FdL County Detective Leads Kiwanis Discussion

Monday Morning
We had 18 members along with our guest speaker, Lt. Cameron McGee from the FDL Sheriff’s Department, at our first regular meeting of the New Year. Charlene Pettit announced that the Club Satellite is working on an evening social gathering in the near future. A tentative date of February 1st for refreshments and a fish fry at the KC Hall is being explored. Watch for more details in the near future. Gary Miller also is working on an InterClub to the Kewaskum Club for January 28th, a Monday evening. Check your calendars for availability. More details to follow in the next week or two. Pete Vercouteren was the 50/50 Raffle winner and he drew a two of Hearts. That’s not a winner so Monday’s game will have 40 cards with eight pay cards and a pot of at least $156.

FdL County Sheriff’s Department – Lt. Cameron McGee
Lieutenant Cameron McGee has been with the Fond du Lac Sheriff’s Department for more than 25 years and is currently in charge of the Detective Division of the Sheriff’s Department. Lt. McGee started in the County Jail and after about two years he moved to patrolman before he joined the detective division and eventually became the lead detective. There are six detectives in the department along with a Forensic Lab Specialist. The Detective Bureau is responsible for initial and follow up investigative work involving crimes of all natures. Detectives receive up to date training in areas such as Crime Scene Management, Death Investigation and Cyber-Internet-ID Theft to mention a few. Each Investigator carries an individual caseload and major crimes are often managed through teamwork. Lt. McGee noted that the Sheriff’s Department has brought two relatively high profile cases to resolution over the past several months, the Campbellsport arrow incident from this summer and the Wild Goose Trail sexual assault case from September 2011. Both of these cases were solved through the efforts of the Sheriff’s Department Detectives in collaboration with other law enforcement resources. Lt. McGee also noted that a major case, the multiple deaths/motorcycle accident on Hwy 151, is still in the investigative process.
