Horicon Contracts with DC Sheriff’s Department

7/15/11 – Dodge County Sheriff’s Lieutenant Trace Frost will act as the head of the Horicon Police Department following the resignation of acting Police Chief Adrian Bump. On a 4-1 vote the city council approved contracting with the Dodge County Sheriff’s Department until Chief Joe Adamson returns from military duty this fall. Officials estimate that Frost will spend about 20-hours a week in the city at a cost of $50-per hour. About $10,000 will be transferred from the fund that paid Bump’s salary into an administration fund that will pay for Frost’s wages, benefits and the use of the county’s squad car. Adamson has been on leave from the department for more than two-years while serving as provost marshal for the Wisconsin National Guard in Madison.
