- ***UPDATED ADDRESS***Sex Offender Release Information (posted June 23, 2014)
The following is a media release authorized by the Outagamie County Sex Offender Community Notification Core Team. The Core Team is made up of representatives from local law enforcement, Department of Corrections, and the Outagamie County DA’s office. The Core Team evaluates and makes decisions on the level of notification to the community for the pending release of sex offenders under Wisconsin Statutes 301.45 and 301.46.

On June 1, 1997, Wisconsin State Statute 301.45 (Act 440), the Sex Offender Registration and Community Notification law became effective.

Because sex offenders may pose a continuing risk of engaging in sex offenses while in the community, protection of the public is of paramount importance. Community notification (the release of relevant offender information) furthers the interest of public safety and can enhance strategies for crime detection and prevention.

Sex offenders have always lived in our community. However, until the passage of Megan’s Law in 1997, law enforcement often didn’t know where offenders were living and were not able to share that information with the general public if such information was made available to them. Community notification is not intended to increase fear. Rather, it is our belief that an informed public is a safer public.

A sex offender who has been convicted of a sex offense requiring registration with law enforcement in Appleton will soon be released to this community and will be residing temporarily at a residence in the 800 block of W. Wisconsin Avenue. He has served the mandatory amount of institutional time as defined by Wisconsin Statutes. He is not wanted by the police at this time.

SEX OFFENDER INFORMATION BULLETIN

The City of Appleton Police Department is releasing the following information pursuant to Wisconsin State Statute 301.46 which authorizes law enforcement agencies to inform the public of a sex offenders release, when, in the discretion of the agency, the release of information will enhance public safety, awareness and protection. The individual who appears on this notification has been committed for a sexual offense. Further, his criminal history places him in a classification level which reflects the potential to re-offend.

This sex offender is not wanted by the police at this time. This notification is not intended to increase fear; rather, it is our belief that an informed public is a safer public.

Citizen abuse of this information to threaten, intimidate or harass registered sex offenders will not be tolerated.


Daniel R. Boehm (09/10/59)

Offender was found guilty of crimes he committed in Outagamie and Brown Counties (1995/1996). Those crimes included; 2nd Degree Sexual Assault, Burglary and Conduct Regardless of Life. Offender has a lengthy history of prowling, unlawful entry into occupied residences and sexual assault of females within those residences. He also has a history of fleeing from police.

Boehm has moved to a residence located at 927 N. Richmond Street (upper unit). He is under the supervision of the Department of Corrections. He will be equipped with a GPS device. His interaction with the community will be restricted by the standard rules placed on sex offenders and specific rules regarding the times of day that he can leave the residence and purpose of those trips. He is prohibited from being out at night without supervision.

Additional questions regarding Daniel Boehm can be directed to Agent Vickee Ostrowski, State of Wisconsin Department of Corrections at 920-997-4260, Tom Smith, Sex Offender Registration Program at (920) 720-3015 or Investigator Matthew Kuether, Appleton Police Department at 920-832-5500.

- Appleton Police Investigate Firearms Death (posted June 23, 2014)
On Sunday, June 22, 2014, at 7:43PM, the Appleton Police Department responded to a medical call in the 900 block of W. Winnebago Street.

The male, who was struck by one round discharged from a handgun, was transported to a local hospital. He later died from the injury.

- Sexual Assault Occurs After Online Meeting (posted June 23, 2014)
On June 21, 2014, an officer from the Appleton Police Department interviewed a 15 year-old female, who reported being sexually assaulted and battered by an adult male she had met through the phone application, Whisper. The incident occurred in Memorial Park at approximately 1:25 PM.

The juvenile reportedly had been contacted earlier in the week on her Whisper account by the subject. She provided a home address and agreed to meet him. While in the park, the male party became sexually aggressive toward the female. He touched the juvenile inappropriately and punched her in the face when she resisted his advances. He left the area following the incident.

The Appleton Police Officer was able to locate the subject on another social media site, based on information he had told the juvenile. With the assistance of the DePere Police Department, the subject was located at his residence and taken into custody.

Anthony D. Miller (M/W, 06/14/93), a resident of DePere, admitted his involvement in the incident. He was confined at the Outagamie County Jail on one count of 2nd Degree Sexual Assault of a Child, one count of Child Abuse-Intentionally Cause Harm and a separate count of Child Enticement-Sexual Contact. Each charge is a felony.

The Appleton Police Department encourages people to be active in the review of phone applications and computer sites their children may be utilizing. The Wisconsin Department of Justice has a page talking about various social media sites. See http://www.doj.state.wi.us/dci/icac/social-networking-sites

- Appleton Police Department Announces Bike Ambassador Program (posted June 16, 2014)
The Appleton Police Department continues to work with members of the community to ensure Appleton remains a great place to live, work and play. The department has recently trained 10 community members for a program called the “Bike Ambassador Program”.

These 10 community members will be highly visible when they take to the streets of Appleton. Each “Ambassador” will be wearing a bright yellow shirt with the words “Bike Ambassador” across the back panel.

The riders will be doing several things as they travel around the City of Appleton; primarily, they will model bike safety (proper use of bike lanes, equipment use, rider etiquette). They will also act as “eyes and ears”, reporting suspicious activity or crimes they may see while biking.

The Bike Ambassadors are trained by the Appleton Police Department in safe bicycling and to recognize suspicious activity. They will not engage behaviors directly; however, they will call the Appleton Police Department if they see activity meeting suspicious or criminal levels. They are not equipped with radios; they utilize their own bicycles and are community volunteers.

If you are interested in learning more about this new program, please contact Lt. Jeff Miller at the Appleton Police Department (920)832-5934.

For additional information, please contact Sgt. Lund at (920)832-5509.
