look at
our policy manual on line. The topics it covers includes: how we must
dress when on duty, how we must act when on duty (and in some cases when
off duty), when we can use force and how much force can be used, how we
conduct certain investigations and how we respond when our employees are
affected by traumatic incidents. These are only a few of the policies
and procedures. You can look at our policy manual by going to
www.cityofmadison.com. Click on "Agencies". Then click on "Police"
in the list on the left side. Look for the Policy Manual in the list on
the left side of our webpage.
It's That Time of Year Again
Every year, all commissioned employees take part in a re-assignment
process. Captains and Lieutenants, who are not members of the police
union, serve at the pleasure of the Chief. Each Fall, the Chief
determines where each Captain and Lieutenant will work for the following
For the East District, it has been determined that I will continue to
serve as the Captain and Lieutenant Tom Snyder will continue to be in
charge of the patrol operations. Detective Lieutenant Sandy Theune has
been re-assigned to the North District Detectives. Her replacement in
East District will be Lieutenant Sherrie Strand. Sherrie had previously
been the Officer in Charge of the night shift. Thanks to Sandy for her
dedicated work to the East District and welcome to Sherrie.
The remaining commissioned personnel are members of the police union
and their re-assignment is governed by contract.
Detectives are allowed to pick their shift by seniority and express an
interest in a specialty (the type of crime they investigate). The
detective assignments are made primarily by seniority, but we also
consider the detective's skills and the needs of the Department.
We will be adding one detective to our East District, bringing the
total number of East Detectives to eight. Four of our current
detectives will be returning next year and four will be new to our
Patrol Sergeants and officers pick their assignments by seniority.
They are able to select the District they work in, the shift they work,
the beat they ride and their day off rotation. Patrol sergeants and
officers work 6 days with 3 days off. Obviously, the lower in seniority
the officer is, the fewer choices they have in each of these areas.
These assignments were made last week and will go into effect on Jan.
The Darbo Neighborhood Officer will also change in January. Many of
you may be familiar with the current officer, Denise Markham. Denise
will be returning to patrol in the South District. She will be replaced
by Officer Greg Rossetti. Greg has worked in the East District on the
evening shift in the Darbo area and will also be able to provide
exceptional service to this neighborhood.
Officer Anh Sweeney will continue as the Educational Resource Officer
assigned to LaFollette High School.
In January, I will provide a list of the East District Personnel and
their assignments. I can assure you that once again the East District
enjoys an exceptionally talented and dedicated group of sergeants,
detectives and officers.
That's all for now. Hope your holidays are wonderful.
Be careful. Be safe.
