From the Chief...
I would like to welcome you to our newly designed website. This is a great place to look around and find out information about the Village and police department. Please stop back and look at the news and happenings of the Elkhart Lake Police Department.
This portion of the website will be used for me to update you on any information that I feel you should be made aware of such as local scams, events, law changes, and safety reminders.
News and Anouncements
- WILEAG Accrediation
On January 25, 2016 the Wisconsin Law Enforcement Accreditation Group board of directors voted to accredit the Elkhart Lake Police Department after a rigorous assessment process. The accreditation process is designed to verify that the Elkhart Lake Police Department meets the Board’s state-of-the-art standards and is a voluntary process which is a highly prized recognition of law enforcement professional excellence.
This accreditation demonstrates our voluntary commitment to law enforcement excellence by its compliance to a body of standards deemed essential to the protection of life, health, safety and rights of the citizens we serve. The Elkhart Lake Police Department is proud to be among very few accredited departments in Wisconsin and the only agency in Sheboygan County with this respected status.
Accreditation status is granted for three years, during which time the agency must submit annual reports attesting continued compliance with those standards under which it was initially accredited. For those wishing more information please contact Chief Meeusen at email@example.com or (920) 876-2244.
For more information regarding the Wisconsin Law Enforcement Accreditation Group, please write to WILEAG at P.O. Box 270693, Milwaukee, WI 53227 or firstname.lastname@example.org
- Move Over Law
Recently a Wisconsin firefighter was killed while assisting at the scene of a vehicle crash. Initial reports indicate that a truck did not see the fire truck until it was too late and when it swerved it struck the fireman and ultimately killed him. Wisconsin law required that all vehicles move over or slow down when approaching/passing stopped emergency vehicles. Please remember this when you are out and about driving. The fine for such a violation is $187 and 3 points assessed to your license.

Medications Drop Box:
The Elkhart Lake Police Department now has a medications drop box. The secure box is located in the lobby of the police department and is available to have any pill medications dropped during normal business hours. This program is in cooperation with the Sheboygan County Planning Department, and is intended to keep old harmful medications from entering our water supply. Any old medications can be dropped off, still in the bottles, in the box and will be disposed of without charge. No other medical waste, syringes, or liquids should be dropped off. Any questions, please contact us.
