Village of Saukville officials were tight-lipped Tuesday after unanimously approving a proposed agreement that could spell out the terms for the resignation of a veteran police officer who has been on leave since January.

Following the direction of legal counsel, village officials would not comment on the separation agreement, or who it dealt with.

“In fairness, we really can’t comment on the separation agreement until he signs it. This is our offer,” Village Administrator Dawn Wagner said.

The Village Board agenda specified that the agreement was between the village and a member of Labor Association of Wisconsin, the union which represents the village’s police officers.

It is presumed the agreement involves police officer Jeffery Jiracek.

A 14-year member of the department, Jiracek has been on paid administrative leave since his arrest Jan. 15 following a roll-over accident in the Town of Belgium.

He was arrested by Ozaukee County Sheriff’s Deputies and was ticketed for first-offense of drunken driving.

Authorities said Jiracek had been drinking at a Port Washington bar on the evening of the crash after his shift with the Saukville Police Department.

According to authorities, a report from the Wisconsin State Laboratory of Hygiene Toxicology Section showed he had a blood-alcohol level of .18, more than twice the level the state considers as evidence of intoxication.
