John Siegel, La Crosse County’s upcoming sheriff, joins La Crosse Talk PM



La Crosse County's upcoming sheriff, John Siegel, in the WIZM studio for La Crosse Talk PM on Nov. 30, 2022.

John Siegel, who will become La Crosse County’s sheriff on Jan. 2, spent the hour in the WIZM studio Wednesday for La Crosse Talk PM.

La Crosse Talk PM airs weekdays at 5:07 p.m. Listen on the WIZM app, online here, or on 92.3 FM / 1410 AM / 106.7 FM (north of Onalaska). Find all the podcasts here or subscribe to La Crosse Talk PM wherever you get your podcasts.

A lot of the conversation centered around how Siegel wants to create and expand lines of communication with the public through town hall-like events, social media and the media. We also discussed, a bit, about the potential for an area policing board or a citizens’ policing board — as it doesn’t have a name yet.

We also talked about the county being the first in Wisconsin to allow free phone calls for people in jail, as well as the makeup of the jail, in general.

We did open the show talking about football, however, as John’s son, C.J. just wrapped up his senior year a standout corner at North Dakota.
