He says they have learned so much over time about how to handle such situations safely. Fond du Lac Police got help from the Fond du Lac County Sheriff’s Department, the State Patrol and North Fond du Lac Police. North Fond du Lac Police Chief Darren Pautsch says they all worked together well. The incident was resolved in about 20 minutes time.
