Editor's note: the following release was submitted by Brown County Sheriff John Merchant

I would like to take this opportunity to express my gratitude to the John Marxen Jr. family for the donation of an 800 portable and an 800 mobile radio to the Brown County Sheriff's Office.

John and his son, Connor, met with us Saturday to deliver a mobile radio and Connor also presented us with a thank you and sketch he made of our badge.

John, Kacy and Connor met with us several weeks ago and presented us with a portable radio.

Beginning January 1, 2024-- new KDOT regulations require that all radios purchased for public safety use must be capable of accepting updates the state requires. Not all of the Sheriff's office 800 radios have that capability due to budget constraints.

John Marxen and his family recognized this and wanted to give back to their hometown community.

John's family wanted to donate these radios in memory of his parents, John and Carol Marxen who were two of the most caring, thoughful, and well respected members of the community. It was an honor to accept the radios on their behalf.
