    Marathon City Police Department History

     

    The earliest police logs were found in the “Police Justice Docket” dated July 2nd, 1924. Herman Greuger was the acting marshal. The Police Justice Docket was a hand written log of arrests, citations, and court rulings.

    It listed offenses, how the accused plead in the case, and citation amount. Marathon City held its own court proceedings. Citations ranged from $5.00 for being intoxicated in public to $25.00 for speeding in the village limits. Ninety percent of the logged complaints were for being intoxicated in public, fighting, and speeding in the village.

    Being intoxicated was a violation of Prohibition which was enforced from 1920 to 1933. In some cases offenders were put on probation under the village marshal for as much as 30 days. The Police Justice Docket was used to record violations from July 2nd, 1924 until September 20th, 1941.

    Around March 20th, 1926, John Dreugler became the acting Marathon City Marshal
    Around December 23rd, 1926, Gust Franke became the acting Marathon City Marshal
    Around August 12th, 1937, S. C. Krueger became the acting Marathon City Marshal
    Around September 7th, 1937, Matt Vetter became the acting town Marathon City Marshal
