BARRON COUNTY -- Deputy Erik Sedani will fill the newly created full-time school liaison officer position for the Chetek-Weyerhaeuser Area School District, according to a press release from Barron County Sheriff Chris Fitzgerald.

Press Release

The Barron County Sheriff’s Department and the Chetek-Weyerhaeuser Area School District announce the addition of a full-time school resources officer. Deputy Erik Sedani started in the new role on Tuesday this week and will serve the Chetek-Weyerhaeuser Elementary, Middle, and High Schools.

Erik is a five-year veteran of the Sheriff’s Department and is excited about the role. Erik’s main role at the school district will be safety, building relationships with the students and staff, and serving as a resource both in and out of the classroom. Erik is married and has two children, ages 2 and 3 months.  

We are excited about this partnership with the Chetek-Weyerhaeuser Area School District. Deputy Sedani will be available at the school district every day from 7:30 a.m. – 3:30 p.m.  Deputy Sedani will also take part in after-school activities, groups/clubs, and other events including athletics. While safety is a key part of this position, being a resource for students and staff is what positions like this across the county excel at.

During the non-school months, Erik will move into our patrol division but will continue to take part in the Chetek community as needed.

Superintendent Johnson is excited for this position to get going and continue to enhance the safety of the students and staff and continue to build on the community relationships we already have in place in each of our buildings. Deputy Sedani will be a great addition to the staff and will be in our parking lots, lunchrooms, and classrooms and be part of our school and community.

Deputy Sedani can be reached at 715 418-1075 or
