The Lake Winnebago Area Metropolitan Enforcement Group is a collection of investigators from local law enforcement agencies within Outagamie, Winnebago, Fond du Lac, and Calumet Counties, dedicated to helping maintain a drug free environment in which our citizens can thrive.
Who We Are and What We Do
The Lake Winnebago Area MEG Unit (LWAM) consists of Law Enforcement officers from 20 Police and Sheriff Departments within Outagamie, Winnebago, Fond du Lac, and Calumet Counties. The primary mission statement of this unit is the enforcement of Chapter 961 laws within the four counties. Due to the size of the LWAM jurisdiction, and the limited resources available, emphasis is placed on investigations concerned with drug traffickers and drug trafficking organizations that import drugs into the area or produce them here.
The LWAM is controlled via a Board of Directors that consists of a representative from each of the participating agencies. Each participating member of the board has voting authority concerning any decisions affecting the unit. City of Fond du Lac Chief of Police William Lamb is the Executive Director of the Board.
The LWAM is funded through a combination of Federal Grants (administered through the Wisconsin Office of Justice Assistance), Asset Forfeiture, Restitution, and County contributions.
A Special Agent in Charge from the Wisconsin Department of Justice, Division of Criminal Investigation was appointed Project Director of the Lake Winnebago Area MEG Unit on October 1, 2002. Since that time, SAC Brad Dunlap has served as Project Director of the LWAM. A Special Agent from the Wisconsin Department of Justice, Division of Criminal Investigation is assigned as the Unit Coordinator (second in command of the unit).
The LWAM is dedicated to achieving a drug free environment in which our citizens can live. If you have information about drug activity, do not hesitate to contact the unit. Callers can remain anonymous.
