I first observed Dunn County Sheriff's Office's Captain Kevin Bygd in 1989, when at age 19 he was hired as a jailer/radio dispatcher. At that time, I was an Inspector on the Wisconsin State Patrol, having been transferred to Menomonie in 1968. I was 30 years his senior and was impressed with the professional way this young man treated the bond posters that I brought to the Sheriffs Office.

After retiring from the Wisconsin State Patrol, I worked for the Dunn County Sheriffs Office part time as their Court Officer until 2010. I worked with Kevin while I was in that capacity as I processed his citations through the court system.

I have seen Kevin accept and conquer many duties and challenges. He never failed to enthusiastically " figure it out ".

His leadership roles as a patrol sergeant ( 2005-2013 ) and as captain (2013-present) have demonstrated that he has been involved in all aspects of the Dunn County Sheriff's Office.

I believe that Kevin Bygd is well prepared to serve Dunn County as your next sheriff.
