VILLAGE OF BROWN DEER, Wisc. The Village of Brown Deer is suing a former police officer for the costs it incurred in training and equipping him for a job he left only a few weeks after finishing a state-mandated 13-week training and certification course.

The former officer, Barry Nelson, is now a deputy with the Sheboygan County Sheriff's Department. He contends in a counterclaim that the village owes him $793 his last paycheck and holiday pay that the village withheld as partial payment for the $17,827 it paid him for his certification, 13 weeks of pay while training and uniforms.
