Main Street of Menomonie recently organized a Crime Prevention Workshop for downtown business owners and their employees in collaboration with the Menomonie Police Department and UW-Stout Police Department. 

Menomonie Police Department Investigator Dave Pellett and University of Wisconsin-Stout Police Chief Lisa Walters gave a 45-minute presentation covering a variety of topics, including work place violence, crime alerts and counterfeit money.

 "Downtown businesses were able to ask questions in an open format which presented some very informative opportunities," said Joanie Dulin, Main Street of Menomonie executive director.

The workshop included a hands-on activity with counterfeit money, a crime that Pellett and Walters reported is becoming quite advanced. They also shared information about crime and violence in the workplace and the crime alert abilities in the area. 

"Main Street is grateful for the opportunity to work with Investigator Pellett and Chief Walters to keep the downtown businesses current with crimes they may face today." Dulin says.
