Assignment Fox Cities

     Arnie Nettekoven spent 30 years on the Appleton police department, starting
in 1960.   Since retiring in 1990, Nettekoven still does police work of sorts.   He's
the custodian of the agency's museum, housed in the lower level of the police
     When you visit the museum you'll witness how officers performed their duties
for many decades.   You'll see weapons police used in protecting communities,
the uniforms they wore, an old police "call box" found on many street corners,
a hand-held radar detector, and a polygraph machine.
     Nettekoven is proud of a number of items housed there, including lots of police
badges and patches, plus an extradition order signed by then-New York Governor
Franklin Delano Roosevelt, ordering a suspect's return to Appleton.
     You'll find the story on our website,, under Audio Vault and Assignment
Fox Cities.  You'll also find photos of the items on our website under photo galleries.
     Police offer tours of the museum.  Just call ahead.
