Letter from the Chief of Police

Chief Daniel Thompson

On behalf of the members of the Waukesha Police Department, I welcome you to our website. The members of the police department strive to work in partnership with the residents, community members, organizations, and business groups within the city of Waukesha. The Waukesha Police Department's focus is to be engaged partners in each neighborhood in the city. The department will utilize an intelligence-led, data-driven, problem-specific approach where we leverage technology while forming positive, respectful, and trustworthy relationships to work cooperatively with residents on issues of common concern.

I believe that both the community and the department share the responsibility in striving to ensure, that as engaged partners, we continue to enhance the quality of life for every citizen we serve. I hope that this website contains useful information, whether you are looking for departmental history, the agency procedures, roles and responsibilities of each division, or information on how to request services from the department. I encourage you to read past annual reports, which can be found in the "About the Department" tab.

It is my honor and pleasure to serve with humility as your Chief of Police for the great City of Waukesha. The department's mission is a pledge to serve with honor, integrity, and courage to carry out the shared vision of:

"Integrating intelligence to reduce crime in our community while forming positive, respectful, and trustworthy relationships through neighborhood focused engagements."
