LCO Police Assistant Director
The LCO Police Department recently added two new officers to their department with a swearing-in ceremony at the LCO Tribal Court.
The two new officers are Kelly Schultz and Christopher Leverton.
Kelly Schultz is a graduate of the Law Enforcement Training Academy at NWTC in Green Bay in May of 2018. Prior to that he worked 2.5 years Maximum Security Prison Officer at the Green Bay Correctional Institute. He is an avid Bow Hunter and restores old muscle cars as a hobby.
Schultz said he is looking forward to interacting with the community and getting to know the people here at Lac Courte Oreilles.
Christopher Leverton was raised in Hayward by his grandparents. He graduated from Hayward High School in 2010. After high school graduation Leverton attended Chippewa Valley Technical College to study Criminal Justice.
"I received my associates degree in criminal justice and then I went to the police academy for five months," Leverton said. "While in college I lived out my passion of football where I played three years of semi-pro football. I moved back home where I took on several part time Law Enforcement jobs until LCO Police Department had an opening in 2016 and I worked with the LCO Police Department until 2019."
Leverton said it was at that time he worked on growing his personal business in the Hayward area. In his free time you can catch him outside enjoying fishing, hunting, four wheeling, or doing various activities with family.
