Message from the Chief
Since 1875, the City of Oconomowoc Police Department has provided professional community-orientated policing to the community. Our dedicated men and women serve the community by providing services such as patrolling our streets, parks, and lakes. Our Detective Bureau investigates criminal complaints and provides educational opportunities to area organizations in various topics such as identity theft and crime prevention.

Working collectively with the Oconomowoc School District, a school resource officer is assigned to the schools to interact with our youth and assist the district in providing a safe learning environment.

Also, many of our officers volunteer their time to the Shop with Cops, a program where area officers raise funds to take disadvantaged children Christmas shopping. It is this dedication that makes our city a safe environment to live in and an inviting community to visit.

Our police, fire, and EMS dispatch center is staffed 24 hours a day, 365 days a year.

Mission Statement:
We are a professional police department; dedicated to providing the highest quality police service to the citizens we serve. Our mission includes:

  • Preventing crime, reducing the fear of crime, and apprehending those who violate our laws
  • Protecting life and property
  • Providing needed services to this community

Working cooperatively with the public, we strive to improve the quality of life in the City of Oconomowoc.
