National Police Week: Chippewa Falls officer working to comfort families in crisis

Remaining Ad Time Ad - 00:00

Chippewa Falls (WQOW) – National Police Week is all about recognizing the work our officers do, and a Chippewa Falls officer is doing more to help area families feel at ease when seeking police.

Along with his police work, Sergeant Korry Boos is working on a project at the Chippewa Falls Police Department to turn a storage room into the new family room.

Officers said the current room gets crowded quickly, doesn’t have emergency supplies and doesn’t provide the comfortable atmosphere many families need.

“Some of the worst situations a child could ever be in. To be honest that’s what happens here sometimes, so they [have] to tell us about really horrific things, and if we could give them a safe, comfortable space to do that in, that’s just better for everybody,” said Police Chief Matt Kelm.

All of the funds for this project are being raised through the Chippewa Falls Police Department Alumni Association.

Boos hopes to have it all completed by the fall.

A National Police Week Memorial Service will be held this Wednesday, May 15, at the Florian Gardens. It begins at 10 a.m. For more information on that event, click here.
