SEYMOUR – At its Monday, July 13, meeting, the Seymour common council swore in Blake Main as the newest police officer.
Main attended Northeast Wisconsin Technical College in Green Bay and graduated in 2020.
“Blake is our newest full-time officer with the Seymour Police Department,” said Mayor Ryan Kraft. “He started about a month ago, and we are excited to have him on board.”
Police Chief Isaac Schultz said Main completed 2,720 law-enforcement hours at the academy.
“Officer Main is currently in our field training program,” he said. “I want to thank his family for coming to support him today. Ethics, integrity and attitude are Blake’s main assets. He does the right thing, even when no one is watching. Today was a special day for him and his family, and I know he’ll continue to work hard for our city.”
Born in Green Bay, Main grew up in Kewaunee but moved back to the area when he was 20.
“It’s a great feeling, and I’m excited to be working for the Seymour Police Department,” he said. “I’ve had a great experience with the interviews, meeting the team members and working with the department thus far. I’m proud to be here. I want to make Chief Schultz and the City of Seymour proud.”
Main said he’s hoping to bring some of his life experiences to the job.
“I’m a bit older than some of the other guys I graduated with,” he said. “My goal was to become a school resource officer. I worked with kids at Howe Elementary School in Green Bay before coming here. I want to get involved in the community and help out kids. I’d like to show people that an officer is a normal person, too.”
