Sheboygan County Sheriff’s Department Makes the Case with (and for) LexisNexis® Accurint® for Law Enforcement

Using traditional information sources and investigative methods, it could take us several days to acquire enough information to determine where a suspect might be heading or hiding out. Under the circumstances, that’s a long time. Dangerous suspects such as this need to be apprehended quickly, before they can cause additional harm.  

-James Risseeuw, Lieutenant


Located on the western shores of Lake Michigan, Sheboygan County is home to over 120,000 residents and countless commuters and visitors every day. The Sheboygan County Sheriff’s Department is responsible for providing law enforcement services to this constituency.


  • Officers needed to quickly apprehend a violent suspect who fled the scene of a crime before he caused additional harm.
