Email Officer Schmitz
Hello, I'm Officer Schmitz and I've been a patrol officer for the Kohler Police Department since August 4, 2008. I primarily work the evening and midnight shifts.
Prior to my career in law enforcement, I obtained my Bachelor of Science Degree in Criminal Justice from the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee and then graduated from
the Wisconsin Law Enforcement Recruit Academy at Fox Valley Technical College.
Besides my patrol duties, I serve as the department's Defense and Arrest Tactics Instructor and Primary Field Training Officer. In 2018, I attended and completed the Field Training Concept in Criminal Justice Agencies course at Fox Valley Technical College. After completing the course, I was able to utilize the information learned to create and implement a new field training program for newly hired officers at our department. All new officers have successfully completed the program since it was implemented.
I enjoy working with our "team" of officers and plan to continue improving the training that I'm responsible for providing to them.
I am also certified in Driving while Intoxicated Detection and Standard Field Sobriety Testing, Drugs that Impair Driving, Law Enforcement Emergency Response, Heartsaver First-Aid, Medical First Responder, Reid Technique Interviewing and Interrogation, Crime Scene Evidence Technician, and ALERT Training Active Shooter.
In my spare time, I enjoy sports, hunting, fishing, snowmobiling, riding my Harley, and spending time with my wife.
