Plover PD Welcomes One
By Brandi Makuski
The Plover Police Department sworn in it’s newest officer on July 18.
Jacob Paltz, 22, is a native of Wisconsin Rapids. The Assumption High School graduate said he wanted to stay close to home, but chose Plover because he said it’s a “great community”.
“It’s a beautiful area, and I did my internship here,” he said. “I absolutely loved the department when I was here and met some great people. I knew this was the place.”
Paltz was sworn in before a roomful of village officials, along with fellow officers and his family.
Paltz, who graduated with a criminal justice degree from Mid-State Technical College, previously worked as a police officer in the Town of Rome and the City of Adams.
