Correctional Officer Assault

At 5:44pm on Friday, October 30, 2015, the Dodge County
Sheriff’s Office responded to the Waupun Correctional Institution to
investigate an assault on a correctional officer by an inmate.  Preliminary information shows that an inmate
assaulted a correctional officer and staff were able to quickly respond and
secure the inmate and tend to the officers injuries.  The officer received non-life-threatening
injuries and was treated at Waupun Hospital and released.  The inmate was subsequently transferred to
another Department of Corrections Institution. 
This is still an active investigation by the Dodge County Sheriff’s
Office and at this time no further information will be released so as to not
impede, but rather maintain the integrity of the investigation.
