On behalf of the officers of the Madison Police Department, I would like to welcome all of our visitors and especially the citizens of the community we serve, to our website. Though we are a small agency with 11 sworn officers, we are faced with the same concerns as the larger departments. Our primary responsibility is the protection of life and property. We are also committed to improving the quality of life in Madison and strive to do our best for the citizens we serve. Through this website, we are attempting to inform you about the work we do and how you can assist us in being successful. No amount of technology can replace the value of citizens sharing information with our department to help us achieve our joint goal of a safe, healthy, and vibrant community.
