Together we mourn the loss of St. Croix County Deputy Kaitie Leising. Deputy Kaitie Leising was killed in the line of duty on May 6, 2023. Our hearts and thoughts continue to be with Kaitie's family and friends. Deputy Leising served with the St. Croix County Sheriff's Office since 2022. Prior to that, she served with the Pennington County Sheriff's Office in South Dakota, for approximately 2 years.


Take Action Honor Kaitie

A group of community members started the Take Action Honor Kaitie effort with the goal of raising $600,000 to ensure funding to:

  • Build the St. Croix County Fallen Officer Memorial Installation at the St. Croix County Government Center.
  • Support Kaitie's family and the St. Croix County Sheriff's Office Honor Guard traveling to Washington DC to the Law Enforcement Memorial Ceremony in May 2024.
  • Provide emotional wellness training to St. Croix County law enforcement officers and their families.

Learn more about these efforts, events, and how you can donate.
