March 25, 2020 9:51 AM

Please see the attached flyer for the latest on MPD services to our community during COVID-19. 

MPD Services Flyer


Some MPD services will be modified during the COVID-19 pandemic:

  • MPD District Stations are closed to the public. The entryway to each district has a phone with a direct connection to the 911 Center that can be used to request an officer in case of emergency.
  • MPD will continue to take steps to minimize the likelihood of officers being exposed to COVID-19. This could mean officers not responding to some minor incidents, or handling some complaints over the phone.
  • MPD's administrative offices/windows are also closed to the public. To access these services:
    • Parking
      • Parking Citations can be paid the following ways:
        • Online at www.madisonpay.com
        • By mail: City Treasurer, P.O. Box 20, Madison, WI 53701-0020
