About Our Department

Established in 1890, the Madison Police Department is a community-oriented organization that provides law enforcement service to the Rose City. These services include patrol, investigations, traffic safety and crime prevention activities. 

Our department, commanded by Acting Police Chief John R. Miscia is staffed 24 hours a day by a staff of 30 sworn officers including one captain, two lieutenants, six sergeants, four detectives, eighteen patrolmen, four communications officers, two Class II special officers and a parking enforcement officer. The Acting Chief is assisted by an administrative assistant and a records clerk.

We have an open door policy and encourage you to call or stop by anytime you have questions about the Police Department.
