My blog post last week announced the reestablishment of our Community Resource Officer (CRO) position in combination with the Village of Oostburg and the Sheboygan County Sheriff’s Department. This week I am pleased to announce that Oostburg resident, Brad Riddiough, has accepted our CRO position. Mr. Riddiough brings a unique skill set beginning with his early career focus as a 5th grade teacher in Wisconsin Rapids and Verona. Mr. Riddiough then transitioned into law enforcement, serving as a Deputy in Dane County. More recently, Mr. Riddiough worked for the City of Sheboygan Police Department serving as Sergeant as well as Lieutenant of Police in the Patrol, Administration and Criminal Investigation Divisions during his career. After his retirement from the City of Sheboygan Police Department, Mr. Riddiough worked as a full-time extradition agent transporting prisoners throughout the United States.
Mr. Riddiough was recently deputized by the Sheboygan County Sheriff’s Department and brings a wealth of experience in law enforcement combined with a love for education. He will officially begin his role on February 4th serving our school district and the Village of Oostburg. Please join me in welcoming Deputy Brad Riddiough to this new role!
