About Bill’s Scanner Group Column

Scanner Group often reports on and discusses events and community concerns that have detailed Law Enforcement issues involved.  We have long wanted information from a Law Enforcement Expert.  Active Law Enforcement can not fill that roll for many reasons including conflict of interest.  To meet that need, we have brought on a guest columnist.  William “Bill Froehlich” is a 30 year Law Enforcement Veteran with extensive education, experience and knowledge in policing, management and psychology.  He is also an accomplished Police Officer and K-9 trainer.  Read on to learn a little more about Bill’s background, interests and see some fun photos.  Each article posted will be posted to this page, as well as Jackson & Josephine County Scanner Groups.
