Misconduct allegations dismissed against Kronenwetter police chief


Kronenwetter officials reviewed possible misconduct allegations against the chief of police at a hearing Monday.

The police and fire commission dismissed those possible charges, and no disciplinary actions will be taken.

A village board member claims Chief Daniel Joling harassed and intimidated her after a board meeting in August.

A hearing began early Monday morning, and both sides called witnesses to present testimony throughout the day.

Kronenwetter board member Justeen Mallo-Vollrath says the chief was in her personal space, while Joling told investigators it was the other way around.

The Marathon County Sheriff's Department looked into the case, along with the Kronenwetter Police and Fire Commission.

Earlier this month, both the sheriff's department and the commission determined the chief didn't violate any rules and would not be disciplined.

Municipal court officials say Mallo-Vollrath had the right to a hearing after that decision was made.
