School Liason Deputy

David KuffelHello! My name is David Kuffel. I will be the Barron County School Resource Deputy for all the School Districts in Barron County. I am excited to begin this new position on January 5, 2015. I look forward to coming to the different School Districts and meeting everyone, although it may take a while to remember all the new names and faces!

I am a resident of Rice Lake and have been with the Barron County Sheriff’s Department for over 18 years. I have held numerous positions within the Sheriff’s Department that included Patrol, Investigations, Narcotics Investigations and various roles on the SWAT Team. I am also a certified A.L.I.C.E. (Alert, Lockdown, Inform, Counter, Evacuate) Instructor and can work with the School Districts in training the staff in this program.

I am married to Carla Kuffel, a teacher in the Cameron School District, and have 2 children, both girls! I love my time coaching with my girl’s athletic teams that has included soccer, softball and basketball so far. I am very active with my family and believe that we all shape the future through our children, at home and in the schools.

As a School Resource Deputy I look forward to working with staff and students to ensure the safety of everyone. I am hoping to bridge some gaps between the students and their perception of law enforcement in showing them that we are here to help besides enforcing laws. I plan to assist the School’s in any drug related issues with students and will assist in trying to prevent any of this from reaching our schools.

I am very excited to begin this new position and hope to work with each School District on your concerns and issues that I can assist with. I am very happy to have a chance to make an impact on the future with our children in such a positive sense in working with the children and not just enforcing laws. Below is my contact information and feel free to contact anytime to speak in you class, meet with a student or just to stop by for a fun event. I very much look forward to working with everyone.
