Lomira Police Chief Resigns

(Lomira) The chief of police in Lomira has stepped down. Chief Bryan Frank elected to resign effective last Friday, which was accepted by the Lomira Village Board on Monday. Frank’s resignation comes alongside the announcement that a patrol officer and a part-time school resource officer are also leaving the department.

Village Board President Donald Luedtke says while these personnel changes will impact the level of service in the short term, village leaders are committed to public safety and are working to provide law enforcement protection for citizens. He says officers will provide coverage during the hours they are scheduled to work while the Dodge County Sheriff’s Office will respond to calls when local cops are off-duty.

Sheriff Dale Schmidt will be providing additional coverage by his deputies in the Lomira area, which Luedtke says the sheriff has done in the past during previous staffing shortages. Lomira Police Sergeant Mike Wheeler will take over the school resource officer position.  

Luedtke says he believes in a safe community that is well cared for, with strong and reliable staff, services, and infrastructure. He adds that the village board values its citizens and will ensure that they and its businesses remain a priority.
