Neenah Police Honor Guard
The Neenah Police Department Honor Guard provides the department with a specialized ceremonial team who volunteer to represent the Department during functions such as parades, official ceremonies, and funerals for law enforcement officers. Members of the Honor Guard possess special skills and knowledge to preserve tradition, and properly honor and pay tribute to “those who went before.” Many hours of training are necessary to prepare for the varied events that the Honor Guard participates in.
The Neenah Police Department Honor Guard formally participates in opening ceremonies for many functions, attends funerals around the state, the Police Week Law Enforcement Memorial Celebration in Madison, Wisconsin, and Washington, D.C. Additionally, the Honor Guard assists in presenting the colors to open Timber Rattler games and Brewer games at Miller Park while our Neenah Police Quartet sings the national anthem.
Neenah Quartet members: Lieutenant Kathy Voelker, Lieutenant Pat Pedersen, Officer Austin Riska, and Officer Erik Douglas.
Neenah Honor Guard members are: Team Leader Investigator Vicki Strebel, Officer Larry Rodencal, Officer Bill Mohr, Officer Amanda Moe, Officer Paige Collins, and Officer Jared Reimer.
Special Weapons And Tactics (SWAT)
Police response to unusual, high risk, or emergency situations often requires specialized units trained and equipped to take effective action. The SWAT Team of the Neenah Police Department is specially trained and equipped to respond to these types of situations. Their primary goal is to isolate, contain, control, and resolve high-risk situations as effectively as possible while minimizing the risk to all persons involved.
The Neenah Police SWAT Team is made up of officers from various parts of the department that volunteer to be part of the team. These officers understand that much is expected of them and they must maintain a high level of work productivity, physical fitness, shooting ability, and tactical knowledge. The officers are tested twice a year on their fitness level and must meet or exceed the high standards or they will be removed from the team.
