The Fond du
Lac County Sheriffs Office is announcing a pair of staff promotions. Sheriff-elect
and current Chief Deputy Ryan Waldschmidt says Captain Kevin Galske will be
promoted to Chief Deputy/Undersheriff and Lieutenant James Borgen will be
promoted to Captain/Jail Administrator. Both promotions will take effect
January 7th – which is when outgoing Sheriff Mick Fink retires.
Galske has served as the Captain and Jail Administrator for the past 12 years,
and has a combined 26 years of experience with the Sheriff’s Office in both the
law enforcement and jail divisions. Borgen began his career as a correctional
deputy with the Sheriff’s Office in 2002, and has served as a patrol deputy, sergeant
and lieutenant – and currently serves as the assistant jail administrator. According
to Waldschmidt, additional staff changes to fill vacancies created by these
appointments will be determined through a promotional process.
