Kenosha County Eye

Newly Released Records Show Kenosha Sheriff’s Department Captain Robert Hallisy Probably Put on Leave 2 Months Ago

Captain Robert Hallisy, Jr., 53, of Pleasant Prairie

We reported two weeks ago that Kenosha Sheriff’s Department Captain Robert Hallisy was reported to have been placed on administrative leave connected to the Kenosha riots. We asked Sheriff Beth for records related to his discipline, but statute makes that process lengthy. Beth, who is openly non-transparent, doesn’t like the public to have access to his records. He was sued successfully recently because he refused to release a police report. We had to find a work around to get the information. We reached out to the Sheriff to find out if Hallisy was indeed on leave according to our sources, and if so, why? He ignored our communications. We obtained the swipe-card data for Captain Hallisy. There is a record of every time he swiped his card to open a locked door at the Sheriff’s department. The county, through Corporation Counsel Attorney Joseph Cardamone III, initially attempted to delay the release of these records, but relented when threatened with legal action.

According to this report (see below) that contained data from 10-1-2020 to 1-28-2021, Hallisy was regularly reporting to work until early December, 2020. Then POOF. No activity up to and including today. This leads to the likely conclusion that Hallisy was placed on leave in early December and remains on leave today.

About Hallisy

The Kenosha County Eye has spoken with multiple people that work with Hallisy and the feedback has all been the same- he is a hard working and very competent leader in the department. Perhaps this is why Sheriff Beth doesn’t like him.

Captain Hallisy was promoted to Lieutenant in January of 2010, and assigned to be the Commander of third shift. As a Lieutenant, Hallisy served on the Kenosha County Traffic Safety Commission and was the Wisconsin Department of Transportation traffic grant administrator for the Sheriff’s Department.
