Welcome to the Cedarburg Police Department website!

We are a progressive, community-oriented agency which serves a population of nearly 12,000 citizens. We are committed to making Cedarburg a safe, desirable place to live, to visit, and to raise a family.

We operate by the precept of our mission, which is:

"To maintain peace and order by providing the highest quality police services in response to community needs. We do this through apprehending criminals, developing partnerships, and respecting individuals."

With nineteen sworn officers and ten civilian employees, we are committed to serving the needs of the population through service, integrity and respect.

Service.

By providing quality responsive services, we offer protection in an efficient and effective manner, tempered with courtesy, compassion and understanding.

Integrity.

By upholding the public trust through honest, consistent and forthright interaction with all people in order to foster an atmosphere of mutual trust and cooperation.

Respect.

By treating all persons with dignity and respect by promoting equality and fairness, in upholding their Constitutional rights without regard to race, religion, sexual orientation or ability.

With public safety as our number one priority, we manage and oversee the Axillary Police and Emergency Management to make sure traffic, safety and security needs are met during high volume traffic experienced during our many festivals and events. This ensures a high level of response for natural disasters and unexpected threats to the community. From straightforward services such as crossing guards and vacation security checks to criminal acts and safety concerns, the Cedarburg Police Department is a dependable resource.

Our streets are safe and our numbers show it. We have consistently experienced a low violent crime rate, low citizen complaints, and we take pride in our accreditation with the Wisconsin Law Enforcement Accreditation Group's Governing Board. We are one of only twenty law enforcement agencies in the state to achieve such accreditation, which is based on law enforcement excellence by complying with standards deemed essential to the protection of life, safety and citizens' rights.

Please take a moment to access one of the many services the Cedarburg Police Department offers, including Vacation/Home Security Check, Hunter Safety courses, ticket reviews and more.
