Sergeant Becky Kaiser
Juvenile Programs are supervised by the ISB Sergeant and include the Police School Liaison Officer (PSLO) Program and the Drug Abuse Resistance Education (DARE) Program.
Police School Liaison Officers:
The PSLO program is made possible through a longstanding partnership between the Oshkosh Police Department and the Oshkosh Area School District. Five PSLOs are each assigned to one or more of the city's public schools with the primary goal of preventing juvenile delinquency through education and positive communication with students. PSLOs also respond to problems in their assigned schools, and assist when unusual events occur at the elementary schools. All of this helps to create a safer learning environment for our children.
There is one PSLO assigned to each of the two public high schools. Three other PSLOs share work among the five middle schools. PSLOs assist with appropriate classroom lessons on topics such as bullying, Internet safety, and laws involving dating and relationships. PSLOs also offer lessons on drug and alcohol use consistent with the DARE Program that's taught to fifth graders. During the summer months, PSLOs assist Detectives or return to patrol assignments.

The DARE Program is also made possible through the longstanding partnership between the Oshkosh Police Department and the Oshkosh Area School District. DARE is a school-based drug prevention Program taught by uniformed Police Officers to fifth grade students in Oshkosh schools. The DARE curriculum, revised in 2003 to incorporate the most effective methods, consists of a series of weekly classroom lessons that focus on making positive decisions and resisting pressure to use drugs, preparing students for their middle and high school years and beyond.
DARE is overseen by an advisory board comprised of police personnel, school staff, and concerned members of the community. The Oshkosh Police Department has six DARE Officers who all share PSLO or Patrol Officer duties.
