Collaborative Special Investigations Unit Between City of Kenosha and Village of Pleasant Prairie
Posted on 04/19/2021
During the Monday, April 19 Village Board  meeting, Village Board Members approved a Special Investigations Unity Agreement between City of Kenosha and Village of Pleasant Prairie. This agreement forms a joint jurisdictional effort between the City and Village, allowing Pleasant Prairie Police to assign a detective to a Special Investigations Unit that Kenosha Police leads. The agreement will combine and coordinate law enforcement resources between both Police Departments. The primary objective is to coordinate enforcement efforts, disrupt illegal use and abuse of controlled substances, and remove illegal weapons from the community.

“The Special Investigations Unity Agreement will benefit the City of Kenosha and Pleasant Prairie Police Departments," said David Smetana, Chief of Police. "This agreement allows Pleasant Prairie personnel to obtain additional resources during significant drug and violent crime investigations, creating a collaborative approach between departments that focuses on teamwork and building multi-jurisdictional relationships.” 

Both the Village Staff and Attorney reviewed and approved the agreement language before presenting it to the Village Board for approval. This agreement enables the investigation unit to cross jurisdictional boundaries and conduct criminal investigations that affect both jurisdictions.
