The future of four officers will be discussed when the Kewaunee County District Attorney announces his decision on possible charges in an officer-involved shooting today. Kewaunee County Sheriff’s Department Deputies Jamie A. Tlachac and Jordan D. Salentine along with Sgt. Dustin E. Smidle have been on paid administrative leave since the officer-involved shooting led to the death of Tyler Whitmire on August 21. Another officer involved in the incident, Kewaunee Police officer Brian Gale, has since returned to duty. According to a release from District Attorney Andrew Naze, the announcement of a decision regarding the four officers comes 11 days after receiving materials from the Wisconsin Department of Justice’s Division of Criminal Investigations. A news conference is planned for 2 p.m. at the Kewaunee County Administration Center.
