FDL City/County Government Center Security Checkpoint Getting Closer to Launch


The new security checkpoint at the Fond du Lac City-County Government Center is getting closer to being fully operational. Fond du Lac County Sheriff’s Captain Bill Tadych says they’re making “great strides” in getting the checkpoint set up and ready for use. “Right now, we’ve got our X-Ray Machine, our walk-through metal detector, the construction area for that screening station has been done – there’s an office area that’s off of that – we’ve got our monitors in place, and the security firm that we’re working with, they should be here shortly to get all that infrastructure in place,” Tadych said.

When the checkpoint becomes fully operational, the north entrance to the building will become the only public entrance and exit point to the government center. The public will be asked to place any bags through the x-ray machine and walk through the metal detector before being allowed to enter. People who work at the City/County building will soon have their own employee entrance(s) and will scan-in via a key card or ID. Tadych says they are hoping to have the checkpoint up and running as soon as possible, but adds there are a lot of different vendors and construction firms they are working with and different things like signage that they need to finalize before moving forward. “It’s been a great experience, but we’re ready for it to occur,” he said.
