Community Outreach

Two police officers talk with three children.

The Madison Police Department's longstanding reputation as a pioneer in community policing carries with it a tradition of innovation and a commitment to continuous improvement. We strive to identify trust gaps and challenges to our service mission in order to uphold our stated promise and to put into daily action its ideological underpinnings.

In this ongoing effort, the Department seeks to establish new and strengthen existing community outreach initiatives aimed at building relationships with those whom we serve. Community outreach starts with the Chief and filters throughout the Department, which has hundreds of thousands of contacts with residents each year — all of which are community outreach opportunities.
