Jim Ketchem Selected To Be Mayville’s Next Chief Of Police

(Mayville) The Mayville Police and Fire Commission has selected the city’s next chief of police. Currently, Jim Ketchem serves as a lieutenant in the Dodge County Sheriff’s Office and recently challenged Sheriff Dale Schmidt to take over the county’s top law enforcement position but lost during the primary election. Mayville Police Lieutenant Ryan Toellner has been serving as interim after former Chief Ryan Vossekuil left to take the same position with the Jackson Police Department. The common council will meet in closed session Wednesday to discuss salary and a benefits package for Ketchem who will have 30 days to make his decision.
